The room was clean, well maintained, bright with lovely coordinated colours. Full marks for the tv having subtitles. Always lovely to have a bath especially for my wife. Shower not the most powerful. John is the best host you can have. Nothing is too much for him and always quick to have a joke. Location is just perfect in the... More

A lovely dinner, friendly staff welcoming and warm. Good menu selection, the sausage and mash was ddlicious. We had our dog with us and free treats and fresh water were given. Would recommend especially if you have a four legged friend.

Well, I was taken to this place in Bakewell as a surprise by my other 'alf and my good friends for my 50th. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. John the owner greeted us and was very helpful, informing us about our rooms, the free car parking and the food. The rooms were very clean and immaculate. We had plenty... More

Stayed over for a couple of nights in the Haddon Suite. The room was tastefully decorated and the room suited our needs down to the ground. Had breakfast and evening meals on both days and the food was lovely with a nice choice of menu and a good array of beers. The Castle has a nice cosy and homely atmosphere... More

Had a lovely meal in a nice cosy atmosphere. Dog and child friendly. Great friendly service. Red cabbage was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely go again. Also the option of having smaller dessert portions, but not too small. It's been a long time since I've had had chocolate fudge cake.

Great building. Average pub grub. A range of meals on offer. Some options for gluten free, though limited. Service okay. Some waiters didn't know what time they would be serving food until?! Perfect for dogs. The lady offered ours a chew and water! Lovely! We'd definitely go again.

Just spent a week over Christmas in Bakewell with my wife and for a couple of days my two daughters. I think I visited The Castle most days with my 2 Border Terrier dogs. It is very dog friendly (in the bar area - understandable as not everyone wants dogs around them while eating) Dogs given dog biscuits by the... More

We came in on a cold winter evening in early December, but after the kitchen had closed. No problem! The meals were prepared swiftly nonetheless - and they were fabulous. Great selection of cask ales too. The Bakewell tart a classic... - very memorable.
