Waited at the end of the bar where it look like they were taking orders for food, after waiting a while we asked a member of staff if this was where we ordered food to be told you can order it anywhere at the bar and disapered, in doing so we noticed that several others came in after us and...

Had a wonderful three night stay at the Peacock at the end of July. So lucky to have managed to book in at short notice and we weren't disappointed with the room allocated.

I had ribeye steak with extras. The steak was cold and full of gristle - I left most of it. The salad included decomposed lettuce and the onion ring were cold, soggy and dripping fat. The mushroom was tasty. Chips were cold, but tasted OK.

Excellent food, good service, would go again if ever in the area. Quite pricey for a pub but the quality of the food was worth paying extra for. Our kids cleared their plates. The chips were particularly good and he children's meals were good freshly cooked and looked appealing.

We stayed at The Peacock for 2 nights in July 2016 for a short trip to Bakewell. Room was clean, spacious and nicely furnished and the Peacock is centrally located in Bakewell. Didn't eat at the hotel other than for breakfast, which was included, but that too was excellent with masses of choice. Couldn't fault and would definitely stay again... More
