We regularly use the Peacock as a convenient place to meet in the afternoon and the the service is always good. There is not a large range on offer but what is offered is good. It is sometime since we have had an evening meal there but when we did the food and service were excellent.

Have called in several times and food I'm the bar has always been good. Not the cheapest place around, but quality of food and ambience makes it good for a treat.

The food, the service and the attention to detail was fantastic! Yes it was pricey, but worth every penny, in our option you get what you pay... More

Four of us went for dinner here at the end of November. We would have liked to pre-dinner drinks in the cosy bar but were told it was full, but we could have drinks in the lounge. We failed here too as there was no room there either. So we went straight to our table in the dining room. The... More

Great atmosphere warm and welcoming on a cold dark night ,lovely staff cheerful and happy. Great food beautifully presented and lovely wine from a interesting choice. On ordering a 250 glass it came in its own carafe so we didn't have a huge amount in the glass What not to like.

Have eaten at The Peacock before, and all was fine. Went for a meal on Sunday evening, and whilst generally ok, ie surroundings, friendly helpful staff etc, my main course was really disappointing. Advertised as Fish of the Day, I was told it was hake. Again fine, but I should have asked about accompaniments. The hake was well cooked but... More
