Had the most kind waitresses who didn’t treat us any differently especially as we were a younger group of people who usually get treated a lot differently to others, would highly recommend this place to others.

The place is wonderful and the atmosphere but the food just didn't live up to expectation. I ordered a Rib Eye steak medium-rare - but it arrived 'blue' the mushrooms were a bit cremated along with the chips which were overcooked and the salad was limp and lifeless. So disappointing, not very good and will not be going back. The owners have clearly spent a lot of money of upgrading the hotel part and the outside space unfortunately this didn't translate into their food, such a shame I was so excited to go.

Overall, a nice lunch outside, but the stools were too high for 2 people in our party, one of which was blind. Two people very kindly offered us their seats which were much lower than the stools. With this in mind, I would have to request we book specific seats outside to avoid this happening again. The other person with us is recovering from hip surgery and would have found getting up onto the stools very difficult. Just something to consider possibly. Staff were lovely, really friendly and helpful. The outside area is very nice, it was just the high stools that were a problem for us. Great food as always, and of course we will be back!

Beautiful courtyard, we were lucky with weather so that helped. Very busy but service was good, food was good - (very little vegan options). A little bit pricey for what we had but nevertheless a lovely lunch.

From the few moments before we arrived, (on the phone getting final directions from the owner), to checking in, eating in and everything else this was an excellent experience. The food and wine were thoroughly enjoyed. Staff very attentive and the open-kitchen shows a level of confidence. Thanks to all at The Peppermill.

So much improved. Our first inside visit for at least a couple of years, the food has always been excellent, but now the level of prompt, knowledgeable and friendly service matches it. One my party choose the vegetarian option. With only one slice of aubergine, we felt the portion was small, but when asked, another slice was promptly delivered. All 3 courses were beautifully presented and full of flavour.

For the quality of food, we felt the price was fair, with no hidden extras to pay for as vegetables were all included in the price of the main course. They also were willing to be flexible with some alternative requests when choosing our desserts.

We would have no hesitation in recommending and making a return visit, as the menu changes frequently, unlike some establishments.

Great food, lovely atmosphere.

Nice staff who were helpful, but we didn’t appreciate being told 15 minutes before that our table was needed in a two hour window & they had to check if we were ‘allowed’ dessert. We hadn’t been informed about this at the start and considering they wanted us out after 2 hours, service was at times quite leisurely.

Just needs tightening up the systems over how long tables are for & better communication. Apart from that, great place to go.

We had a great evening at The Peppermill. The food was lovely, well presented and tasted amazing. We also liked that the kitchen was open so you could see the chefs working. The staff were really nice and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Brilliant wine list. We live in North Bristol and would definitely come back.

Made to feel welcome from the minute we entered. Service was good and not intrusive. Food was excellent. Wine was very good and a very nice discount added as the particular wine requested was not available. Wonderful lunchtime experience.

I have to say that the food was amazing, both starters set the taste buds going, my celeriac soup was great. The mains of lamb shank, for my partner and the halibut for me were outstanding. Special mention from me though for the halibut, it was really good.
Great evening, thank you......

We eat at the Peppermill several times each year and love it: in our experience the staff are always brilliant, courteous, attentive and affable, the menu never fails to delight/entice and the price while on the higher side for some budgets is well worth the quality of food and service. We love it and will definitely be back again.
And to maintain their very high standards while applying COVID restrictions and keeping their customers safe speaks volumes for their professionalism.

This isn't a negative review, its just OK! nothing outstanding. we went for the Sunday roast. the beef was lovely, but the whole meal was cold. the plate was sparse, with one small carrot and one small parsnip, 2 roast potatoes, and a small piece of kale. However the purple cabbage was good. I have to say that i last went a year ago and the food then was spectacular, now its just OK! so i am afraid the prices do not match the expectation.

Lovely food and the table service was polite. The wait was far too long for food. It took over an hour between starter and mains. 8.00 pm table and it was well after 9:00 before the mains arrived. Two people who didn’t have starters were very hungry. They did say when we arrived the service was slow. But they didn't say that long or give any updates during the wait. We had to keep finding a waitress to get more drinks whilst we waited too. So value for money as an overall dining experience was very poor. I would fo back as it was just a bad night for them.
