Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Between the large barn-conversion interior and the surrounding gardens, Peacock Farm can seat almost 300 diners. Inside, the farmhouse-chic decor highlights the exposed oak beams and panelling, contrasting smartly with the azure blue walls to create a homely and spacious setting; an impression further enhanced by the collections of books and antique memorabilia lining the walls.
Welcoming families and couples of all ages, the menu is alight with variation, enticing a wide array of people through the doors. British favourites are championed on the menu, all at exceptional prices for the high quality of ingredients. Our starter was delicious, a classic prawn cocktail for me and two flavoursome minced lamb skewers accompanied by a vibrant salad for my companion. Our mains consisted of traditional fare at its very best – chicken and bacon Cobb salad replete with crisp, fresh vegetables, and a selection of mini classic pies. After extensive testing we decided the steak and ale was our favourite, making good use of the Badger cask beer available on the premises; but there were certainly no weak choices among them.
The dessert menu was extensive, and we had no trouble deciding to share a cherry pie. Arriving with a side of Salcombe Dairy Devon ice cream, we were knocked back by the presentation, and the creamy ice cream proved a great finish to the meal.
