We just had a wonderful evening celebrating our 32nd anniversary at The Perch in Princeton (The Peacock Inn’s outside restaurant). It was the first meal out we’ve had since early March. Chris and the staff spoilt us rotten, and our meal culminated in complimentary pink...More

Over the years, we have been to the restaurant at the Peacock Inn several times, from the day it opened its doors and throughout its several overhauls and reincarnations. Until now, we couldn't say it was our favorite. But it is different now. Our June...More

This hotel over rates itself. The rooms are tight and noisy. I could hear everything, yes everything, in the room next to me. Nothing special in rooms, like coffee or a refrigerator. They offer a continental breakfast for free but is nothing but sugar, who...More

The cooking is okay. The service is wretched from the bar to the table. They don't know the difference between an amuse bouche and an aperitif. And the little dishes they offer are mediocre at best. Prawns were ordered as a main;shrimp were served. Ugh.

We haven't been to Peacock Inn for years; the restaurant has been going through several modifications and transformations, with chefs coming and going, and the ownership changing hands. Our recent visit, however, was a nice surprise. The rigid tasting menu has been changed into a...More
