Closed through March 24, 2021

Due to the Governor’s mandate, we will be closed starting Saturday, December 12th. In an abundance of caution, we will remain closed until March 24, 2021.  Our main priority is the safety of our staff and guests. Under these uncertain times, we feel this is a necessary, responsible decision.

The Lumberville General Store will remain open with expanded hours (7:00 AM – 7:00 PM) to help provide you with a dining alternative during this challenging time. We’ve expanded our Take-out menu and continue to offer outdoor dining at the store.

Our team will be available by phone or email Mon – Fri 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM should you need to contact us. Gift cards can still be purchased and we encourage you to do so.

Stay safe, and please be responsible so that we can all do our part to vanquish this horrible pandemic. We look forward to seeing you in late March.

Remembering Jack Thompson

Jack Thompson DoylestownTo Our Employees, Guests & Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that the owner of the Golden Pheasant Inn, Jack Thompson, passed away on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. He was 89 years old.

His focus was clearly on taking care of our employees and guests. His noted phrase being “We are not in the automotive and restaurant business, we are in the people business.” He cared deeply about the community that helped to make him a success. He was passionate about land conservation and historic preservation.

Please say a prayer for him and make a toast in his honor. He will continue to shine his warm spirit on all of us.

We invite everyone to use this memorial website to share your thoughts and fond memories of him.

Warmest regards,
Laura Thompson Barnes

Welcome to our picturesque Bucks County inn nestled between the Delaware River and the Canal. This land was originally acquired in 1769 as part of the London company land grant. However, the original tavern, known as Waterman’s Inn, was not constructed until after Joseph Haney purchased the property in 1811. In 1832 the Pennsylvania Canal was opened as a means to transport materials, primarily coal, to Philadelphia and New York City. The new canal ran directly behind this property. Over the next hundred-plus years the tavern changed hands many times.

Finally in 1986 it was purchased by the Faure family who ran the restaurant and inn until 2019. In 2020 the Golden Pheasant Inn was reopened by the Thompson family who have a passion for protecting historic properties and land in the area. They also own the Black Bass Hotel and the Lumberville General Store which are located seven miles south on River Road.

We are committed to carrying on the tradition of welcoming hospitality, delicious French-inspired cuisine, great wines and warm, inviting lodging in this idyllic setting.
