Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Each month my husband and I along with our neighbours pick a ‘local’ pub for a Sunday lunch. Today’s choice was very special. The building looks welcoming and the serving team were very polite and approachable. But without lessening their role in this (the servers),...it was that kitchen staff that trumped it all. Or meat trio Sunday roast was something special and our malteser cheesecake and malva pudding were both gorgeous. We are planning on returning for the pie nights and the opportunity to sit outside in the peace and tranquility. But the biggie here - we will be on the lookout for the Christmas menu and booking dates. I think we have picked our special end of year treat. Thank you to everyone at the Peacock for a very enjoyable lunch.More

After a visit to a nearby farm for a lambing experience we ventured along her during mid-afternoon on the Saturday of the Easter weekend. We were absolutely staggered to find them serving food at 3pm. Normally unheard of in this country where hospitality is so...bad. A delightful little place, charming landlady and staff. Well worth a visit as it deserves to succeed.More

The food served at the Peacock Oxhill is consistently good, but this traditional English country pub is also great if you just want a few drinks. It’s well worth while keeping an eye out for The Peacock‘s FB posts To ensure you don’t miss out...on special live events that usually happen on a monthly basis. Live music performed by talented artists is always an excellent way to spend an evening. When these events are performed in a traditional pub setting, the experience is all the more enhanced. The Peacock is a lively vibrant venue at the weekend, but offers, relaxation during the week. So whatever you want The Peacock in Oxhill offers great value in a superb setting.More

Visited for Sunday lunch as in the area camping. The Peacock was busy and it was a good job we had booked although it didn’t affect the service and quality of the food. Portions were great and the food was great. Staff were very friendly....The only let down was the shortage of beef. However the lamb shank was devine. Hope to visit again when in the area.More

I went camping with my friends for a long weekend, on our last night we decided to go out for somewhere to eat. The closets place to go was the peacock in oxhill, we had a lovely walk through the public paths to the pub....This pub was a very lovely pub, it had great atmosphere and the staff was very friendly and welcoming, the place was very warm and cosey, Me and my friends then ordered food and it was amazing for our starter we had a camembert sharing starter, this was amazing and it fed all 5 of us and they gave us extra bread which was really nice, I then had the haddock and chips . let me tell you the chips was amazing they was these gorgiuse crunchy thick cut chips which tasted like heaven it was the best i have ever tatsed. To the point I can't stop thinking about them they was just too good, the hadock was really good aswell and then for my dessert i had the hot brownie with icecream, this was amazing aswell, if you are ever in oxhill or near oxhill I would recommend this pub complety for drinks and food and one day i will hopefully be able to return to ordef rom them again.More

What a great surprise, had planned to visit Farnborough Hall (National Trust - great) and was looking for somewhere for a light lunch nearby (The Peacock is less than 10 mins away). Small cosy Bar and larger Dining Area. A warm welcome and smile from...the young Barlady (and waitress). We shared three starters and a very decent bottle of Pino Grigio. 26.50 The three starters Bruchetta, Sliced courgette, Olive Oil, raita - gourgeous, fresh flavours 6.95 Hummus & harissa roasted carrots pomegranate & hazelnut dukka spice, flatbread - wonderful textures and flavours 7.95 and Lamb koftas toasted flatbread, cucumber & mint tzatzik 9.95 - very flavoursome and quite spicy All were beautifully presented and yummy - were we tempted to repeat them all again - yes - did we NO! More than enough for a light lunch For anyone reading this who has heard of Otelenghi in London - these starters were very much in this style. I would say, even better. Prices are not cheap BUT Quality exceptionally high Visit and enjoyMore

We booked a table for 3 for Sunday lunch - 2 meat eaters & 1 vegetarian + a dog! The staff are very friendly & helpful (both on the phone & in person) & the food was lovely - really good portion sizes & the...vegetarian option was a very tasty & freshly made stuffed red pepper with all the trimmings of a roast dinner! The meat eaters were very happy with their roast beef & roast chicken options. A very nice place to spend a Sunday lunchtime.More
