A mooch around Bakewell with my boyfriend and sister before a long journey home for her. Fancied a proper Sunday lunch. The Peacock was recommended. We've walked past it before, it never drew us in. So, we managed to get a good table in the corner, perfect. Staff not over friendly but fine and efficient at finding table. Looking around,... More

We stayed for 2 nights early December. We received a very warm welcome with complimentary tea and the most enormous shortbread biscuits. Our room was delightful. Breakfasts and dinners in the dining room were very good. I love the fire in the bar area. Location excellent for Bakewell and Chatsworth. We are looking forward to another visit very soon.

My partner and I had a meal at this pub and although the food was enjoyable nobody came to our table to ask if we were ok/needed anything. We also sat with dirty dishes at our table before I went to the bar to inform the manager. He was then rude and sarcastic. I would not return - even for... More

You know what Grace P - nobody was rude or sarcastic with you at the Peacock, you really do need to get out more with your partner if you think that I was personally sarcastic, and the girls who served you, had in fact just had a monumental busy day at the Peacock, - no excuse, but were not as...

....I feel this review is fine, and I guess on a level playing field it's honest, but I also feel that the city visitor is a hard man to please, as to describe our food and presentation as he does, but only merit us a four star review, and on a Mad Boxing Day - well maybe is a little... More

Stayed for 1 night with a couple of friends. Very efficient and friendly staff. Our room was very clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. The shower was good and there was lots of hot water. The food was excellent especially the Steak and Stilton pie and it was served by a lovely waitress for whom nothing was too... More

.....is anything too much trouble at the Peacock - in Bakewell? Just ask Alan & Marg and you'll get the answer! No, I'd say on the comments posted, and so who the hell am I to disagree? Thanks for the post A & M - I know it was only the one night, but what a night eh!!! More

The Peacock offers the best breakfast, lunch or dinner in town. They have a chef who clearly enjoys his trade. The accommodation whilst modest, it is perfect for a short weekend break in a lovely location. As the Peacock is centrally located in Bakewell it is a perfect place to explore the area from.

Our second visit to this lovely pub and we were not dissappointed! I did get off to a bad start though - knocked my full glass of Peroni over (don't know how it happened, and it was my first drink) - anyway, the lovely lady behind the bar was quick with cloths and even replaced my drink (big thank you)!...

So let's be honest straight away - not only did me and my wife visit this pub during our stay in Bakewell because of the good Tripadvisor reviews, it was also partly to do with the witty and concise responses we saw from the Landlord too. Somehow, they just appealed to our humour and we liked the openness of them!... More

We have literally just returned from 3 nights at the Peacock. It was absolutely lovely. Let's start with the room- clean, well appointed and the bed was so comfortable I had to find out the make so I could buy one for home. Small point but often overlooked in other establishments is that there was a plug near the mirror... More
