I had high expectations of The Peacock Inn but it did not live up to the recomendations of others. I found my dinner a real mixed bag some good, in part pretentious and some bits lousy.
I had the Hamachi starter which was good and the tuna rare as I like it. I had then the Scallops which were grossly over-cooked and over seasoned. Lastly, I had the surf n turf, the key ingredients of lobster & steak were good but cast adrift a sea of gloopy pasta. How anyone could see this combination with pasta could work is beyond me. The only way that I could eat the lobster and steak was putting onto a side plate. We missed out on a dessert. The settings here are beautiful within an historic house but maybe that is what people come for.
We also stayed in the hotel and liked it and have given the hotel a seperate more favourable review.

Great ambience, service was good not great. Staff was friendly.
Have had very good meals here in the past.
Pat was very helpful.
Had the XMaS Eve tasting menu. The first course of Mushroom Risotto was cold firstly and mediocre overall.
The main course was very good, desserts were average.
The wine recommendation was very good and price value good.
At the end of the day I come to Peacock Inn for it's neighborhood charm and special occasions.
Food quality and price for the quality was average at best.

Our service was excellent! We were able to talk and relax between courses and never felt rushed. Food was delicious. A great experience.

I always enjoy dining here every few weeks; the food this evening was as outstanding as I've had on all previous occasions. The strip loin of bison was quite a treat.

What a night! Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, and I couldn't have chosen a better place. My wife arrived first and surprised me with a bottle of our favorite champagne, which was served just as we were being seated. The food was exquisite, and Mike took great care of us throughout the evening. When I think of places to dine on a special occasion, there's only one place: The Peacock Inn.

This was our third time to the peacock in and they once again did not disappoint. The food and the service were Exquisite as you would expect because pricing is not inexpensive. Well worth the money a great value for a special occasion.

We were there for brunch, which is a two course, fixed price menu. The restaurant is in a beautiful old building with spacious dining rooms and cozy seating. The interesting menu was generally well executed. The servers were courteous but not attentive to our needs until asked. We had to flag the waiter down to take our order, bring the main courses, and take drink orders when the meal finally came. The two course brunch took 3 hours. The food was attractively plated but all was room temperature, even dishes that should have been hot. The waiter seemed to be the only waiter in the restaurant. The 20% gratuity on the bill did not reflect the quality of the service. Coffee or tea should be included in the prix fixe.

Ate here while visiting our daughter. Took her and her roommate to dinner. Food was excellent. Service was very good but not intrusive.
Nice wine list.
