We had amazing food, the Covid19 restrictions were followed including seating out party away from other tables, and the restaurant catered to our dietary requirements and offered to change a couple of items on the set menu to please the group. The server was very pleasant, engaging in conversation, making drink recommendations and just really looked after us. We all said how good the food was, and it was not necessarily what we would normally order which I think made it even better as it was all extremely delicious. Some of the party that had not been there before have already booked a return visit. I will definitely be back again soon also. Thanks for a lovely birthday dinner. 😊

The new set menu was just ok and overpriced for what we had with many of the same ingredients popping up throughout the courses.
I really missed the options on the normal menu. I also noticed that the wine list didn’t have the variety that we’ve seen before. The waiter was lovely and really helpful

I've dined here before and decided to take some friends during the first stages of the Covid-19 restriction ease. Yet again they have delivered. Awesome space with a great relaxed feel. The set menu we had was value for money and very delicious. Could not speak more highly of the Peacock Den.

The Peacock Den never fails to impress.
The food and wine are delicious and you feel right at home and don't want to leave.
Everything from the decor, ambience and luxury bathrooms are tastefully done.
We look forward to returning.

The menu hasn't changed much since our other visits. Food very good as always (except for some cartilage in the duck meat (we had a bone the time before). However, service was very slow - huge gap between some of our menu choices and little attention in between those waits to explain (mid way through the restaurant wasn't busy so not sure what the delay was).
One very noisy table that unfortunately made conversation difficult between us - not the restaurant's fault, but I guess it's down the the open layout.

Great food and wine list, overall Value is pretty good, we went on Valentines Day and it would seem they overbooked, service initially very slow, got better after a few requests.
Noise level was higher than expected for a cosy and romantic listing....

First time dinner here, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. One critism was that the food came put quite quickly, before the previous course had finished. Felt like we had to keep up with the chef. Otherwise brilliant.

Beautiful atmosphere. Food was all delicious. A great venue to kick back for an evening. Would probably suggest only a small group of up to max 4. Service is fantastic, everything is explained and you’re never kept waiting
