We eat here for evening meals three nights in a row, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. Staff very friendly and food presentation was good. Portions are large and choice from menu was broad. Highly recommended. Ceri

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.
