Lets get the reasons why we didn't mark this B&B as excellent out of the way first. Really minor points but the wash basin in our en-suite was very small and so it was a bit of a struggle to wash without splashing water on the floor and made filling the kettle awkward. The only other point is that you... More

thepeacockbakewell, knick nack paddywack, give the dog a bone, or fetch the gun, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

Paddywack paddywack paddywack, give the dog a bone! - I give up, I honestly do!!! I've just spent £60,000 f%c&ing pounds on refurbishing the rooms, and you despite a mountain of fantastic positives find time to moan about a sink, that incidentally probably cost more than the one you have in your home.... You find time to moan about filing... More

Really nice food and generous portions. A bit overpriced. Roast was lovely but waitress a bit rude. Slammed our plates down on our table and quite a wait for food but it was very busy. Still good pub grub.

I'll tell you what Sarah D - I think I know the girl you are referring too, and I don't think she would have slammed any plate with food, down on the table - please define slammed, as I feel in your own mind you are being a little pedantic - that's fine, but why didn't you come to the... More

We were in Bakewell for 3 days and ate at The Peacock twice.Lovely food, lovely staff, well worth a visit. Fish and chips definitely worth a try. It's probably not the cheapest place but you get what you pay for.

The food at The Peacock is fabulous. Really good top end pub grub. We had a lovely waitress who went out of her way to accomodate us. There was one waitersS who was a bit rude, but we put it down to her having a busy day. It's a bit of a shame that they don't do a running tab,... More

thepeacockbakewell, The 'Great' Peacock is one way of describing us if you choose to stay, visit or dine, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

The Great Peacock - just like the Great Gatsby, has a certain ring to it Mike, and we thank you for the lovely honest review as you christened the newly refurbished room 5, which as you rightly state you have to pinch yourself when you open the door, as we are not now the standard B & B - the...

Went in on a Saturday afternoon for a bite to eat after a walk. Got a table no problem (although I imagine we would have struggled if we'd arrived any later as it started to fill up quickly). I had chicken madras (with rice, naan, poppadom and chutney) and my partner had the chicken burger (with chunky chips and salad).... More

Lovely lovely food and the portions are ginormous, glad I didn't attempt a starter! The chicken burger I had was yummy, as was the veggie burger and gammon! Although, if you are ordering a side of chips just get the normal portion as the chunky ones were just too chunky! Definitely give it a try if you are in the... More

Me and my partner stayed here last weekend, the possible reason for it being pricey was because it was the last room available?? This was not the reason for the average rating, I'm no skin flint... The rooms were really comfy and I had a great nights sleep. The service, fantastic staff, can't say a bad word, excellent customer service.... More
