We came down two nights ago and we went back to our favourite - Peppercorn restaurant. Once again, great food, we had a lovely evening! So glad that Ken and Becky are still here!

We visited for Valentines night and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious. I had a steak and my girlfriend had duck breast and they were both cooked to perfection and very tasty with a good selection of vegetables. The starters and desserts were lovely too. We will definitely visit again sometime. Thanks for a fantastic meal!

A return visit to this lovely little gem of a restaurant. The food is always cooked to perfection and there are always some surprise dishes on the 'Specials' board. Ken & Becky are excellent hosts and I only wish that I lived nearer to enable me to make the visits to this superb restaurant more frequent.

A lovely couple, great food, salmon in a peppercorn sauce and steak in a merlot and mushroom sauce. It was a special meal to celebrate our Silver Wedding and it was a great evening.
