Nice atmosphere in both the lounge and tap room. Menu looked great even though I only opted for warm beef sandwich, real chips also. Ideal drop in for just a beer or for a meal with friends/family. Definitely will visit again when next in the lovely town of bake well.

We ordered pork or beef baps, the chilli and also the pie. We all really enjoyed our meals. My pie was very tasty and the chips were amazing. Service was pleasant and the pub had a nice atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.

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
