Visited the Peacock with a view to booking a long weekend in a few weeks time. It is a beautiful place, the menu looked fantastic and the food smelt and looked delicious. However at this time we just wanted a drink and some information. However we were not able to ask as the 'pub' was full and I went in...

thepeacockbakewell, The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

Quite frankly Carol A I feel it it you that has an identity crisis and a slightly bitter attitude, because Guy the waiter was not rude in any shape or form. He was simply very stressed, as you rightly say the Peacock was full to the brim and he was working his butt off dealing with taking out food, clearing...

We popped in for a pint and drinks with the kids as it looked the best pub in the town after a quick scouting mission. Really warm and cosy pub . We ordered food as the menu looked good and from what we saw coming out of the kitchen we thought 'why not'. We were really impressed with the food...

Your post is honest and respectful Graham J, so a Big Thank you on that level.

A new visitor to Bakewell, I went to The Peacock on recommendation by a family member. It couldn't have been a better experience! The food is second to none, albeit a bit pricey at first inspection of the menue. Having had such a brilliant experience though, I don't mind spending the extra £s as they are well worth spent. I...

Dani U - thank you for the kind words as your recommendation was fully qualified and what's a few extra quid when you get exactly what you command!

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.

thepeacockbakewell, It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

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. Having food you describe as a must with homemade chips - hey not cheap, but when the right boxes are ticked I'd say worth every hard earned penny. Thanks again for taking time to post...

Had a cracking meal here whilst on holiday with the family. The portion size was huge. We both had beef and ale pies and oh my gosh, they were delicious! Wish we had stayed in Bakewell longer as we would have definitely eaten here again. Would definitely visit if I was in the area again

My wife and I stayed at the peacock for 2 nights over the August bank holiday weekend.
