We visited the Barrell mid-way through a cycle ride from Bakewell. It is located on a ridge and has awesome views towards Edale on one side and towards Bakewell on the other. The food was really good, with a good choice of lunch-time menu - from sandwiches ride through to 3-course meals (inc. Sunday Lunch). A good range of well... More

The stunning view and sunset made up for what can only be said as a very average meal. The Steak pie I had was ok, let down a little by the stodgy pastry on top. The beer was not well kept. I doubt I'll be returning soon, and if I do only for the view.

We visited on Sunday, part of a large group and everyone having food. When the waitress brought our soup order she commented on one being noticeably smaller than the other. The smaller portion was taken away and brought back a little fuller, however it had been topped up with hot water, rather than with more soup, and was therefore quite... More

We booked a table at this popular pub and met up with friends here. The view from the car park is breathtaking. We had a table near to the fire, lovely on a cold day. My starter of seafood in a white sauce with a crumb topping was delicious and I recommend it. I followed this with Cumberland sausages in... More

This is a great pub for a hearty lunch or dinner. The Sunday roasts are excellent and the service is efficient and friendly. The view from the pub is fantastic too.
