Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Housed in an expansive converted barn, Peacock Farm is great for any occasion. With intimate tables perfect for couples and large spaces that can accommodate party banqueting, this popular venue is a welcoming haven.
The seasonal menu is extensive enough to satisfy all tastes. We opted to start with a mixed sharing platter comprising lamb kofte, hummus, baba ganoush, calamari, falafel and tzatziki. The variety of tastes and textures were perfectly matched, and provided a great opening to the meal. Next came a succulent chicken Caesar burger made with chargrilled chicken breast stacked with plenty of bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, Caesar mayo and salad, all served in a brioche bun. The burger itself had a wonderful smoky flavour, and the accompanying triple-cooked chips were a delight. My companion’s Moroccan-style lamb tagine was a treat for all the senses, and came with pickled red onion and toasted pitta bread.
To round things off we indulged in two sumptuous puddings. The oaty crumble was packed with chunky apple and beer-soaked sultanas, enhanced by an out-of-this-world salted toffee and Badger Beer sauce. My partner’s sticky toffee and rum sponge was equally decadent. The light, moist sponge with crunchy sweet topping was beautiful, and as if that wasn’t enough, it was served with rum and raisin ice cream and an oat crumb. Peacock Farm also hosts regular open mic nights and quiz nights – the perfect excuse for an evening out accompanied by top-notch food and drink.
