My husband and I have just enjoyed an overnight stay at the Red Lion in Bakewell. Booked as part of my husbands birthday treat, and as a couple with 2 young children who do not get away together that often!, I made the reservation with mixed expectations having read a few reviews, good and bad! Howerver, I have to say that we were pleasantly suprised. We found the place to be warm and cosy, our room was basic but clean and the staff were friendly, especially the little Australian manager (great character!) and it had a lovely atmosphere throughout the day and night. We would recommend the food, great portions, hearty and tastey. I particularly enjoyed the home made Steak & Ale pie and as a lover of good old traditional food I can confidently say with great enthusiasm that for me this was the best pie ever!! huge chunks of tender beef probably at least 2 inches deep so no scrimping on filling here! and nice light shortcrust topping - hmmm!...
The Red Lion is was it is, a tradional public house with b&b facilities in the centre of beautiful Bakewell. If you're looking for a nice base to stay it fits the bill, we would definately go back.
