I was recently looking for some friends at the Peacock. The landlord and guests were extremely helpful and it turns out I was at the wrong Peacock. Landlord helped me to find directions to the correct place. Very welcoming.

Rang to enquire if the England Rugby game was being shown as passing through the area at that time, I was dismissed quite quickly by a grumpy man over the phone who found it too much trouble to open. In his words 'I've opened for the past two weeks and no one came in, so I'm not bothering this week... More

My friend and I find that it is always a pleasure to go to The Peacock. It is an excellent pub with excellent facilities: it is very friendly and everything is on ground floor level. The pub is spacious and it has a big screen that is great if you want to watch it but if not, the screen doesn’t... More

Visited the pub / guest house to watch first 6 Nations rugby tournament England game, and found the pub brilliant atmosphere, no way I could fault it in any way. The people behind the bar and friendly, waited no longer than 2 minutes to be served and I only really drink Stella, and the pint was served to perfection. There... More

Ok, where to start. The landlord's attitude was appaling. No smile, no hello, nothing. When he finally came to serve me, after a chat or two with others at the bar, I asked for a beer with a good head, he didn't even make eye contact, i can't be sure but maybe there was a hint of a grunt. He... More

I was totally gob smacked, I have never felt so awkward in my life. I walked out and went to the travelodge not far from this place. We are contractors and we regularly work away from home, I have never met any one so rude in all my life. I'm all for supporting small business's and I would much rather... More

Visited with old friends who live in the town. No welcome or even eye contact with barman /landlord. Whole atmosphere was unwelcoming, can only think with the amount of TV's in such a small area, the main customers must be locals who haven't paid their TV licenses or have had them repossessed. Not a pub I would care to visit... More

A proper pub, good beer, loads of regular customers,plenty of chat and banter, all sports shown (currently the only pub in town with Sky). I've seen the Landlord smile once so he's not that bad! All you could want from a local's boozer.
