The sculpture by Wakefield artist Jason Heppenstall is made from cutlery, and has been a mascot of the pub since it opened in October 2016.

Sarah Bruno, one of the pub and hotel's managers said Pevrell was a talking point, and appealed for his safe return.

"Pevrill means a lot to us all, he's a real feature of the pub," said Sarah.

"I'm surprised anyone managed to lift him, he's about a meter long.

"All we've got left of him is his whiskers - the whole village wants him back and we're all a bit annoyed that he has been taken."

A post on The Peacock At Barlow's Facebook page said: "We are heart broken at the fact he has been taken and he will be missing his home.
"We want him back safe and well and are offering a massive reward for his return."
