Excellent food, heritage tomatoes and goats cheese curd, mussels cooked in bakewell best bitter with toasted treacle bread, pan fried sea trout and a to die for sundae. Excellent service, beautiful location. Not cheap but worth every penny.

First of all, please make sure you get the right Peacock! There's one in the middle of Bakewell and one up at Owler Bar, all within 10 miles of each other and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the reviews of the Bakewell Peacock were from people who dined here.

Anyway, lovely Sunday lunch! Turned up without a reservation to be offered a table in the bar, which was spot on. Don't let the uniformed staff put you off, sometimes that can be a recipe for stuffiness, you may begin with the feeling you might be underdressed for the occasion, but the truth is you're in very professional unpretentious hands so relax and enjoy. The food was lovely, chicken tender and moist with a fantastic smoked mash potato, I need the recipe, its sublime. The vegetarians in our group would have preferred another veggie option other than just the risotto, but they did all have the risotto and enjoyed it. Note this refers to the Sunday lunch deal not the main menu which obviously has more veggie choices. Great wine selection with bottles for all tastes and wallets. Puddings equally top notch - moist orange sponge and a trio of delicious ice creams (best vanilla ice cream I've ever had). A bit pricier than your average pub grub but totally worth the extra.

The Peacock at Rowsley is my favourite place for lunch, it's like going back 60 years, to a time more elegant and respectful. The quality of the food is top of its class.

We went for lunch and arrived quite late. We stayed for about 2 hours and never felt rushed, even though the staff must have wanted us to leave. All of the food was incredible on all four courses. The wine list is good and fairly priced. The service was very good. Will go back
