Description: 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.

“Weekend away”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Once again Graham and staff at the Peacock did us proud we had been for a meal last December and was so nice on the strength of that we booked an overnight stay b&b for last weekend. Graham remembered us from previous visit and couldn't have been more accommodating or helpfull. Another fantastic evening meal and the breakfast was to die for!! We will be back again soon!!

Paul B we are humbled, and we'll see you again further up the road!

Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date.

“Straightforward good pub food.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

A reasonably pleasant meal and decent menu. Friendly service. Straightforward good pub food, and good chips (an important test!), but I can't honestly say it was special or memorable. I have no complaints, but I don't think it rates the rave reviews. I'd eat there again if I was passing, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

thepeacockbakewell, Straightforward at the Peacock - you gotta be kidding us, at The Peacock, responded to this review, 13 June 2014
So Ian from Sheffield wouldn't make a special trip for good pub food even if the chips passed the important test - if your standards are chip related, maybe you've not really had a special or memorable moment.

You have no complaints, and the rave reviews ARE well earned, but I'm not sure what you had to eat - apart from the chips of course that passed the test, but the choices on the menu are without doubt, (in my opinion, but what do I know), fantastic so I guess we have to accept ' a reasonably pleasant meal and decent menu'.

Well that's too bad I guess - but I in return wouldn't make a special trip to Sheffield, and that's coming from someone born & bred there, and for all my sins a Wednesdayite!!!

“Great food and friendly staff”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We got steak on a hot plate and it was beautiful. The fillet was huge and you get to cook it on a hot stone yourself, which made an event out of it.

“Always Consistant”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

The Peacock Bakewell is somewhere we like to visit on as regular basis.
You will receive a warm welcome from Landlord Graham
This pub offers excellent food, a relaxed atmosphere and you can choose your own music from the jukebox
Sunday lunch is good, but a little over-priced ......... however, the chefs know how to put a great Sunday lunch together
Thoroughly recommend The Peacock Bakewell

Reviewed 5 June 2014

Happily surprised at the standard of food served at the Peacock. Great presentation, timely delivery and great tasting food. Tip though, starters are well portioned.
