On our second week holiday in Bakewell where we have been to the Peacock inn for dinner on quite a few nights as we did last year on holiday. We were never dissapointed with the food or the service. The food is delicious and the portions are very generous. Yes you have to wait on your food as it is... More

We stayed at the Peacock on the hottest two nights of the year with our baby and they really helped accommodate us by providing us with a fan and bringing the amazing food up to our room while the baby was asleep. The staff go out of their way to help and the food is brilliant. Perfect location for exploring... More

We called mid week , we had the ploughmans lunch and the fish finger sandwich. Fish finger sandwich WOW, never been a sandwich it was massive, blooming gorgeous. The ploughmans was massive and the best ever. We will be back. You get what you pay for excellent food

Thank you Anita245, as you give us glowing comments as it's business as usual at the Peacock, which transfers to gorgeous as usual, so that'll do for us and yes that ploughman's lunch we serve is not only massive, but fabulous!!! See you when you get back! More

Dropped into the Peacock with our young family on a weekday evening while passing through the beautiful town of Bakewell. Walked about and stumbled upon the Peacock. To summarise: Bar wasn't that busy (no one else at bar when I ordered our food), Plenty of space at our table even with 4 small children, Food was very tasty and plenty... More

We stayed 2 nights in room 4 which we immediately liked - generously sized, clean and comfy. Our friend's room on the other side of the building was less generous, apparently. Breakfast and Dinner was tasty and the menu was varied with lots of local choices. Other half's fish and chips were among best he has had. The service was... More

I wouldn't visit this establishment again. There are lots of other more welcoming pubs in Bakewell. The staff are rude. I'm very surprised this place is still open due to the rudeness of the staff. Great location, nice building but it takes more than that nowadays to compete.

Stayed in Bakewell over the carnival weekend and ended up eating in The Peacock twice. Our hotel food wasn't up to much so we looked elsewhere and The Peacock pub grub came up trumps. The chicken curry was amazing . Yes it's a bit pricey for pub grub but well worth it . We did wait a while on the... More

Myself and three colleagues booked and visited this pub-restaurant for dinner as it was central and convenient and there did not appear to be much choice in Bakewell. The menu seemed OK except it was laminated in plastic and a bit greasy, but we decided to stay and give it a go. However although the food was alright it seemed... More
