The assiette of pork was amazing. The pork was so soft and delicious and the mash potato, creamy. The black pudding crumbs, burnt apple puree and fresh vegetables complemented it extremely well. The flat ironed steak was cooked perfectly and the peppercorn sauce was excellent.

I would not hesitate to recommend both dishes.

The staff were friendly and professional and not intrusive!

Greeted by a friendly member of staff and taken to our table. The menu was brought and our drinks requests were taken. The service from then on was slick and the food was tasty. I will be going back to sample more of the menu.

Ordered a £22 Lamb Dish and I got three small prices of expensive lamb on a load of green veg and one potato cut in half. changed the dish but then started eating at 10pm after my friends had finished theirs! As a regular patron on the PM I was disappointed and spoke to Lauren the Manager who did apologise (she is lovely by the way) but I was offered no discount off my bill or any apology at the time so I was not happy and when the bill is almost £200 it’s just nit on

I was looking forward to the meal as had eaten here before and really enjoyed it. Sadly the whole experience was average and disappointing. We had a discount on the burger as it was dry. Nothing special about the meals at all. Strawberry pavlova was a deconstructed pavlova with small crop meringues unlike the soft chewy meringue usually within a pavlova. Supposed to have clotted cream but had coconut cream instead which was advertised on another dessert. All in all overpriced and very disappointing. Would not book again. The music was very odd too for a restaurant and did not match the environment. Average x

Fabulous food and service as usual - The Peppermill remains as one of our favourite restaurants in the area. The noise level felt quite high though, we struggled to hear each other across the table at times - maybe some soft furnishings would help absorb some sound? We were slightly disappointed that the main fish courses all had meat as part of them so unsuited to a pescatarian diet. But other than that all fab as normal - the vegan chocolate torte was exceptional!

We are lucky to live within walking distance of The Peppermill so being our wedding anniversary it was the place to go for dinner. The food and service as always was friendly and professional.

One of our party was gluten free. The menu lacks clarity about which dishes are suitable, though the waitress was extremely helpful and the chef put together a very good meal off menu.

Had a one course lunch with my husband, he had the linguini (with crayfish) and I had the flat iron steak with a red wine sauce. Both meals were delicious, my steak was perfectly cooked and the sauce was very tasty. My husband reported that the linguini was really good, it was a very large portion and he couldn't manage all of it. Very good food and service throughout. Thank you.

Enjoyed the food and the ambiance.
Two large parties in which I presume meant a change to the normal table layout because it was tight to get past my chair and it was knocked a lot, until I moved it! It also meant the food was slow in coming but the service was excellent and kept us happy with some bread and olives and a drink, handled the situation really well.
Will happily return.

The food was amazing but unfortunately we were left without drinks and no one appeared to notice. Our food took over an hour to arrive and when the waitress said she'd give us the dessert menu it didn't arrive and we had to ask another girl to bring it over. We will definitely go again though as the food was outstanding and there could've been a problem we weren't aware of.

Has the Peppermill changed hands during Lockdown? Now the Restaurant to a Hotel. Insufficient Staff, service slow, food prices increased. Will think twice before going there again. Disappointing. Used to be our favourite place to eat in Devizes.

We ate on 10th August - steak night. The food was really excellently cooked and presented well. The serving staff were working flat out as it was busy. Can’t take away what a great job they were all doing but they were struggling to keep up.

It was 35 minutes before we got a drink and an hour before we had our meal. Another long wait for desert and the staff apologising and saying the chef decided to get all the main courses served before doing deserts. Again, when the food arrived it was delicious. The long waiting for service made it rather a stressful event.

Hopefully a one off for some reason as we frequently eat at the Peppermill.

Service was poor. Between starters & main took around 50 mins in between. Very disappointed. starters were nice. Battered fish was ok, and the triple cooked chips were more like oven chips.

Excellent food.
Best sashimi I have ever had.
Got cider by accident instead of bitter and don't normally drink it, but this one was very drinkable.
I would certainly go again when in Devizes.

I really loved the changes made here with the outside courtyard. The food remains excellent and I had the best vegan meal I’ve had in ages!!!
