Stayed at the Peacock in Bakewell and had a lovely time. Location is perfect right in the heart of the town - very close to the lovely river. Room was great - a family room that I booked as a twin so my mum and I had a double bed each with a nice bathroom in between. Had a very... More

thepeacockbakewell, I'm not the Traffic Warden, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

This is not a review of the Peacock, but a very bitter case of SOUR GRAPES from the Aussie, wacazac who resides in Mornington Peninsula just off Melbourne....yes - Australia. The post is a total fabrication of the facts and twisted in such a vulgar way that we are laid to blame for wacazac receiving a parking ticket. The only... More

Being new to the area since November 2013 we have visited the Peacock in Bakewell numerous times as a couple or with family including visitors from abroad. I would estimate at least 10 different people in at least 5 visits. On every occasion the food has been excellent and the service good for a very busy pub in the centre... More

I stayed in this bed and breakfast on business late July and can say this is one of the most welcoming and comfortable stays I have ever experienced. The food is incredible (especially the steak pie) and as for the staff, I wish I could find more like these! Also the bed was like a cloud, the air-con was a... More

The Cajun wedges that came with were lovely and there were lots. The kids menu was very good. Our youngest however went... More

We arrived on a wet evening and had booked a one night stay and group dinner. I could not get the shower to work so re-dressed and went to the bar for help. A man subsequently came to the room and fixed it. He spoke not a word. We thought that was slightly eccentric but attached no great significance to... More

thepeacockbakewell, always check Trip Advisor first, but don't forget the Times second, if you want a true account, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

So you come on Trip Advisor davidgriffiths and condemn us because you don't know how to turn a shower on and you can't run a tab, and for that reason we are awarded one star.... ....you even go further and inform other potential guests to stay somewhere else - this in the electronic age is your prerogative and I guess...

we called in on a very wet bank holiday Monday, gorgeous food. We both chose from main menu, I had Chilli, very nice presentation, not boring mince but proper chunky beef chilli. Hubby had the steak pie, excellent presentation and packed full of meat. We will be back!!

Crap. Food over priced, portions too big. Saturday night staff had no control over the guests outside so led in bed listening to what sounded like a cat fight taking place. Took two attempts at getting the heating on in the room. Will not be back

How does your review start - Crap..... Well I suggest your review is full of Crap, as the Peacock Pub was CLOSED, on a BANK HOLIDAY SATURDAY Night and I too was laid in bed ( it was after midnight) - how can it be of a concern mine if people are in the town centre having some Bank Holiday... More
