9 of us visited here for lunch on a hot summer's day. The place was heaving, but we managed to find seats outside. Despite the crowds it didn't take long for us to get served. The food was excellent - especially the Ploughman's, which was ample for two adults and a child! Everyone enjoyed their meals, and we would definitely... More

We ate here in July 2014. The portions are HUGE. I had to sit on the burger to get it in. The lasagne was a meal for two. Good selection of drinks too. Very good food, very good drink selection. Bistro quality. Downside - On the day the staff were over ran by the busy crowd. The toilets were absolutely... More

A nice review of sorts, but somewhat spoilt by a vindictive complaint with reference to the toilets..... I can't recall the exact day of your visit Biggles, but it has been hot and sticky these last few days and if we got hit, by as you put it a busy crowd - the description itself tells you in an instance,...

We came to the Peak district on a weeks holiday and ate at a number of place and I think The Peacock was the best. Great food well presented, hot food on hot plates as it should be and truly massive portions, I could say a little too much perhaps. The elderly gentleman next to me had a small whale... More

We have had lunch at the Peacock many times and we have never been disappointed. In fact, we wouldn't eat anywhere else! Graham, the owner, is a really great guy, very attentive and nice to chat to. He has a BRILLIANT choice in music that is played at exactly the right volume from his fabulous Jukebox. This makes for a... More

Went for lunch al fresco with friends. Food looks good but very high on grease factor. Had thai fiscakes and fried too death Overpriced too and the person taking the food orders at the bar was very unfriendly.

thepeacockbakewell, the al fresco kid, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

....al fresco dining - isn't that a style of dining that is casual and often party like in its atmosphere? You are of course entitled to an opinion taraohARA, but I beg to differ on your analysis, as we do not over fry our Thai Fish Cakes to death, unless of course yours was an unfortunate one-off! The fish cakes... More

thepeacockbakewell, you will not be disappointed if you pay direct, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

It's a shame you are disappointed through your own misdemeanours Bill, and we have to take the blame as you foolishly booked through booking.com.... If you weren't so lazy, and had made a simple phone call direct to the Peacock, you would have secured the room for the exact same price which would have included the full English Breakfast, so...

thepeacockbakewell, How Much????????????, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

To be fair I think I expected this type of post, because within one minute of arrival of the couple checking in, we got the obligatory 'I think you've charged us too much we should only be paying £99 per night' - when in actual fact the room rate was set at £119 for a July week end! As booked... More

Booked for 2 nights in early May for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We had the four poster room by the patio. It was so good we booked another night. The room was lovely and clean and very comfortable. The food was wonderful and plenty of it, beautifully presented with special little touches (like a miniature glass of ale on the... More

Had dinner here with my partner who has a garlic Allergy. The staff could not do enough for her, making several trips to the kitchen to make sure that no garlic was contained in any of the food ingredients that she chose. The Lamb Cutlets are a must, the whole meal consisting of generous portions. The inn is in a... More
