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.

A quirky little restaurant where the food is the star. Run by Ken and Becky we spent a very pleasant evening there on Thursday. The decor is dated and there are cork place mats but aTHE NEW fOOD I'd great!

For our second visit to Babbacombe we couldn't resist returning to The Peppercorn. Ken serves up excellent food in a friendly atmosphere and Beckie delivers with a wonderful smile. This a must. Highly recommended.

We went to Peppercorn mid August 2013. A group of 4 of us. We had been here before when the restaurant had a different name but the same owners. There were a number of fish dishes on the menu but other meals as well. The cuisine is towards the old fashioned end of teh spectrum but very good. I would... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions, and without fail have had a superb meal. The fish is always fresh and delicious and beautifully served - Ken is a great chef and the atmosphere is always good. At the end of the evening Ken comes out to talk to the guests to get feedback about their meals. We will... More

I do not know how Ken cooks them but they taste great. My husband is not fond of carrots normally so that says something. Becky is a very attentive host... More

We went there twice in June and it has taken all this time to think of another way on how to describe perfection without repeating what others have said. I was stumped until my husband reminded me that it is a extremely rare event to buy a chef a drink to say thank you for a wonderful meal. We brought... More

At the beginning of July 2013, my wife and I stayed for a week in Babbacombe at the Headland View guest house (see separate review). For eating out in the evening, we tried the Babbacombe Inn (OK) and the Buccaneer pub (better) before finding the Peppercorn Restaurant. It is a small restaurant catering for up to 24 people and has... More
