Went for Christmas Day meal - 12 of us at a cost of £400.
We didn't know that turkeys were round in shape, as that 's what we got sliced. It looked like a Bernard Matthews turkey roll!
Also, Aunt Bessie must have worked in the kitchen that day, as the roasties were frozen. Sprouts are not very popular at the best of times but even more so when they are like mush.
Will we be going there again? I don't think so Sonny Jim!

Good service, great food, kids were welcome. Will go again.

Good value food - most meals are 2 for the price of 1. Generally friendly staff, but sometimes overworked which slows service down (maybe they need to get the staff ratio right).
Decent outside area and enclosed garden. Small car park but it just about copes most of the time (although it does tend to flood, which reduces space).
The pub is always clean, meals are consistently good quality, and appears to have good clientele. Music is nearly always playing but it's never too loud.
I've used the pub for business meals, so I guess you can't get a better recommendation than that.

Quality throughout. The new refit has transformed the Cross Scythes at Totley and the new management are doing a fine job creating a great atmosphere in the place.
The food we had was excellent. I can recommend the pork belly with black pudding mashed potatoes. The service was better than most restaurants and overall better value for money than other gastro-pubs around Sheffield. Just what we needed.

One of the most friendly clubs or pubs I have ever been in. From the warm welcome to the call of time it was so nice to see a place like this.

We are now open again. With cheap drink and good company, come and see Artic the Siberian Husky who is softer than soft - just be careful he doesn't get past you when you come through the door!
Hope to see you all soon!

Our party of 9 adults and three children had the Christmas Fayre Sunday lunch and I have to say the 3-course meal was fantastic.
Having had a carvery there previously, which has always been to the usual carvery standard, the starter and desert made this excellent value for money at only £8.50 per head, and free for under 5s.
The food was hot where it should have been, and portions very large. The staff were very polite and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone. We had a lovely relaxed meal and didn't feel any stress when the children felt the need to walk around a little. Many thanks to all.

The pub in general is very busy and has a fantastic atmosphere, thanks to the staff and management.
Sunday lunch is brilliant value at 2 for £8 and the quality is superb.
We have had some fabulous Motown and soul evenings, which have been on a Friday evening and well worth a visit. The quizzes have also gone down a treat and has a great student interest.

Called for a carvery with 4 more people on Saturday 28th November 2009.
Service was very poor. The carvery was OK but we had to wait 25 minutes for our sweet. When it came it was nearly thrown on the table. The atmosphere was not good and there were not many people in the pub, which was not surprising.

Visited the Peacock last night for a cosy meal for two and was very disappointed. All over the entrance it states home cooked food and dishes of the day from the blackboard, which was a curry!
When the dishes arrived it was clear this was not the case and on a par with every other large pub chain. Also, when asked about the chips and onion rings for sides they stated they were frozen. (I wish we had gone home at this point).
I had the chorizo chicken for £10.25, which was very over priced for what you got. The 3 courses for £12 looked good value for money, however again the food was run of the mill.
Another disappointment was that it promotes a cosy atmosphere with an open fire. We arrived at 7:30PM and by 8:30PM the fire was nearly out and the pub started to get cold. No one re-stoked the fire.
Our bill for 2 was £45 with drinks, certainly not worth the experience.
On a positive note the staff were friendly and attentive. Unfortunately we will not be back.
