“Very disappointed”

Written on: 04/08/2013 by chrissy125 (1 review written)

Just had lunch, 4th August 2013.We both had steak and was not given steak knives, when asked if we would like anything else I asked for butter, as I had jacket potato, which never arrived and my husband had the stilton sauce which had something very long and gunky in it. The waiter said it was probably some unmelted cheese but couldn't be sure. The food was nothing special and definitely not worth the price. The service leaves a lot to be desired either very slow or none existent… Read Full Review

Arrived at 1430 on a sunday, took an HOUR for our main (roast dinner and a salad) to be served, whilst tables around us (who arrived later) were served theirs. Waited 10 minutes for the accompanying vegetables before having to ASK for them Come dessert, ordering a FIVE layer Carrot cake, it arrived and was 20 minutes later but only THREE layers with the bottom obviously having been broken off...when I enquired, I was told they would get me a fresh one... 10 minutes later (the husband had… Read Full Review

“Worst Sunday Roast Ever Had”

Written on: 23/12/2012 by Tewy (1 review written)

Went for a Christmas meal with others, partner and I had roast beef meal with all of the trimmings. Meat was average, (sliced not carved) mash potatoes were instant and everything else from a packet. Waitress asked if all was ok and I said no - that's as far as it went. I would get far better at a Wetherspoons. It goes without saying that I would not dream of setting foot in the place again… Read Full Review

“Disgusting - never again”

Written on: 29/11/2012

We have often had some lovely meals at the Peacock in the past, so were keen to try it again under the new management - Big mistake. Initially we were quite impressed with the changes until we ordered our meals. I wished to order the sea-bass, one of my favourites but noticed it came with a rosotto which I don't really like, so requested some dauphinoise potatoes, which were also included with my husbands meal so didn't think it would be a problem. After a while our waiter informed me the chef… Read Full Review

“Not as good as The Dog and Duck”

Written on: 02/11/2012

We visited on a Thursday evening and found that although there were a few people drinking, not many were eating. The decor is similar to the sister pub in Old Clipstone and the menu is identical. My friend & I both ordered the steak and ale pie with homemade chips, as it is a favourite of ours at the Dog and Duck. What a disappointment it was! it arrived less than 5 minutes after ordering. My pie was crusty to one side of the wedge, as if it had been cut for hours. It was barely warm but… Read Full Review

“Sunday lunch review”

Written on: 07/10/2012

Arrived at Peacock for Sunday lunch booking 3.00pm. All the starters were fine,but when it came to main courses,different story! The pie my partner got was hard and dry, I would have sent it back, but he didnt want to upset day by doing so. The steaks we ordered were supposed to be med rare, what a joke, no blood on show,they were more like well done, which made them dry and tasteless.Because a comment was made regarding the pie, the waitress, who was clearly not in good humour!never came back… Read Full Review

“Disappointing”

Written on: 26/08/2012

This was recommended by a friend who said it was excellent. lovely pub and seated straight away on arrival. However, drinks took over 15 minutes to arrive after ordering yet the bar was empty so would have been better to go to the bar ourselves. Although realised later this wasn't the done thing despite the waiting staff being overly busy. Was asked if we were ready to order food and asked them to give us another minute; took another 10-15 minutes for someone to come back. We ordered a roast… Read Full Review

“Quality!”

Written on: 16/05/2012

So we're new to the area (Shirland) and have been trying some of the local eateries recently namely The Greyhound (generic pub rubbish), The White Bear (over priced and over hyped don't believe the reviews quaint it is value it isn't!) and we avoided The Peacock due to the reviews we'd seen which were less than impressive however when the Mrs came home from a Hen do and I'd returned from a lads weekend neither of us could be bothered to cook so we thought we'd give it a shot! We were welcomed… Read Full Review

“New Menu, New Makeover April 2012”

This time we were pleased to see the new owners (Same as Hurt Arms, Ambergate) had taken over and changed the menu and are refurbishing next week, can't wait to see the results. It was very busy today and the staff were friendly and helpful, the food is gastro/pub style with good portions… Read Full Review

“Staff problems here!”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by CherylGrx (1 review written)

Lunch, 6/03/12. Cod in batter & chips - cod overcooked, almost burnt, fish very dry. Chips undercooked, still solid. (NB the Lasagne, salad, garlic bread meal was excellent.) Staff failed to check meals OK. Our complaint about the fish & chip meals was met with "I'll tell the chef," no apology whatsoever. "Sorry," would have been appreciated. Needless to say, we won't be returning… Read Full Review

“Disappointing Sunday lunch”

Written on: 17/02/2012

11of us went for Sunday lunch 12th feb - what a shambles the starters were disappointing and expensive when the main course was served (eventually after about 1 hour) we were served with pork instead of turkey. When we questioned this we were told that we had defiantly been served turkey but I am sorry I do know the difference and it was defiantly pork. The rest of the meal was average the service poor and the staff had a very bad attitude .when we were presented with the bill it came with a… Read Full Review

We waited about 30mins for it to be served ,it was beautifully presented and tasted delicious .By the time we left the place was quite busy.

Written on: 07/01/2012 by Charlie1530 (1 review written)

First of all Christmas decorations and music was on with Xmas napkins. All staff looke like they couldnt be bothered and the restaurant was freezing cold. I had a burger and without over exaggerating t was absolutely vile the burger tasted like a frozen burger that had been cooked cooled down and re heated back up the cheese on it had definatly been microwaved. The bin was just a basic cob and was soggy. The chips it was served with however were very nice and did eat those. Nobody came to check… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2011

We have being going to Oakerthorpe regualry over the last 3-4 years and continued to go slightly less through the transition period. We have very rarely being disappointed until the last few weeks, the old staff were lovely helpful and listened to your comments, the new young staff dont seem to know what to do and are quite ignorant. Our last meal was a couple of weeks ago and haven't bothered since because the last couple of times the food has been cold and my dessert was still frozen I… Read Full Review
