Booking was simply and quick. Table reserved and sat down. Drinks ordered taken and delivered quickly then food. Sunday lunch, scampi and pie. Puddings of sticky toffee pudding, creme brûlée and crumble. Overall food and serve was great. Only issue was that we were not asked to check in on the COVID APP. Even thou we were eating outside I would expect us all till to check in on the app which rooms make us all feel abit safer. Four stars ✨✨✨✨ would of been 5 if we would of been asked to check in.

Decided to visit Bakewell for a day out. On our last visit we found the Barrel Inn in the Good Pub guide and got a last minute booking. This time we phoned a few days ahead to check whether they were offering outside seating necessary due to COVID restrictions. We were given a table sheltered from the wind by the front door. As luck would have it the sun shining and our table was a sun trap. I am certain that these are the best views I have experienced at any pub. You can look over 5 counties. You appreciate the clean air away from built up areas. The menu was limited due to COVID but we were informed about this when we booked. We all chose the mixed meat pie which was delicious. It was rather unusual to have to pay for the drinks , the meal and coffees all in separate transactions at the time we ordered each item, but we were eating outside and I guess unfortunately the pub in the past has had a few people who have upped and left without settling their bill, which is why they probably adopted this policy. This is definitely a pub I will return too, maybe next time booking a room because it would be great to wake on a summers morning to such a tremendous view. Once experienced never forgotten.

Stopped in eyam before going up to the barrel and hey wow. The views from the front of the building is stunning.up on a high hill side looking over the derbyshire countryside its set out on its own about 60 mins walk to foolow and eyam but it is a hilly climb back.the rooms have great views at front of property and even the side of the side rooms even though they look over car park are surrounded by stunning countryside.if you don't stop here for B&B try going for a meal or a drink you will not be disappointed.

We decided on the Barrel as it had finally stopped raining and you could see for miles. There is quite a varied menu: choice of 6 starters,9 main courses and about 8 desserts. They do 4 varieties of Sunday roast dinner. In the past, we've had the roasts, mushroom risotto and today we had the steak and ale pie. Social distancing and mask wearing are well organised and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. A gathering of the Fraser Nash vintage car owners coincided with our visit,which was a bit of a treat. Service was quick and polite. Would definitely go back again.
