After a day gardening, we really did not want to cook so searched for a pub to offer food on a Sunday evening. We called first just to check they offered food and were advised yes but also were advised that the Sunday lunch had sold out. Nice to be advised in advance. We arrived found a table, you could...

Stayed over the weekend with extended family. Rooms beautifully laid out and very clean, surprisingly large. Breakfast was excellent. My daughter requested a banana with hers and this was provided. The landlord was friendly and helpful, making us all feel very much at home. He went to some trouble to provide pizza for my grandson's dinner.

Went for anniversary meal on a Sunday evening. Chose steak with trepidation but cooked to perfection! Husband's mixed grill also a triumph! Can't recommend enough. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service.

Delicious Roast! And so affordable. Would highly recommend as a place to eat in Bakewell. Menu prices were a lot cheaper than other pubs we visited. The Roast was huge and so tastey. Really good quality. Served by Megan and Seb who were both lovely and friendly.

We were served the largest English breakfast we have had any where which was cooked and presented well. The pub served three real ales and had... More

Popped in on spec for lunch. Sunday. A popular place. Pleasant inside. We fancied a traditional Sunday lunch. It was OK, plenty eat but nothing special. Beef was lean, veggies OK. Yorkshire pudding only OK, nothing special. We were not disappointed just a little underwhelmed. Next time we eat in Bakewell we will do some research. I am sure there... More

Called in for lunch on Bakewell market day luckily we went in at midday as all tables were full by 12-15pm so we thought its a very popular place, we were not disappointed when our delicous meals were served to us by a very pleasant young man
