One of the focal points in the market place as you enter the heart of this large village. Originally an NBC house, following the Watney's takeover, it underwent much internal and external reconstruction in the 1970's and all traces of the original separate bar areas were lost. It is now one very long open plan room, with large TV screens at either end and music supplied by a jukebox (although live music is performed at certain times during the year). A pool table dominates one end of the room, whilst the other end is predominantly seating. There are several interesting old photos of the Peacock taken over the years and many showing the pub in its former NBC livery. There is a courtyard garden at the back and a smoking area. Up to 3 ales are stocked, all of which are either from national or larger regional breweries and 1 real cider has recently been introduced, dispensed via handpump. Food has been discontinued following the retirement of the previous lessees.
