We booked to stay at The Red Lion for 2 nights and stayed in Room 1 which was very specious with the view of the high street. The room and general area were exceptionally clean. Overall the pub had lovely character, very friendly staff, great food and very generous portion. Great choice of breakfast. Only drawback was that the shower... More

We visited here for lunch after seeing the specials board. The thought of a roast pork or beef barm with home made chips served with salad and gravy sounded excellent and we were not disappointed. The barm was excellent with a good serving of meat and came with Apple sauce and stuffing in the pork. The chips were like wedges... More

Went for a fishing break with our partners. While we (the blokes) had a great time on the Wye, the girls shopped in Bakewell. Only spent the night in The Red Lion but it was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was super. The hospitality was second to none. I would love to return sometime. Highly recommended!

I called into The Red Lion on a very busy market day in Bakewell. The pub was really busy and lively but there were plenty of bar staff to take my order and serve me a drink. From the specials board I chose the chicken, bacon and cheese sandwich served with homemade chips and salad for £5.95. The food arrived... More

Stopped in for lunch and had a good lunch washed down by a great pint of Real Ale (Bitter). The atmosphere is good - typical pub. The menu is also typical pub fare, with me having a choice of Beef & Ale Pie or Fish & chips. Went for the beef pie & chips - home made, served hot and... More
