Took my foodie boyfriend here for the tasting menu for his birthday. It was a fantastic experience, with 11 amazing courses, great service and a brilliant atmosphere. The staff really know a lot about the menu and the food combinations are unexpected but brilliant. Portion sizes were spot on and we managed to polish everything off.

They also very nicely adapted the menu to not include fish for me so that I could enjoy the menu too. We would definitely recommend the tasting menu and you definitely get your money's worth considering that we were there for over 3 hours!

A lunchtime visit to this popular restaurant,was expecting three courses for £25,but it was restaurant week so two courses £20 ,dessert extra these cost more than £5 so not a good deal really.All this aside the food was stunning a treat for the eyes as well as tasting fantastic .All the courses were delightful and every little treat in between.The atmosphere was a little flat maybe due to the fact the staff were not enthusiastic.A great restaurant for a special occasion.

Well I have to admit this is our favourite restaurant and it is walking distance from where we live. Having said that I would probably fly to it if it was in any other city in the world. What makes it so special? Well first, the staff. It is clear they are a team, from the chefs doing their magic in the kitchen to the smiling waitress who has only been working their two days but has clearly had expert encouragement and training. The place runs like clockwork. Being able to see into the kitchen you can witness the careful preparation of food. Works of art on stylish local pottery made plates are delivered to tables at regular intervals. Don’t expect to be merely fed here. The food is a visual feast with quirky touches and attention to detail. The menu offers choices but in and amongst you will sample extra courses reminiscent of the best tasting menu but without the pomp and price. For those of us who are frequent diners here, these extra dishes change with the seasons so nobody gets bored and they show case the chefs skills beautifully. Lastly it’s not just Dave Coulson in the kitchen although he is the driving force. I have eaten at peace and loaf on his days off and the kitchen still produces top quality food with all Dave’s flair. If you want to leave feeling so full you could burst this is not the restaurant for you, if you want to experience a culinary journey it is.

This was not the first time we had eaten here and once again Peace and Loaf provided us with an exceptional meal.

Presentation, quality and service were flawless

We started with raw steak pie and Kems parsnips, whilst these were being prepared complimentary and beautifully presented "treats" arrived, fresh bread with whipped dripping, salmon fish cakes, sweet potato macarons and a ham hock croquette - all of which were just delicious.

Mains were pork belly with smoked eel and a red mullet with shrimp risotto - again fabulous and were preceded by another "treat" - a miniature cottage pie. The cottage pie was exquisite.

Dessert of tangerine and Rhubarb - divine

The food here, is of the quality that when the first forkful hits your mouth, you close your eyes and savour the flavour

If you haven't booked a table yet ..... do
You won't regret it
