We were a group of 7 women who booked last minute and were kindly accommodated on Sat night for our evening meal. All our meals arrived together, were presented and tasted lovely. Will definitely be coming back here to eat when I next visit Bakewell. Thankyou :)

We stayed in The Peacock for 2 nights late November in the family room. This is one double bedroom and one 2xsingle bed room interconnected by the bathroom.

It gives us all at the Peacock great satisfaction to receive accolades and know we have ticked all the boxes BristolSteved, so a massive thank you in appreciation for your posting!

Visited on the weekend of the Christmas market. Cannot fault the Sunday lunch we had. The roast beef literally melted in your mouth and the Yorkshire puddings were delicious. Very well presented with lovely friendly staff. Comes highly recommended

Very friendly welcome. Shown to our room which was immaculate and warm. En-suite was modern and spotless. Dined in the pub restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all a very happy stay and we will definitely return.

Lovely old place right in the centre of town with a small first come first served car park but free parking if you can get in - we stayed on the Christmas/farmers market w/end so paid more than we would usually pay - the rooms in the outbuildings are lacking in natural light & not laid out very well (try...

After a dissappointing afternoon queuing for 45 minutes to park and then deciding not to pay the extortionate price to enter the mudbath of what appeared to be a washed out fairground (advertised as Bakewell Winter wonderland and traditional christmas market) had a wander around Bakewell itself. Enjoyed browsing in local shops and buying a few Christmas gifts. Discovered the...

....and why wouldn't you jochg2016, so in return we thank you! The carnival or Winter Wonderland - nothing to do with the patrons or Market of Bakewell I hasten to add, was a total wash out, but in their defence the weather was appalling and it takes a strong reasoning to put the blame entirely on the organisers. That said,...

Bakewell is a honey pot for weekend visitors and therefore rooms come at a premium. However for £149 per night for a double room without breakfast is a little steep. They have decorated the rooms in what they think are tasteful Farrow and Ball colours. I personally love their paints and use them all the time however they just haven't...

When you finish off your little ditty Classylady61 with a statement "I wouldn't recommend going to Bakewell' - then I feel we are basically on a hiding to nothing, because where is your class coming from (oh yes self opinionated), because Bakewell is a beautiful little tourist town that I can't even imagine how many people come to the Peak...
