Changes at the Peacock

No doubt over the last few months you have been wondering what is happening at the Peacock.  Well, hopefully by the middle of November the sale will be signed and sealed and we shall be ensconced in our new village life, new home and new business.

Not wanting to tempt fate we will leave our introductions until the deal is finalised, but we would like to share our aspirations with you all.  It has taken us over a year to find our ideal village and pub.  Agents have been tearing their hair out with our ever growing list of requirements.  The Peacock ticked most of the boxes on our wish list and those that it didn’t were things we can live with or without or change!  We think we have found our ideal village and pub and we hope you will find us your ideal friendly local.

Having been in the catering, hospitality and customer services industries for more years than we like to admit to, we have pooled our experience and resources to create a life style we want and to bring our idea of hospitality to you.  We love food, we have a passion for fresh local ingredients simply prepared and cooked; unpretentious, fresh and vibrant.  Choose from great steaks, locally sourced meat and game, fresh fish and lots of seasonal vegetables.  We aim to offer you great value for money.  We’re not a “Gastro Pub”.  We aim to be a Pub where you can come and relax and enjoy  great beer, ales and wines in tip top condition, accompanied by food, in the bar, in the restaurant, or outside (weather permitting) snacks, meals or banquets the choice is yours.  Being a Pub the most important thing is to offer you a great choice of drinks.  We have decided to continue to have Ciders, Beers and Lagers from the Carlsberg stable, as we can offer you great choice especially real ales, we will still have guest ales from local breweries and we would like to know your opinions on what you want. Our wine list will be revised with a tempting selection of house wines selling at under £10 a bottle.  As well as a range of non alcoholic drinks we shall be serving bean to cup freshly brewed coffees, Lattes, Cappuccinos, espresso, a selection of blended teas and infusions etc all to be enjoyed with a slice of  home made cake or  pastries.

Some changes will be implemented immediately, we shall be open 7 days a week, last orders for food will be extended to 9.30 p.m. Monday to Saturday, later by arrangement.  We are introducing a “Roast of the day” freshly cooked and carved at the table.  Sunday lunch will be available from 12 noon to 8 p.m. comprising a delicious cold starter table or home made soup, followed by a choice of freshly cooked roast meats, fish dish of the day or vegetarian choices.  Sweets are all home made and included favourites such as Zesty Lemon Bread and Butter Pudding, Treacle Tart, Chocolate Fondant, Crème Brulée, Tarte Citron, sticky toffee pudding with Bushmill's toffee sauce.  And so the list goes on.  From the Bar Menu you can choose home made pork pie served with chutneys and pickles, club sandwiches, traditional steamed steak and kidney pudding and great steaks, T Bones, Sirloins, Ribs, Mixed grills and all day breakfasts.

We hope to be moving in by mid November and look forward to meeting you all; pop in for coffee or a drink.  We will be taking bookings for Christmas, including a tempting Christmas Day Menu, Boxing Day Lunch, New Years Eve Party and New Years Day Lunch.  Look out for leaflets with our special opening offers and our official opening party to meet you all and for you to meet us and sample our style of hospitality.
