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.

Reviewed June 10, 2014

We got steak on a hot plate and it was beautiful. The fillet was huge and you get to cook it on a hot stone yourself, which made an event out of it.

“Always Consistant”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The Peacock Bakewell is somewhere we like to visit on as regular basis.
You will receive a warm welcome from Landlord Graham
This pub offers excellent food, a relaxed atmosphere and you can choose your own music from the jukebox
Sunday lunch is good, but a little over-priced ......... however, the chefs know how to put a great Sunday lunch together
Thoroughly recommend The Peacock Bakewell

Gill K - and she's from Chesterfield, knows a good 'un when she finds one so thanks Gill for the lovely kind words as consistency is always the key - never think of the price, but I do understand.

See you, no doubt on your next visit.

Reviewed June 5, 2014

Happily surprised at the standard of food served at the Peacock. Great presentation, timely delivery and great tasting food. Tip though, starters are well portioned.

“The best pub restaurant I've ever been to.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This is without a doubt the best pub grub in Derbyshire! The food is second to none, my two year old son who polished off sausage & mash agreed heartily! The service was impeccable, we were made to feel so welcome & they couldn't do enough to ensure my toddler enjoyed his meal. We'd definitely go back.
