Had a run out to Bakewell on a Sunday afternoon and came across the Castle inn for lunch.All I can say is that we made a great choice. I had the roast beef and my husband had lamb shank . Both meals could not be faulted. Lovely fresh veg and home made yorkshires . Definitely highly recommend the Castle Inn

We have just returned from a very comfortable one night stay at at The Castle Inn. Although we arrived earlier than the due check-in time due to my husband having a meeting in the area, I was made very welcome and settled into a window seat with a lovely hot cup of coffee and my bags were carried to the...

Stayed for a weekend at this great pub with my husband and father. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. John the landlord was very helpful and could not do enough for you! Great menu and great food. John makes sure you have everything you need at breakfast and has time for a chat! Will certainly be back!

We enjoyed a three-day stay at this superb pub. Nothing was too much trouble for the landlord, John, who went well out of his way to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. The attention to detail was amazing. The room was spacious, well maintained and serviced and the food was excellent and extremely good value. The breakfast has to... More

Reserved a table for dinner at the Castle for 8pm knowing that it would be busy due to The Bakewell show that was on that week. On arrival we were told that the waiting time for food would be half an hour since we had arrived 10 minutes early we thought that was acceptable and would relax and have a... More

They have converted two garages at the front of the hotel - the decor is very, very nice indeed. A few niggles - it can be noisy if punters are drinking outside, bottle bank emptying at 7.30am wakes you up quite sharply and the bed is a little too small for my 6'3, 18st frame. Breakfasts are plentiful and well... More

Went to this Pub for lunch. It is a quaint old Pub. Good choice on the menu at reasonable prices. We had a home cooked lunch and it was good. Service was very friendly. Would recommend The Castle if you are in Bakewell.

We have stayed at several of the Old English Inns, so chose to stay at the Castle for our stay in Bakewell. There was sufficient parking beside the Inn, and our room was perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately the stay covered the 2 hottest nights of the year, and we only found the fan on the second evening. We had breakfast on... More
