We loved the food here but it is a pub and it can be little loud and noisy. The Burger is over priced and huge but try their daily specials. I loved the presentation of their food. overall, we enjoyed our experience there.

thepeacockbakewell, We may not be the Best Pub in Derbyshire , but we are in the Top One, and not too quiet about it either, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

Only a Pleasant Surprise Sam A - I'm Shocked & Hurt, but we are a pub, damned Good too, and if it was too Quiet on the Western Front, then we would be having problems.....

We had just one night at the end of April at this pleasant pub with accommodation in Bakewell. Our room was on the ground floor and faced the courtyard seating area for the pub. The room was large and smart, with two double beds and the bathroom also large and modern, with a walk in shower and lots of good...

Yorkspuds - if ever a name was more appropriate then you have it, as there is only one pudding here, and that is you.....

My twin sister has already reviewed this place but due to some poor reviews I felt the need to write.

I am at a loss why anyone would visit a fantastic establishment, comment on the fact that the Sunday Roast served was 'lovely and tender....even the fact they weren't disappointed' then further up on down the road complain that the drinks were expensive - not that I feel £14 for the round of drinks described is particularly that expensive, as...

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at The Peacock. The staff and food were sensational and the rooms were more like those of a boutique hotel than a pub.
