My sister and I stopped in on a Sunday evening. We didn't have a booking, and the place was crowded, but we were able to secure a table right away. My sister had the steak and ale pie, and I had the chicken and ham pie. Both came with gravy, chips, and a small colander (sieve) of cooked veggies. Both... More

My wife and I took our friends to the peacock for their first visit. I was banging on to them all week explaining that this place can't be beaten for what it does and it will probably be the best pub grub they will ever have. I'm not one that's says I told you so but I was right and... More

Only stopped for drinks at the end of our walk on a busy Saturday. Really nice bar with plenty of local choices. Food on offer looked great. Clearly gets really busy in summer just looking at the number of outdoor tables. I recommend that you book in advance.

We had a lovely meal here - really delicious food, beautifully cooked with great attention to detail. We loved all the extra courses too.The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable and were very good about adapting dishes for a dairy free diet. Brilliant place for a special occasion - a real treat

After a brilliant first visit to The Peacock last year, we finally got the chance to go again at the weekend after a long 10-mile walk out of Bakewell. It was a busy Saturday but we went in early at 5ish, so were able to get a table in the nice conservatory area. The menu is excellent here, but we... More

My husband and I went to the peacock last Saturday. We had the Ploughmans Lunch. It was at its best. A wide selection of delicious cheese and meat at its best. We can highly recommend this pub.

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.
