We called in here with our dog looking for supper on a Friday evening. We were immediately welcomed by the bar staff and were impressed by the warm atmosphere and menu selection. The scampi was fat and looked home battered, served with chips and peas with a fresh salad and the roast chicken was accompanied by a really tasty gravy... More

Couldn't fault it. Friendly staff and good food/breakfast. We would definitely stop again. It comes with a free parking permit. Also a good selection of beers to please most drinkers. The room was clean and well maintained.

What's good about this place is the breakfast (tasty full English). The location, central bakewell close to all amenities. The free parking permit from 4pm-11am and the hot powerful shower! What could be better is the rooms are very basic and in honesty could do with updating (pine furniture and painted wallpaper and the no wardrobe to hang clothes in... More

My son and I stopped by for lunch after visiting a nearby attraction. I had sausage and mash with onion gravy. My son had a hot beef sandwich. Both meals were excellent and good value for money. We also sampled the local Chatsworth beer which was really good. The staff were friendly and it was a pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Popped in for a beer after a walk around the town with our dog. Nice chap behind the bar, decent choice of beers on tap and picked a great pint of Swift Nick. Decent seating outside at the back and overall a good experience.

As long as you're not expecting The Ritz then The Red Lion is just fine. And for the money you pay then you can't expect too much luxury. Old fashioned yes, but the basics are great. Lovely comfy bed, clean, ideal location, and a more than decent breakfast. Bit of an issue with condensation but certainly nothing to complain or... More

I've eaten here a couple of times. The food is great and very reasonably priced. I had the Steak and Stilton pie today which was good and I've had the steak sandwich (also topped with Stilton!) a couple of times and it’s been excellent both times. The pub has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the bar staff where courteous... More
