This is a nice looking building in local stone, but inside it was awful - what a let down. All the tables were set up for dining and were too close together, there were fake fires at either end of the room, neither of which seemed to be on though it was a cold day, and the smell of fried fish or scampi lingered in the air. There's a reproduction Wurlitzer juke box, but it had been programmed to play ghastly - and I mean really ghastly - Christmas music. Some internal walls had exposed stone, but there were sections where there appeared to be distressed wood panelling, which on closer inspection turned out to be wallpaper. On the bar were fake hand pumps serving reproduction beer - not really, but I bet they would if they could get away with it. Other people seemed to be enjoying themselves, to be fair, but I'm afraid this place really got up my nose, and I don't just mean the smell of fried fish or scampi. There were three beers from Peak Ales and one from Thornbridge; my half of Swift Nick was in decent condition, but I wouldn't come back here if it had the best beer in Bakewell.

What a transformation from the pub next door called in on the 30th of may at 2 45 this pub was busy nice pleasant staff said hello to me as soon as i got to the bar the girl gave me eye contact and said wont be a minuet.
Had a pint of Bakewell best then a pint of chats worth gold and finished off with swift nick there was two other hand pumps but the wife had caught up with me. Never had Peak ales before but will look out for them in the future.
The food looked good well call back its worth a visit. ps the 3 guys that had walked out of next door were in here all the time i was in

This is a decent looking pub that has been opened out inside but still has lots of different drinking areas that are more like rooms.
There were four real ales on the bar we had a drink of Peak Ales Chatsworth Gold which was a really nice drink there was also Peak Ales Bakewell Best,Swift Nick and Adnams Bitter on.
The Pub was very busy on the saturday dinner time we went in and they also was doing a lot of food trade here.
There is also an outside area at the back to have a drink.

Visited this pub again on 1 October 2011.

This pub is still much the same as the last time we went into it and there was the same choice of beers on the bar.
We had a drink of Peak Ales Bakewell Best and this was a very nice drink so we had two drinks in here.
All three Peak Ales were selling very well during our visit.
We thought this was a very nice pub to have a few drinks in so i am rating it to an higher 8 this time.
