This restaurant is so welcoming as soon as you walk in. I love how everything is cooked in the wood stove. Very rustic feeling and definitely a great date spot! We had a good bottle of wine with our meal as well. Be sure to make a reservation as it gets crowded! The meal can get a little costly, but... More

This was our 2nd time at Peasant and we will definitely have a 3rd. The wood fired bocconcini was amazing, suckling pig...not to be missed and the skate dish was simple but very savoury. Don't forget to save room for dessert...especially the flourless chocolate cake,

Very good food, beautiful restaurant, great staff. Chilli octopus had a real kick. Suckling pig was gorgeous, as was the swordfish. Early table didn't detract from the atmosphere, would definitely go again. Relaxed place to eat, come casual or dressed up, both are fine.

The food was beyond fantastic. My husband and I shared the baby octopus app and wished we could have had it as an entree. It was crispy but not chewy. It made me feel like all octopus I had been served in the past was done wrong LOL.

Decent food (pasta that gave new meaning to "al dente"). Condescending waiter, famously saying Peasant "is not your chicken parm joint". Who asked? Enough said. You get the gist.

Booked back in the UK for a Valentine's meal after reading some reviews and we weren't disappointed. Tthe service was faultless, atmosphere and setting great despite it being a busy night. We did get the impression they were trying to turn the table as quickly as possible - our starters were served within 5 minutes of ordering and the bread... More
