We dined here and had an amazing diner. Food and wine were delicious. Service was excellent and friendly. We had a table inside the shop since the weather was a bit cold. Lovely experience.

The food was of high standard, not to expensive and they have a excellent wine list. Service was a bit slow. Good value for money.

Wild Peacock has a great menu, although not very expansive, there is something for everyone. The waiters are very attentive and the food was delicious. Well worth it!
