Lovely food, which was very tasty. A little bit expensive for a lunch, however you get what you pay for, and both me and my partner were both extremely satisfied with our meal. Great atmosphere and good covid measures - will definitely be coming back again!

Well rochelldion, to be quite honest a very refreshing review of the Peacock, because of late we have had some right baffoons coming on here and giving pathetic reviews during these Covid-19 times - quite literally!!! Your review is mindful of the times we are experiancing, but thank you for posting your honest comments with regard to what the Peacock is all about - none of this pontificating rubbish coming in from the likes of Guy T, Goc1996, and heleneR3913 even Silentadvisor2 who in all honesty haven't a clue what they are on about if the truth be told - ahh well, we live and learn!!!

We stopped here on Wednesday night. We arrived at 2:30pm and had a drink before we checked into our room. I asked a member of staff how we checked in, he went to ask and brought us a check in form. a few minutes later another man from behind the bar just said 'you ready' despite us still having our drinks. When we went to him and passed our form he just left it at the side of the till where anyone in the pub could of had my details. the room was far too warm and very loud music between 9pm-10pm which kept us from settling down. At breakfast the woman didn't wear a mask when serving us and the breakfast itself seemed to be more about looking good than actually tasting nice. Was left feeling very gutted as treated my misses to a night away and it was just a let down.

Let me say straight away Guy t you need to take a rain check in a big way because let me tell you despite your pathetic comments you really need to analysis who and what you are!!! If you feel that your details would have been taken down you are having a laugh - absolutely, as besides who would want your details as all I said when I placed your details on the side was 'are you ready' in a friendly mode as one does so you would feel at home and if you took offence I really feel sorry for you!!! If the room was too warm all you had to do was turn down the heating, as it s always better to be warm than cold - end of argument! ...and as for loud music you must again be having a laugh as we do not play loud music, but our attitude from reading your comments it seemed to be all about you and the need to complain!!! The breakfast you received was exemplary and that is a promise - end of (yet again) If this is your attitude I would definitely never ever envy your wife for having to put up with you - end of really (again) and please don't ever show your face at the Peacock again, as we certainly don't endorse moaning individuals who seem to want to moan, moan, moan about nothing (so the waitress who served you didn't wear a mask - wow) but whatever makes you happy in complaining!!! You really need to open your eyes, look within, - are you satisfied with the life you're living, maybe not, but don't put the blame on us! You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining - You make progress by implementing ideas Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining - it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn't solve any problems, and if we were a let down I can only wonder what would make you (and possibly your wife) happy!!! Watch out for the joy-stealers: gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude. There's always haters, no matter what you're doing - whether they're complaining that everything you do sounds the same, or it's too different.

My friends and I booked a table of 6 for food, which I cannot deny was absolutely incredible. However, the staff appeared confused and untrained. The young girl assigned to work with us, was rude and was unable to make eye contact or even exchange pleasantries. She didn’t look like she wanted to be there! Now I understand covid-19 has put a strain on the industry and those who work within it, but kindness costs nothing. Also, having read how the owner of this establishment responds to negative feedback on this forum. I am not surprised the young girl was untrained and rude, as it’s clearly learnt behaviour straight from management!

You are served by your own admission incredible food yet still find time to concentrate and give us your thoughts on one particular girl - leave it out you miserable person, go elsewhere and see what kind of food you are served in these Covid-19 times!!! False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. You are a disgrace!!!

We arrived in Bakewell happy to find a pub with lots of outside space. Many people sat and we looked for a table that didn't have "not in use"...good for distancing. A couple got up so we headed over to take it..."Good Luck!" they said....I asked why. They said you'll never get served. My husband went in as we only wanted drinks. He said the woman behind the bar was very rude, huffed and even rolled her eyes when a customer asked where to do track & trace. He returned saying she was so rude he wanted to leave.....at first I said let's wait, someone will come. But they didn't. As we left a table of motorcyclists all left and another couple...all unserved. In fact we saw them sat outside another public house in Bakewell! We found another place where the service was friendly and polite......

I am getting sick and tired of answering these type of pathetic TripAdvisor reviews and it's all down to Covid -19 rules and regulations you pathetic people!!! This is a crisis and we will get round to people when and how we can and if you are not prepared to wait your turn then go ahead and find an alternative bar or whatever in Bakewell that has not nearly as Big ( and I mean not as nearly as big) a beer garden as at the Peacock! We are now being criticised by silly little people who think they should come first when we are being 'bombarded' by people who we have to serve at their table in these poor track and trace conditions - this is not our fault and despite your ignorant comments - yes they are ignorant because if If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them, and that is a promise! Remember when you are posting your arrogant comments the evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding. Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity - and you have it all heleneR3913VT. ps....just wanted to add we have now purchased an app (courtesy of Flipdish) that helps us to help you, so no-one will be ignored despite how unassuming and ignorant they are!

After waiting 30 mins to even be approached and asked if we wanted drinks or we were in for food, we were greeted by a very hostile member of staff. The food was adequate but the service very poor. If you are in a rush, or can’t deal with poor customer service this is not the place for you to go.
