Description: The Peacocok is a 200 year old, and very typical English pub set in the Centre of Bakewell Town. We offer accommodation varying from lovely traditional type rooms in the old stables fully converted with en-suite bathrooms (showers only) inc full English breakfast if booked direct with the Peacock as opposed to third party web sites - Book direct with the Peacock to achieve a better deal. The Pub has a very varied menu that is all prepared and cooked on the premises by very skilled competant chefs with many fantastic specials.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The Peacock takes some beating for service, food quality and beers. Visited many times and never been disappointed.

“Divine food and great service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Portion sizes are great value for money, our family of 10 couldn't finish their own plates of food! Superb choice of meals and food all palates and tastes! We can't express how much our large family loved this restaurant, it's fresh, home cooked great quality food was DELICIOUS!
If we are ever in Bakewell again, we certainly won't hesitate to call in for a meal again!!!
The bar staff and waitresses were very friendly, polite and cheery, they even let us sample their selection of real ales for free!
We would ALL recommend a visit to the Peacock when visiting Bakewell!

“Excellent pub food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went here on a busy bank holiday weekend and although we were told our food would be a while as it was busy, the food really didn't take too long at all. We sat in the conservatory which was lovely. I had the steak and stilton hot sandwich which was amazing and a large portion. My partner had a club sandwich which was also a generous size. We had a side order of chips too. Has to be the best pub lunch I have had. We will definitely be back next time we are in Bakewell!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stumbled on this pub whilst going back to our hotel after an all day visit to Chatsworth. On the outside the pub looks like any other pub, nothing special. However, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. I would recommend

“Huge servings, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Friendly staff and plentiful fresh food. Traditional decor and great music. The food was served on large boards and was freshly cooked. Good choice of salads or vegetables. Recommended for traditional English fare.
