Arrived, looked around, que at the bar with no staff behind it, read the replies to reviews on here, so glad we left and did not pass a cent over to these people.

As 6 weekend visitors we chanced upon The Peacock by accident as our 1st choice of venue was fully booked on a Saturday Night. The menu was varied and there was a good busy atmosphere with all staff cheerful and helpful. We chose variously from the Menu and the steaks and lamb looked excellent as did the traditional fish and... More

It is a lovely pub, well decorated, clean with a welcoming atmosphere that can be a difficult thing to find. The food as stated is always great and I look forward to going back. Also worth... More

Had a amazing meal this afternoon with friendly efficient staff who cleared a table for us quickly even though so busy as it's Bank Holiday Monday. Excellent value for money and a great choice of beers and ales too. Would very highly recommend.

Fabulous is as good as it can get Lisa C, but thanks for posting and sharing your Bank Holiday experience at the Peacock with us! I'll tell you it is damned hard work keeping everything up to spec, especially on hot summer days and Bank Holidays! More

An article on page 18 of the Buxton Advertiser, 'War of Words over online review' (20/04/2017) reminded me once again of our unforgettable encounter last Summer with the Manager of this establishment. I note from subsequent reviews he has criticised people who have not raised their complaints face to face, little wonder, given that when you do, like I did,... More

thepeacockbakewell, Sure, I've often been misrepresented - anyone frequently quoted has this experience, even at The Peacock, responded to this review

A quite unbelievable review from UkReggie75 who has jumped on the bandwagon of third party misrepresentation of a local rag and in turn states that I was rude in an incident a year ago, when nothing could be further from the truth, pot calling the kettle black comes to mind, and all I can say to your comments re; the...

On first arrival we were met with unresponsive attitude from the staff...Was going to stay for a meal but on first impressions decided to give it a miss. Only stayed for drinks which were very overpriced.. Sorry we will not be returning to The peacock..

Husband had the pie which came with a tiny little glass of beer! I had the chilli, which was in a tortilla basket and was delicious. Highly recommend and reasonable price too.

One of the better pubs if not the best in Bakewell! Quality food offering and good position in the centre of the town. Great beer garden even though the sun was intermittent . Staff were pleasant even though they were clearly very busy, will look forward to visiting and eating again. Good value for money too.

Lovely review coming in from andy b, so a big thank you for posting his thoughts which sum up the Peacock, even on a busy Bank Holiday when we can be tested to the extreme, so to come through with flying colours is always nice to hear! Good Value - yes that's a promise we feel we uphold too, so... More

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.
