I have been into this Bakewell pub on more than occasion, the lines are well kept, meaning excellent quality beer, with local ales. The food has never let me down, generous portions and excellent quality. I can not speak for the accommodation but I have heard it is good and very clean. The pub is clean and the staff are... More

A lovely place to stay. The Red Lion is clean, tidy and warm. The breakfast was hot and hearty as well as offering cereal, yoghurts and juice, tea and coffee was free flowing. Our room was a decent size, lovely comfy bed and hot powerful shower as well as being quiet. The biggest asset to this Inn were the staff.... More

Had a lovely visit to the red lion pub in bakewell. Lovely beer garden with reasonabley priced drinks. Staff extremely friendly. Dog friendly. We had the burger and the mini fish and chips. Very well cooked and presented and tasted lovely. Definitely worth a visit and would come back again.

We have just returned from an overnight stay here, and what can I say it was absolutely faultless. It was spotlessly clean, room was lovely, crisp white bed linen with a comfy bed and brilliant large free standing shower. The food was fantastic - we had Sunday lunch and then breakfast this morning. It was fabulous, high end ingredients cooked... More

Beautiful old building, incredibly clean. Smell of the food on arrival delicious. Staff so friendly and helpful. Room cosy and very clean, shower really powerful and refreshing. Food lived up to expectation, had evening meal which arrived promptly and was lovely. Inclusive breakfast just as good with very attentive staff. Definitely worth a visit.
