The best breakfast we've had in a long time. Sensible amount of quality ingredients presented with tempting style. Evening food just as good. Especially the pie and the chillie.

We stayed in Bakewell for a week and tried most of the restaurants. This was our favorite. The food is delicious and the welcoming atmosphere is beyond what we expected. We will return.

Excellent food and service at The Castle in Bakewell. We have visited several times and on all occasions the service has been helpful and friendly and the meals are good, with many home cooked dishes.
