This looks like a vanity press. A Google search with the word vanity or scam turns up a lot. Here's a sample: https://www.sfwa.org/other-resources/for-authors/writer-beware/thumbs-down-publishers/ (This is the gold standard on informing writers), https://www.writersandartists.co.uk/community/discussions/pegasus-publishinggood-or-bad

Piggy backing off Debbie's reply, "Writer Beware" has a blog, with a search function (topish right) https://writerbeware.blog
There seem to be 3 "Pegasus", 1 in uk, 1 in california, 1 in NY. I'm not sure which you're asking about but here's another of WB postings that do mention Pegasus UK.

A Google search with the word vanity or scam turns up a lot.
And above, what Debbie says is spot on, adding any publishers name before or after "vanity" or "scam", is a great research tool.

"Penelope and the Humongous Burp"
"Penelope and the Monsters"
"Penelope and the Preposterous Birthday Party"

As others have said--they are a well-known vanity press. They'll be happy to publish your book in return for thousands of dollars, though that may not be clear yet...
