Visited here with the family. What a wonderful old pub. Perfectly positioned. We called in for lunch and had the most fantastic lunch. Staff were friendly, food was brilliant, and like most of Bakewell, it is dog friendly

We came upon this by lucky accident. Nice atmosphere very dog friendly in the bar area. There is also a separate dining area for the poor people who don't have a dog lol. We enjoyed our meals especially the beef and ale pie. We would gladly return with or without our four legged friend. I wish there were more places... More

This has to be one of the best places to eat in Bakewell. Lots of room to sit, excellent food and you can take your dog in too!

The best breakfast we've had in a long time. Sensible amount of quality ingredients presented with tempting style. Evening food just as good. Especially the pie and the chillie.

We stayed in Bakewell for a week and tried most of the restaurants. This was our favorite. The food is delicious and the welcoming atmosphere is beyond what we expected. We will return.
