Firstly, the manager of this establishment should be nominated for an MBE for his/her brilliant responses to TA criticisms. I would consider it an honour to be on the business end of his/her put downs, sadly, however, I have nothing negative to say. We saw...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.
