We enjoyed a wonderful evening at The Peppermill, which had a lovely ambiance. I ordered the halibut, an unusual combination of foods that worked amazingly together. The egg was incredible! Everyone else ordered steak and it was outstanding. We will definitely return.

Really enjoyed our food. The service was very good. Disappointed in the Sauvignon Blanc choice so had Gin instead. The barman knew what he was talking about. Unfortunately we were not able to order coffees at 9.45 due the machine being switched off which was a little odd when we weren't the only ones left.

We did arrive 15mins late due to traffic and was told the kitchen was closed. We were made to feel awkward due to this and pre warned we might not eat because of this. The waiter share they would take our order immediately or not at all. The order was taken we thanked the waiter.
Soup was delivered in 15mins then we were asked if we would like a drink.
Main arrive later and the food was good.
No one checked back with us we were just left, plates were cleared after an hour.
We were not asked if we wanted dessert and other tables were eating dessert.
Ignored for a further 30 mins, without drinks.
I had to ask for the bill.
Was contemplating getting up and walking out, to see if the noticed us!
Poor service and killed the mood on Christmas eve. Felt unimportant and insignificant in the establishment.
Will never return

Food was amazing but disappointed by the service. We had to wait a while to be offered our first drink and no one asked us if we were happy with our meal.

Had a beautifully cooked and presented lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. Including a complementary glass of prosecco for the birthday girl. The service was impeccable. Thanks for a lovely meal.

The food and service were immaculate, but the noise level from the next table was absolutely appalling. They drove us to an empty table next to the door, and they drove everybody else out of the restaurant. I think that the staff should have done something about this
Thanks

Usual great service and lovely meals. Thursday was fish night specials and the John Dory with risotto was really lovely as was the pork chop. I felt a bit let down by my choice of dessert, which was a pumpkin and seed ‘crumble’. But when it arrived there was a dollop of mashed up pumpkin with a big handful of mixed seeds on top. It could have benefited so much from a bit more finesse and perhaps some mascarpone or cream? However the other two puddings were delicious so I shared them. Altogether a very good evening and I’m sure I’ll be back again soon as it’s a favourite - but I won’t have that pudding again 🤭

Booked a table for lunch with my elderly mother. Really friendly staff and accessible for someone with a walking stick. We had the sandwiches which were excellent with fries. A little pricey but you got what you paid for. Nice decor and comfortable chairs. Really good coffee. Loos were 5 star too!

Food was mostly delicious although the rhubarb in the creme brûlée was a little undercooked for my liking. Moules for starters were delicious although would have been better served with bread not frites. Main courses of pork and lamb delicious and the most amazing mashed potato! Service was friendly although a little slow at times. Overall very nice and we’ll be back!

My husbands and I are regulars at the Peppermill and the food is consistently delicious. I usually have mussels for starter and a fillet of cod or hake for main, my husband has soup and steak, and they are always cooked exactly how we request. Very friendly service always happy to advise. Owner Phil stocks some really good bottles of wine on the shelf which you can buy and have with your dinner for a flat corkage fee, so ask him for his recommendation if he’s in! You won’t regret it ☺️

We met up as a group of friends for lunch and had a lovely time. The restaurant was busy but there is enough space around tables not to feel overheard and it is nice to see in to the open kitchen. Our food and drink orders were taken promptly and the food was served amazingly quickly. All the food was delicious and only narrowly missed scoring 5 stars for the following reasons - the mayo dressing on the Caesar Salad was applied a little heavy-handedly - it would be nicer to serve some in a tiny jug to allow the customer to add as much as desired. I had the steak sandwich - perfectly cooked steak and chips. However the bread for the sandwich was doorstop thick. It may have been less stodgy & soggy and more attractive, if it was served as an open sandwich with the tasty horseradish sauce drizzled over the top.
Minor issues in what was a most enjoyable few hours and I will definitely return.

The Peppermill is a really good restaurant and it was lovely to eat at a place that offered a wide range of choices. I feel a bit guilty not giving this restaurant five stars because it was really good but I have decided to limit the number of "outstanding" ratings I give.

My husband and nephew had a roast dinner on Sunday that was huge and they both enjoyed it very much, one having beef and the other pork. I don’t eat meat so was unable to have the roast, which really did look delicious, but was equally happy with my dinner of sea bream and new potatoes, which was cooked to perfection. We were all too full for dessert but thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was very good and so was the price. We would definitely eat there again.

What a beautiful restaurant! From the attractive decor to the helpful and friendly staff to the fantastic food, everything was perfect! Definitely the best meal I have eaten for some time. All the food was imaginative and beautifully cooked by a chef who cares what he is cooking. The wine list was pretty good too!

Nice pleasant atmosphere for a drink and meal. Service extremely good. Our food was a bit of a let down but meat can be a bit uncooperative sometimes. A bit pricey and choice a bit limited. Would recommend though. We had a lovely evening.

We arrived a few minutes before our booked time, which was easily arranged via the website. After being shown to our table our order for drinks was quickly taken and menus left. We had already made up our mind after viewing the website menus and our choices given to the waiter bringing our drinks.
The food was excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending The Pepper Mill to anyone visiting Devizes.

The service at the bar when we arrived wasn't great. the girl that served us got halfway through pouring our drinks and left them on the back of the bar and forgot about us. It was only when I reminded her we were there that she finished our order.
The food itself was very very nice, we decided not to stay for dessert and coffee as the noise coming from a party of 8 sat close by was unbearable. As a result we went to a different bar to finish our evening.

Our first time here, service lovely, the place is really nice and we felt very comfortable. The kitchen is open at the back of the building and it's good to see Chefs at work. Remarkably quiet for being so close. We both had rib-eye steak, deciding that chips were going to be too filling I had salad and other half had new potatoes and veg. Sticky toffee pud and rhubarb creme brûlée were both lovely, the steaks were very tasty and there is an extensive wine list.
Really pleased, we had a great time and will be going back.
