When I originally moved to Athens, my brother-in-law told me I was going to love the Peasant; I moved away from Athens a year ago and I still miss the Peasant. A small English gastropub that draws an eclectic, well-adjusted crowd and exudes a homey but hip vibe. Very excellent food; I recommend their poutine, pot pies, and corned beef... More

This is a small place with a large British atmosphere--and football on the telly. My last trip there was with my wife and her father. There's a nice selection of beer and a full bar. The menu is British primarily with things like fish and chips, bangers and mash and lamb stew. On nice days there is outdoor dining available... More

Fish and chips on a Sunday with a small terrier staring at eye level. Dogs are allowed, food is on the small side. Won't be returning.

The Royal Peasant is a great place to have some good pub food while watching some soccer or enjoying the outdoor patio overlooking the nicest part of town. The lamb stew and the bangers and mash are amazing, but the portions could be bigger, which is my only con. Overall, great food and atmosphere.

It's a pub in a university town. Microbrews and simple but delicious fare. Wait staff that we had was less than enthusiastic but the food made up for it. Cheers.

The Royal Peasant is my all time favorite restaurant. When you imagine a British pub this is it. The prices are amazing for the food quality you receive. For $20 you could get a fast food meal or a meal at The Royal Peasant for two people. Love the fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the burger. It is... More

Great food, great atmosphere. My favorite restaurant in Athens! The restaurant has a nice patio space with heaters for the winter and fans for the summer. The food is consistently delicious and there is something for everyone - great pricing as well. The atmosphere feels like your local neighborhood pub with friendly staff and both college students and families enjoy... More

Had never seen or heard of this place. My husband and I like to try new "unique" places...something that looks different with a different atmosphere rather than the commercial food chains out there. As soon as we stepped through the door the aromas had our mouths watering! The special was game hen with a fennel sauce...I was all in until... More

Subject: The Royal Peasant Location: Athens, Georgia, United States, North America Title: Best Local Neighborhood Pub ID#: 392215606 I eat here fairly frequently with friends. It really is a neighborhood pub where the wait staff and bar tenders know their clientele. The food is standard pub fair with a twist, including daily lunch specials.
