“A Good Country Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

Although we live some way from Chelsworth, this is one of our favourite country pubs and we visit it quite regularly.
It has a superb setting in a picturesque village and across from a small river.
In the summer we always eat in the pretty garden, but being Autumn we ate in the atmospheric old bar. Commendably much of the bar is still set out as a pub and has not been packed with dining tables
As always we had reasonably priced and good, if not excellent, food. The real ales are well kept.
Recommended.

I stopped here for a meal, after a day out in Norfolk & Suffolk. I arrived just as the pub was opening at 6pm. As I walked in I was greeted by the bar staff, all very friendly and cheerful.

The pub has a good selection of bitters, and a very nice menu. I choose the Chicken meal, and very nice it was too, for sweet I had Devon apple tart and custard, it was excellent.

The service was excellent, from a very cheerful waitress.

All in all a very nice village pub with plenty of character. I will visit again soon.

A lovely small pub with lots of charm. A good choice of beers and the menu offers good choices from bar food to restaurant food. Open fires add to the atmosphere and you can also bring your dog. Sunday lunchtime is great with snacks provided on the bar.

The Peacock is situated in a stunning little village called Chelsworth, if I am honest I think it has got some great owners that are slowly but surely making a come back for The Peacock! As soon as you walk through the door you are greeted by smiling and friendly staff (at the time the bar person was serving someone, but still acknowledged we had walked in) So onto the food...well it was amazing presentation was good and the flavours all worked well. Hats off to the chef.

If you are looking for a great pub with no bells and whistle's on it then you definitely need to come and visit! Dogs are welcome which is always nice if you have been out walking. I will be going back (already have)!

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent stay here in a beautiful little room.
We fell in love with our room the moment we saw it. Just like the rest of the pub, Room no. 4 has plenty of character and charm. There wasn't a straight wall, or floor, in the place! Although not a huge room, it was a luxurious one. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet at night. Best of all the chef at the pub offers a really good range of choices for breakfast. In fact, all the food we enjoyed at the pub (breakfasts, an evening meal and a sunday lunch) was delicious.
We were lucky enough to be the only guests staying when we were there and we had the place to ourselves, more or less. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Room 4 has lots of period charm
