The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and breakfast was a decent full English ( or any variation) with cereals and toast. The ales are well kept and a number of...

We had a fantastic lunch at The Red Lion, and were able to take our dog into the Tap Room. In fact there were several dogs in there, no problem at all. I had a turkey roll with stuffing, cranberry sauce, salad and home made chips, fantastic! My husband had the special burger, pork, black pudding and mushroom, again with...

It's always a struggle coming to a touristy town when on holiday. Bakewell is no different, 6 places serving the 'Only Original' Bakewell Pudding and lots of tea/coffee rooms. So finding the Red Lion was hitting the jack pot. Great friendly staff, good beer and incredible food all at a great price. If you even passing by Bakewell, stop, have...

Looking for somewhere for Sunday lunch we thought the menu here looked interesting so popped in. Although it was busy we were soon shown to a table and served with friendliness and efficiency. The food was delicious - I can recommend the roast pork cob (although I had it in a wrap) and my friend rated the pie of the...

Stopped off at the Red Lion for lunch whilst visiting Bakewell and the surrounding area and was our second visit after thoroughly enjoying our first. The staff were very courteous and welcoming and was quite busy. The menu is standard, reasonably priced and very tasty. The restaurant is very traditional with oak beams and tables with a wonderful atmosphere with...

We popped in here for a drink but saw plenty of other people tucking into food that they looked like they were thoroughly enjoying. Quite your standard pub menu but very reasonably priced. Good selection of beers and ales and a bar full of regulars is always a good sign.
