Four pounds for a pint of substandard, if not so bad you could send it back, Chatsworth Gold. This pub does what it does to attract the bakewell tart crowd so I suppose good luck to the business. But a decent pint in Bakewell seems very far off. Amazing, considering Thornbridge just around the corner! Demoted from 7 to 5 because of beer quality.

Attractive pub with central location. Food is excellent and inventive... Beers are Peak ales with a token Adnams. The Peak beers were excellent and included Swift Nick, Bakewell Best, Chatsworth Gold & a "summer special" Summer Sovereign... The pub has a large outside eating / drinking area which makes it hugely popular on sunny weekends... This is probably where the unfriendly staff comments come from. On my visit staff were fine.

Good and well-kept ales from the local Peak Ales as well as Adnams which appears to be a permanent "guest". Large old-fashioned jukebox dominating the main bar area, good selection of music on it. Staff weren't unfriendly as reported elsewhere, but also weren't exactly all smiles. As with the Castle around the corner, all just a bit flat, albeit at about 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. Best bit about the pub is that you can see the Wee Dram out of the window...

just had to post a review after sampling the chatsworth gold, a local brew that hit the spot to perfectoin. a lovely little pub that was full of character and very ideally placed in the lovely little town of bakewell. friendly staff and the sunday lunch was excellant, a little pricey at 10.95 but worth every penny, cheers!

Good beers from local brewery, but extremely overcharged. Tourist rip-off.
Very unfriendly staff, especially in the evening, being quite rude to the customers.
We have a masochistic stroke, so we tried it again twice, as we were spending quite a few days in town. Got treated very unfriendly and downright rude everytime by the lass behind the counter, so they lost our custom for the remainder of our stay.
We're staying in Bakewell on a regular basis, but they'll not see us again. There are limits...
Change the barstaff please!
