A warm welcome awaits you at The Peat Inn, in Peat Inn village, By St Andrew’s. The Peat Inn has existed on this spot since the mid-1700s. Gradually, the surrounding village grew up around the Inn and took its name from the Inn itself, creating our unusual address: The Peat Inn, Peat Inn.

The original building has served down the centuries as a coaching inn, a hotel, a pub and a restaurant. Throughout these changing incarnations, The Peat Inn has an uninterrupted history of offering hospitality for around two hundred and fifty years. Today, it is a Michelin starred restaurant with rooms, owned and run since June 2006 by husband and wife team Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle. Together, they continue to welcome guests who appreciate the very personal experience, excellent cooking and thoughtful service, which are the hallmarks of The Peat Inn. Additionally, in The Residence, our eight suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table can extend into an overnight stay. We would love to welcome you soon.

Located in the heart of the village, main attractions and shops are all within a maximum 20-minute drive. The restaurant is situated on level ground. There is level access to the restaurant and Residence accommodation and a wheelchair accessible toilet for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01334 840206 or email
