We enjoyed a drink in the beer garden on a recent visit to the town. The interior is reasonably smart and comfortable and the staff were pleasant and friendly. I believe there are a few vegan options on the menu.

Despite Bakewell being very busy, the pub managed to provide efficient and pleasant service and excellent food. We had a Sunday roast and traditional pie. The food was well prepared with lots of fresh vegetables. The staff were very diligent about sanitising tables etc. A most agreeable visit!
