Kings Norton and Cotteridge
Icknield Street, Kings Norton,, B38 0EH
Perched atop the Birmingham Plateau in the tiny rural hamlet of Forhill, just two miles south of historic Kings Norton, this charming red brick former coaching inn is a hidden gem.
A real country pub built in 1828 on the ancient Roman road of Icknield Street, The Peacock Inn is a haven for walkers, ramblers and cyclists exploring North Worcestershire - but it's less than 10 miles south of bustling central Birmingham.
The whole family is welcome to join us at The Peacock. We are child-friendly and offer high chairs, baby changing facilities and a children's menu kids love.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed inside the pub but may join the family outside in our large beer garden.
For tourists, ramblers and locals alike, with its original oak beams, stone floors and log fires, The Peacock Inn offers the best of both worlds – plenty of space yet retaining a cosy ambience.
We had a great meal here with our children.
The pub manages to be really charming, whilst easily accommodating largish family groups (with some friends and their kids, there were 9 of us). There were highchairs etc, and baby food was promptly warmed up without any fuss.
The menu was very inviting and pretty long, so it wasn't difficult to choose, and our waitress was really lovely and friendly.
The food was straightforward pub food - nourishing, generous portions and good to eat. It arrived on time and was merrily demolished. Perfect!
The weather was rubbish so we didn't venture out into the garden, but were able to regale the children with the story about the famous ghost soldiers who are meant to march up and down the historic Icknield Street. A lovely meal out.
