We always like to visit a restaurant at least twice before rating it - all places can have their off days. Our second visit to the Peacock, after a gap of several months, was just as good as the first - albeit a little more expensive.
In good weather it's very nice to dine in the extensive outdoor dining area even though it overlooks a busy car park.
A 'DIY' steak cooked on a hot stone at the table was excellent and served with three well-made dipping sauces (including Bearnaise). The steak and ale pie was also very good and served with a miniature glass of ale and extra gravy. Chips, veg and salad were all top quality.
The Peacock is a little more expensive than other nearby pubs but having tried all of them, we can safely say the extra cost is well worth it.
