We have just visited the peacock which is about 20 mins from Melton Mowbray on the Grantham Road. We had a very friendly and warm welcome by the couple managing/owing the pub. I had a mushroom goulash, creamy stater which was lovely, and my partner had deep fried Camembert! For mains I had a large piece of salmon, which was perfectly cooked, with butter and dill sauce, and it was served with a dish of buttery new potatoes and mixed leaf salad. My partner had fish and chips and they were really very good...much better than other pub fish and chips we've had. Both portions were piping hot and a good size (not over facing though). I managed to tuck away the nicest chocolate mud pie and ice cream too!
It was unpretentious dining, with a friendly atmosphere. We'd definitely go again.
