Despite it being a Sunday evening, the pub was really busy, lots of tables reserved, which I thought was a good sign. We were glad we had booked earlier. The food was lovely, little bit expensive but well worth it.More

We was in Bakewell, and we just wanted a quick lunch, so we sat in the beer garden and ordered a sandwich. All the potions were very large (probably reflecting the slightly higher prices), but service and staff were good. Would have lunch here again.More

The Peacocok is a 200 year old, and very typical English pub set in the Centre of Bakewell Town. We offer accommodation varying from lovely traditional type rooms in the old stables fully converted with en-suite bathrooms (showers only) inc full English breakfast if booked direct with the Peacock as opposed to third party web sites - Book direct with the Peacock to achieve a better deal. The Pub has a very varied menu that is all prepared and cooked on the premises by very skilled competant chefs with many fantastic specials.
