On the whole an ok experience, friendly staff and the food was acceptable. The service was very slow even though at one point there were only 6/7 customers. I waited 10mins for my coffee after reminding the waitress. We waited ages for the bill and had to ask 3 times each time being told it was on its way. It’s a nice place with good food but not very efficient waiting staff that really let it down.
I ordered a Fish finger sandwich which was actually fish goujons, with a lot more bread than filling.

Really lovely restaurant with great service. I think that it could be a little more relaxed with more time between courses. We booked for 8 and were out in an hour and 5 mins.....please dont rush good food. We did mention that one of the dishes ordered contained shellfish which was not in the meal description....the complaint was acknowledged and a couple of drinks in apology was sufficient....I think its a great place to eat, with fresh limited menu...so check before you go.

My husband and I spent a lovely evening at the Peppermill. The food was excellent and well presented, with enough, but not too much, choice and variation. The service was excellent, and the waiter very friendly and helpful.

We would recommend this restaurant to anyone living in, or visiting, Devizes.

Service was, as always, great but the menu was very disappointing this visit and paid the same price for a brisket burger as a vegarian stack burger which was a few slices of veg in a bun and was very average. Such a shame the menu has changed so much.

Dined for my wedding anniversary if it wasn't that fact that we won a £50 voucher we would not have gone.
Starters. Pulled pork tasted more like cold spam sour dough bread was toasted so it was too hard to chew, soup of the day way lovely tasting but no crusty bread even the sour dough wouldn't soft up.
Main. Both flat iron and sirloin steaks were tuff as boots and when we repeated every course no salad it means no salad.
Asked for a glass of tap water with a slice of lime waiter comes back with a large refrigerated bottle of water and a glass with lemon in it only wanted to swill the steak down and if that was there tap water why charge nearly £3 for it and the waiter asked if I wanted ice in the glass, I said no can't do cold that's why I asked for tap water stupid
The only good thing was the pudding and I think that was microwaved. So I have been told they have changed chefs well all I can say change back. It wasn't that busy so no excuses.
Won't be dinning there again. Sorry

Food OK but service painfully slow. Everyone very pleasant so can't fault the welcome or how friendly staff were but they were just very slow and needed reminding re drinks, jug of water etc. Took 30mins for drinks to arrive. It was not busy and I can honestly see no reason why they were so inefficient. I could see the kitchen and the fault did not lie there. Food was tasty but noted that the Pan Fried Halibut with saffron mash with a tomato concasse with a creamy leek sauce was actually served on a bed of mussels - this should have been mentioned on the menu. I know that not all ingredients are mentioned on a menu description but shell on mussels is a pretty big ingredient that should have been included. Not everyone likes them and there are some that eat fish but have shellfish allergies. We were left unattended with a dessert menu for so long that we decided to go for the bill instead of ordering a dessert when someone finally arrived.

A very enjoyable evening. The first table allocated was poorly lit and in traffic, so we were grateful for a transfer to a much better table. The Cotes du Rhone was rather good. Service was excellent and made the evening. Thank you.

Having very much enjoyed dinner here a few months ago, we were sure of another good experience. However, lunch was disappointing. Service was slow ( and please, please stop saying "not a problem" after every request. Why should it be a problem?) the menu was uninspiring and the flatbread was burnt, to mention just a few things. We didn't feel cherished as customers.

We visited The Peppermill in February and it was exceptional - outstanding food and service. We went on 30-Jul for my wife's birthday, and whilst the food was again outstanding (though my lamb was a tad over-cooked) the service was extremely slow. We sat down at 7.30pm, ordered drinks, starters and mains, and our main courses arrived at 9.05pm. By this time both my wife and daughter were past hungry and therefore left most of their main. The place was busy, with a party of fourteen at the bar when we arrived, but those size of groups don't turn-up on spec, so it was sad the staff and kitchen just couldn't cope and hadn't staffed accordingly. On paying, I explained that due to poor service there would be no tip, and my wife had a word separately on leaving, to express our disappointment. The Peppermill is the best restaurant in Devizes, but this has put us off going again.

My partner and I came here for one of our date nights recently.
The staff were very lovely and welcoming and made us feel very special. The restaurant layout itself is very pretty and has a lovely atmosphere.
My only suggestion would be that perhaps tables for 2 could maybe be positioned not opposite one another, but next to each other? So that couples have a choice of what table they'd like?
The food was INCREDIBLE and even when it was busy, it wasn't unpleasantly loud.
We had a lovely evening thanks to your incredible staff.

I gave three restaurant choices to new friends and they chose The Peppermill. We all had two courses and a bottle of wine. A jug of tap water was offered. We were all impressed with the menu, not huge but interesting. And the fact that in this very hot weather, there was air conditioning! A comfortable atmosphere. We visited early on a Saturday evening and it wasn't busy, but gradually filled up. I would say by the end of our time there, 9.30pm, it was gently buzzing. I would love to have given it 5 stars all round, but I chose a cod dish with mussels and most of them were closed up, so I couldn't eat them! Just bad luck some might say, but I was a bit disappointed with that. Otherwise, it was a very nice evening and we would go back again.

We stopped overnight in the hotel & booked a table for dinner. We both had steaks which were tender & very tasty & cooked to order. They had an extensive wine list & my after dinner brandy coffee was one of the best I've had. The service & attention was faultless. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
