Chose a very busy Christmas market day for a visit. Service was not fast but the pub was packed. Interesting menu with excellent choice of local produce. Slightly spoiled by ludicrous hipster serving style ( food on slates, stupid chip baskets or in mini milkchurns)....More

Nice Sunday lunch. Not cheap but tasty and fresh. Decent beer selection from Peak Ales. Welcoming on a cold crisp day. Service OK.

thepeacockbakewell, I really like feeling connected to people and feeling like I have a good, solid sense of empathy, at The Peacock, responded to this reviewResponded 2 weeks ago

Tasty and fresh should never be cheap Teacake_Taster, and there is a reason, if it's only for being good and solid! It does go further, but that's for the readers to surmise..... Thanks for the posting!

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.
