Had a lovely stay for 2 nights. The food was good and great location. The room was nice although a little dark. The staff were so nice and friendly and we felt very welcome. Would like to come back made our trip very pleasant.

We visited here during one night stay in Bakewell. Lovely pub, relaxing atmosphere and great food. Portions very generous but delicious! Good wine! The place was fairly busy and service was prompt and friendly. Would recommend.

Called in for lunch on the Sunday before bank holiday. As the weather was beautiful, we decided to sit in the garden. Bakewell itself was absolutely full to the rafters, so every pub/eatery was really busy. The menu here is extensive, the quality of the...More

The food came from a normal enough pub menu but the quality was high. The price of the food was high too but worth the extra on balance. Breakfasts were outstanding. The presentation was particularly good and the variety and fruits and yoghurt were good...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.
