Ate here for the second time this afternoon, and had a wonderful, properly home cooked lasagne. Beautifully served, with a huge salad and proper garlic bread. It was so substantial I couldn't finish it, and apologised to the chef for not doing it justice, when it was so lovely. Will absolutely eat here again Extensive menu to choose from

thepeacockbakewell, Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much, at The Peacock, responded to this review

I put my hand on my heart and say the Lasagne we make and serve on the premises at the Peacock is as good as it can be and you can eat AJJP1. Thanks for saying it, and we don't take offence if you couldn't eat it in it's entirety, we understand and will see you next time you eat... More

During our weekend away camping in Ashbourne we took a trip to Bakewell for Lunch on Sunday. The Peacock had a really buzzing atmosphere (the wasps did add to this, however they weren't that bad.) So as expected there was about a 40 min delay on food, it was Sunday after all. We were in no rush and very happy... More

A Big thank you to Graham H and his German entourage who had a smashing time for 5 nights in Bakewell and I believe covered many sights and sounds of the beautiful countryside that surrounds the lovely town of Bakewell.

We last ate here about 2 years ago and I gave the place 4 stars for a great lunch. Not sure if the place has got better, or, more likely, I simply should have given 5 stars last time too. We had the chicken and pork terrine starter (gorgeous), followed by Sunday roasts - a lamb; beef; and Turkey. Each... More

I am so glad I discovered this little gem in the heart of Bakewell! From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. We spent the day walking around the peak district, arrived back tired and hungry, but the restaurant was very busy as it is obviously a popular place. No problem, they delivered our food to our room... More

We visited the peacock on a recommendation & were really glad we did. The menu may not sound unique but the style in which it is served elevates to gastropub level & the portions are sizeable enough to make it great value for money.

Nice pub food with a lovely beer garden! Inside is warm and comfortable. The peacock burger is a must and the homemade chips really make the meal! Worth stopping in for a bite sometime. Not cheap but worth the few extra pounds.

Thanks Adam L, as what more can you ask for than nice pub food, with the added incentive of a lovely beer garden in summer.

We visit every year in September and we are never disappointed. Excellent food and although a little expensive you get value for money...enormous portions but still manage to clear the plates! Staff great and kids seem to think its brilliant when the owner recognises them!! Looking forward to another meal next year!

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.
