Celebrated our first wedding anniversary at The White Peacock and had the 7 course taster menu with the taster wine. Excellent service, food and wine. Great value for money. One of the best meals we have eaten. We will be back!

Response from Kat G | Reviewed this property |
I believe the evening menu starts at 6pm they have different types of menus for different days like 4 course set menu to keep prices low and a la Carte, open times I'm not 100% as they aren't open every day
Are children welcome here? If so is there a children's menu?
