2nd time here , 2nd fantastic food experience Had the middle tasting menu , wow , was so pleased to get to the end otherwise might have had to actually stop Just the right amount of sweet delights at the end . Each course was mouthwatering . Fantastic experience again Even popped to the Pie hatch for takeaway pie for today . What a very pleasant young man , can’t wait to try

Very good food. Obviously an expensive option for an evening out, but the portion sizes are good compared to other tasting menus that are out there. We had the 15 course menu and were truly stuffed by the end! Money well spent for a special occasion.

Dave and the team at Peace & Loaf make one of the best dining experiences I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. The front of house team are friendly and attentive while the quality and ingenuity of the food is exceptional. Always something new but always some beloved favourites.
We look forward to our next evening at Peace & Loaf.

As always fantastic meal. David and his team are fantastic, great service, outstanding food. Which was the best course on Menu B....we are still debating, for me it was scallops with chicken pie gravy......for wine we always have the Alberino.

Not as good as the reviews very mixed presentation was poor the portions were to small to enjoy

Less number of courses would have been better and slightly larger portions

Yes I know it was a tasting menu but still one month full and it was gone there was no second chance to enjoy the food

The pairing wines were great

Maybe just not my cup of tea

So much work has gone into the preparation of the food. And takeing the time to collect fliwers from the allotment The skill that’s involved in this type of menu is hard to find this this day and age. Also the wine pairing which we didn’t have looked fantastic value I opted for the Malbec which was beautiful The prices aren’t your everyday eating out prices. But the effort and time that has gone into everything on the menu speek a volumes.
My only criticism is the downstairs toilet needs a bright bulb and painted in a lighter colour with a plant or flowers. But it wasn’t doing any harm.

Peace and loaf has been my favourite restaurant for a long long time. Unfortunately the move a taster menu seems like a step in the wrong direction. I went to peace and loaf for the dining experience and the extremely good food. Now it's a number of course's chucked at you most I didn't enjoy some you may like some you may not.....where is the tripple cooked chips and beef tartre ....I'm very sad

Even for a tasting menu the portions were tiny. Having said that, the bahn mi, the Gordal, the salmon and the rhubarb tart were delicious. The meat based courses were a little too greasy for our taste. Overall we didn’t think it represented value for the price tag of £84 for two.

A new experience. Tasting menu was excellent. Lunchtime booking, so unfortunately unable to participate in drinks pairing. This was our first visit to P & L. From entering the restaurant we were impressed. Everything was smooth organised and controlled. The staff was amazing. They were friendly, welcoming and really knowledgeable when it came to advising the ingredients of each course. The food was superb. For the first time ever the various flavours of dishes came through to excite the palate. Small is beautiful. When the full menu returns, so will we. Thank you P & L for an unbelievable experience.

We ate here last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was simply gorgeous, so many different flavours to try and the staff explained each course perfectly. The service really was fantastic, the staff were really friendly and we were made to feel welcome the moment we walked through the door.
