Golden Pheasant Sponsor Blog 2019


The Golden Pheasant have strengthened their Friendchip with Lenzie GalaFest (see what we did there!) to support the celebrations for the second year in a row. In addition to this they will also be bringing traditional Fish and Chips to the event, a much loved foodie favourite, to our street food court. 

Established in around 1965 the Golden Pheasant has established itself as a firm, family favourite amongst Lenzie locals, families and their beloved pets. It is this great energy and support from Scott and his team that demonstrates why many people choose the Golden Pheasant to eat, socialise and enjoy each other’s company. Just on the outskirts of Lenzie, a scenic walk across the local golf course is one way to get to this popular bar & restaurant & makes the refreshments all the sweeter. 

Lynne Jhangeer, Sponsorship Team Leader, had this to say: 

‘Scott and his team at The Golden Pheasant couldn’t wait to be a part of the 40th anniversary celebrations again this year and we are grateful that this dedication to the community and the event will help to contribute to the costs involved in keeping this family friendly tradition alive. We are looking forward to a nostalgic trip down memory lane with Fish and Chips. Quite appropriate really for a community party celebrating its fortieth anniversary.” 

The Golden Pheasant is a family friendly bar and restaurant situated in the small village of Auchinloch just outside of Lenzie, with beautiful views over the roaming Green Campsie Hills. Established in 1965, Scott and his team took over in 2013 to reopen this much-loved community pub and restaurant after a short closure. It has since grown from strength to strength and offers a variety of delicious meals, bar snacks, entertainment nights and the odd tipple which includes a wide range of speciality spirits & all the old favourites too! Scott & his team also offer a wide range of catering services through their sister company First Class Catering & are resident caterers at Lenzie Golf Club. Further enhancing their place in the Lenzie community. 

Scott Mackie, Company Director at The Golden Pheasant said: “We are absolutely delighted to be involved with Lenzie Gala day for the second successive year. We had great fun last year and are hoping for an even better day this year! We have tailored our food offering slightly to incorporate Fish and Chips, a cornerstone of our menu at the pub! We have a great relationship with local fish merchant John Vallance and only use the finest quality fresh haddock. Don’t take my word for it though, pop down and see us on the day for a taste! “
