I visited this restaurant on Sunday 17th September. I chose the lamb roast, and my friend chose the beef. At £7.99 it is excellent value for money. It is the best Sunday lunch I have paid for. The staff were really friendly and the service was very quick.

Was not told when booking that it was not full menu on a Sunday. Booking had been taken down wrong and we had to fit 7 at a table for 6 which made table very cramped. Waited and waited for kids menu and had to remind when they came to take food order we still hadn't had a kids menu. Seemed a rather excessive wait considering how many people were in. Veg very crunchy. Food went cold quickly. Was rapidly running out of choices on pudding menu.
Was there 2 hours in total having to wait for a main & desert.
To top it off was told when we paid they couldn't give chance out of a pre paid receipt so had to loose the rest of it.
Bitterly disappointing.

After just leaving the local hospital we decided to pop into The Peacock to try and get something to eat
We were greeted with welcoming smiles from the staff and quickly shown through to a table in the dining room and given menus
we were soon asked about a drink and ordered them together with our food
the menu showed daily specials and then some A La Carte options and finally some regular pub favorites
we decided on scampi and chips and a portion of beef and ale pie and chips
the drinks were served and very shortly afterwards came the food
scampi was freshly cooked and delicious
the pie was hot , tasty and full of meat
the staff were very pleasant and attentive and gave us some useful information when asked regarding their Christmas menu
the dining room had several tables occupied, people coming regularly , also the bar was busy and food was going through there again regularly
the area was very clean , the toilets were modern and spotless
all in all a pleasant quick experience but one that we would recommend and probably revisit with friends to enjoy the cuisine and atmosphere at a more leisurely pace

We have visited The Peacock on many occasions and have recommended it to others as well.
On this occasion we booked a table for my husband's birthday as he loved the menu so much...... it was disappointing when the food was served either barely warm or on two dishes burnt! I did bring it to the attention of our server and to be fair they only charged us for the starters. However, when you want to treat your husband and the family with a hearty meal and we ended up having cheese toastie when we got home.
Unfortunately we were told a new chef was there but in all honesty I believe our 10yr son could have cooked better than that.
We WILL NOT BE RETURNING there again, which is a shame as we have been frequenting there for a good few years.
