“A light lunch with family.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

After enjoying coffee and cake on a number of occasions here, I booked a table for myself, my daughter and granddaughter for lunch.
We shared a platter consisting of a variety of cheeses, olives, pate etc with lightly toasted bread and a large bottle of mineral water.
Service was quick, friendly and helpful and a high chair was available for an eighteen month old. We ordered extra bread and butter and the baby enjoyed this too with a little pate and cheese. As we were leaving we were able to purchase some cheese and other items including cake from the deli counter to take home.
An enjoyable interlude, hopefully to be repeated soon!

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Visited this The Peppermill a couple of weeks ago, spur of the moment sort of thing on our way to an afternoon matinee in the local fleapit (lovely retro cinema actually). Got to the restaurant too late for lunch (3pm) the chef had gone, but the proprietor got behind the open plan kitchen counter and rustled us up a most delicious and satisfying fish chowder with lots of fish and prawns. A huge portion, followed by what can only be described as the best carrot cake I have ever eaten, light and crumbly with intense flavours. This was in addition to a large house white wine and two coffees, can't remember the exact cost but it was very reasonable. A very charming, neat and clean establishment very welcoming for a full blow-out or just a read of the paper and a "damn fine coffee".

“Excellent!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have eaten here several times with friends, family and also attended a Xmas party.
Excellent quality food superbly presented every time, always a great menu with something for everyone. Service is very professional and just the right amount of attention. Can't wait to have a 'Peppermill' fix soon.

“Fantastic flavours”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had Saturday lunch en route to a weeks break

A family of four, we enjoyed this lunch so much, very high quality dishes and real value for money

The Pasta of the day was Chorizo and Goats Cheese - absolutely delicious and the Deli Board and Steak Sandwiches were top class

All tables were full and everyone seemed happy and enjoying their food and drink - exactly as this type of experience should be but so rarly achieved - the Chef in the open kitchen worked wonders - good food, good service and a real treat. We strongly recommend!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Visited the PEPPERMILL for probably the 4th or 5th time today. It was such a dissapointment and we won't be going again. Coffee served way too hot. ( why do places do that?) the burger was dry and uniinteresting and worst of all the fish chowder with absolutely no fish in it. Such a shame that the quality has disappeared already in favour of making a quick buck. So disappointing.

I am disappointed in your remarks regarding my establishment and it seems a shame you didn't bring these issues with me at the time especially as you have been in several times. I don't believe the quality of our food has gone down and since we have had the chower on the menu we have sold 364 portions and your are the only person to say this, like wise the burger which is hand made by the chef, we have sold 590 since putting them on the new menu again no complaints in fact nothing but rave reviews about them so these comments do surprise me.
