We were looking forward to our visit, which was delayed due to Covid19. It was our first time with a tasting menu, and we weren't sure what do expect. We weren't disappointed, the meal was outstanding, the service was excellent, and there was a relaxed ambiance. My only regret was that I was driving and was unable to take advantage of the paired wines. I won't be driving at our next visit. Peace and Loaf is more expensive than your average restaurant, but definitely worth it for the experience. The mixture of flavours, textures and fragrances are not easily forgotten. Thank you to the staff and chef's for a marvelous evening. We'll be back!

Only the taster menu available due to Covid but it was all beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The staff couldn’t do enough to help and were very friendly and attentive. This was the first time I had been out since lockdown, but everything was clean and sanitised and I felt very safe! Love this place even if it is a bit pricey!

Been looking forward to visiting this place for quite a while - the overall experience was good, however a few little things could be improved upon
1. Service was rushed especially at the start
2. Taster menu (we had B) had to many courses, with a few not what you would have expected on a tester menu (seemed as they were trying to pack it out - but no need
3. Pairing drinks were not listed either what was coming or when to expect the next one.

really enjoyed 90% of the food, but a few divisions below the like of House of Tides, Raby Hunt etc, but about the same money

The extra measures put in place made us feel very safe . The staff and the food were amazing , nothing was too much trouble. We liked that the waiter explained all of the courses and gave us details of where the produce had been sourced , it was a lovely touch !

As ever, lunch was a dining experience! The food, service and innovative menu were first class. The flavours are amazing and you can pick out each one without the food being smothered in one strong flavour.

My daughter, who was visiting from London maintains that Peace & Loaf is the best restaurant she has ever visited, anywhere.

The dinner here is one of he the best we have ever had. Yes it is expensive but we are happy to pay for such excellent food and service in a not too noisy environment when it is a special occasion; and in these post Covid 19 times we are happy to pay a bit more. We had the middle menu which was more than enough and all delightful.

From walking in to leaving we were totally at ease. The staff were their usual calm, friendly and efficient selves. The food was exceptional, we had the larger tasting menu with wine flight. Everything was fabulous the presentation and quality and of course the flavours that the kitchen achieve were just superb.
We just had to book again as we left and can’t wait.
Thanks everyone for bringing some normality back to us after months of being able to visit.

we have eat here so many times it’s my favourite place not sure what happened this time re food as 50% was excellent the rest average the meat dish was over cooked and the separate mash dish didn’t make sense it would have approached less courses and maybe more structured dish - the macaroons were amazing and the pudding were both lovely - i think i like it best when there’s a menu you can chose from other than tasting menus as i come often and i’ll have to come less if that’s all that’s on offer - aperol spritz for me and beer my husband had was amazing the team were exceptional and the clean covid provision were brilliant sad i left without feeling the same as all my previous times x x x will defo go back
