Although prices higher than average pub grub, the quality of the home cooked food and ingredients more than justifies this. We had steak & ale pie, and a lasagne. Both delicious. Our first time here. Won't be the last.More

Lovely old fashioned pub. Hubby liked the local ales. Lots to choose from on the menu. I had a game pie which would have been lovely but slightly overdone. My husband loved his steak pie. Good portion of meat. Food slightly overpriced perhaps.More

We offer accommodation varying from lovely traditional type rooms in the old stables fully converted with en-suite bathrooms (showers only) inc full English breakfast if booked direct with the Peacock as opposed to third party web sites - Book direct with the Peacock to achieve a better deal. The Pub has a very varied menu that is all prepared and cooked on the premises by very skilled competant chefs with many fantastic specials.
