Yesterday was my first ever visit to Bakewell. What a nightmare getting into this town on a Bank Holiday Monday. It's a lovely little town in a picturesque riverside setting. But it does get overwhelmed with tourists. The Peacock was no exception. It took around 15 minutes to get served and all tables were taken. Many were in for lunch. I retreated outside and managed to grab a table, once I'd finally been served. I can imagine this to be a nice and cosy place on a quiet winter's evening. So a summer bank holiday lunchtime may have given a false impression. Ales were Peak Ales Bakewell Best Bitter, Chatsworth Gold & Summer Sovereign & Thornbridge Lord Marples. Moved on from here to the Lamb at Holymoorside, which is not listed on here.

Not a lot changed in 2 years. Chatsworth Gold no more than OK.

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...
