We visited the Castle on 30!July. There was a wide choice of food on the menu and our choices of burger and sea bass and scallop risotto were nice. However, we did have to wait about 40 minutes for our food to arrive and the restaurant was only about half full (it was early - around 6pm).

Popped in for a quick lunch Tuesday afternoon, good honest pup food, had the gaming and two eggs, not bad. Plenty of options and not overpriced compared to other pubs in bakewell. Dogs allowed in bar and outside areas.

Ordered Caesar salad, not recommended! Lettuce nice but chicken was old, cold and rubbery with skin on and the bacon taste like it was cooked in old fat! For £8.49 I expected a lot better! However my husband ordered the mixed grill and said it was average. Desert was good

We had lunch here and the reviews were mixed. The sausages & mash were ok but not great, the steak was cooked to order but a bit chewy, the steak & ale pie was tasty but the veges were a little bland, and the cheddar burger was overcooked- very well done. The chips and fries were good all around. Service... More
