All round brilliance. This is a restaurant for special occasions and the price reflects that, but it is worth the visit and is highly recommended. The food is perfect and the service lives up to the same standard. Fine dining and great for a date.

As ever the food was great and the staff very helpful and friendly. One little request is to consider giving an amuse Boucher other than bread and dropping. The bread is lovely but the dripping is not flavoursome. Your other nibbles are gorgeous.

Another First Class meal from the Early Evening set menu which at £30 is good value when you include all the little extras before and in etween courses.
Service was very friendly and the waiting staff knew how to explain what each choice contained clearly.

A real find for us foodies and service and ambience were perfect too. We ate from the pre-7pm set menu and didn't feel compromised at all. That's quite important as the a la carte menu would be budget-busting for us but we will definitely return after such a positive experience.

Service was very friendly, the waiter was chatty and very helpful. Food was left on the pass for a long time after plating up so arrived, at best, luke warm. Gravy had to be returned as the top inch of the jug was liquid fat. Meat was well cooked and very tasty.
Overall it was OK but considering the price, it was disappointing.

We ate on Monday lunchtime and ordered from the a la carte, firstly the food is amazing, from the presentation to the flavours and worth the visit.
The service was ok but could improve.
Maitre’d was informed that the white wine was too cold (yes!, it actual can be and needed to be 3 degrees warmer for the taste to be appreciated and the aromas not to be masked.) however, he still placed it in the wine cooler!
I was sat facing the fire exit door which had two owl dirty door draft excluders and the brown paint was peeling away from the wall not the most picturesque view!
Drinks were replenished and then they weren’t, satisfaction was asked in the main course but not at any other time.
We had used our starter cutlery with the amuse bouche and had to ask for it to be replenished.
Sparkling bottle of water we had finished however no offer of replenishment until main course and they had been at the table three times.
There is no engaging conversation or any questions asked solely a robotic service. Personally, I would place candles on the table for evening service giving more room.
Had to ask for coffees and digestif !
Coffee was bitter and a little biscotti would have been appreciated to be served along side.
No attention to detail and if the food wasn’t so amazing you would leave and not recommend to others at a bill of £162 service should come hand in hand it’s not horrendous and it’s not the worse but a little bit more and this would be amazing.
If I’m asked what I thought I would reply food amazing but service needs more attention.
I Understand that service can be too attentive but the balance has to be equal.

We went to Peace and Loaf while away for the weekend in Newcastle. Had one of the best meals I have had all year, we will definitely return. It is expensive, but well worth it. Great staff, great food.

Tries too hard. Food was really poor, especially for the price. Actually, forget the price, the food was really poor. The "canapés" were too large and over powered everything else. The food as well presented but pretentious and the flavours either bland (the mini chicken parmo ... really .. it is not hard to make sure there is some flavour of cheese ..), or confused. I would not go back.

Rollo's in Edinburgh does way better for similar money.

Hedone in Chiswick is more expensive, but definitely worth it.

Walter & Benjamin in Munich does a lot better for less ... and is in Munich :)

This is the second time I've been to Peace and Loaf, and both times have been exceptional. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Food was mostly exceptional- lamb was tough though hence 4/5. Had a great night, staff were fantastic. Only disappointment was that it was far too fast. Plates cleared as soon as we'd finished. Next courses arrived immediately. Shame as the food was beautiful and staff excellent.
Will definitely be back. Would book an earlier table though and ask for a little more relaxed pace.

I was given a voucher as a birthday present from my daughter as we've always wanted to come hear.
We had an early booking 17.30 but the place still had a lot of other diners in,the attention to detail frpm the waiters and waitresses couldn't be faulted, each serving was described to us even the little appetizers in between courses.
Every dish we had was perfect, the portions weren't huge but satisfying.
We would definitely recommend the Peace & Loaf.

We’ve eaten here frequently since we discovered P&L last year. Sunday lunch today was perfect in every way and from first bite until last. We both chose roast beef for our main course and the meat was probably the best we have ever eaten anywhere; and we eat out frequently...
