Peacock Public House

Surrounded by the untamed beauty of the Derbyshire Peak District landscape just 20 minutes from Sheffield on the old turnpike road to stately Chatsworth House and pretty Bakewell, this Grade II listed 19th century inn commands stunning views of the rugged heather moorlands.

Built in the early 1800s to take advantage of improvements to the perilous coach roads traversing the Peak District, The Peacock Inn stands in splendid isolation on Owler Bar next to the Toll House cottage where travellers paid the turnpike toll. The Peacock is the ideal base from which to take in the spectacular countryside of the Peak District National Park, from the rolling hills and dales of White Peak, to the dramatic crags and sweeping moorlands of Dark Peak. The Derwent Valley Heritage Way passes through nearby Grindleford and more adventurous trails along Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edge popular with climbers are within easy reach of The Peacock Inn.

With stunning views in summer and cosy open fires in winter, The Peacock Inn offers a traditional welcome to tourists and ramblers alike a handsome moorland pub restaurant with a snug cosy ambience. It's the perfect way to savour traditional pub food and relaxing Sunday lunches on a day out in the beautiful Peak District.

    Went with a party of 36 to The Peacock at lunchtime. It was apparent that extensive redecoration had taken place recently. The atmosphere was excellent, as was the food. Service could not have been better. The food was hot. Service continued at a good pace so no one was left waiting. This continued through all courses the waitress and waiter were polite and could not have been more helpful.

    No one in our party had a bad word to say about the food or service.

    Intend to return.

    Visited the Peacock last night for a cosy meal for two and was very disappointed. All over the entrance it states home cooked food and dishes of the day from the blackboard, which was a curry!

    When the dishes arrived it was clear this was not the case and on a par with every other large pub chain. Also, when asked about the chips and onion rings for sides they stated they were frozen. (I wish we had gone home at this point).

    I had the chorizo chicken for £10.25, which was very over priced for what you got. The 3 courses for £12 looked good value for money, however again the food was run of the mill.

    Another disappointment was that it promotes a cosy atmosphere with an open fire. We arrived at 7:30PM and by 8:30PM the fire was nearly out and the pub started to get cold. No one re-stoked the fire.

    Our bill for 2 was £45 with drinks, certainly not worth the experience.

    On a positive note the staff were friendly and attentive. Unfortunately we will not be back.

    We use the Peacock fairly regularly and on most occasions have been very satisfied. Only once when the place was very crowded did we have to wait an age before being served.

    Generally the food quality is good if not spectacular.

    Just returned this evening after a single main course meal that was good.

    From the outside the building looks beautiful and it has fantastic views when sitting outside. The inside of the building is also very nice and homely and clean. However, the food really doesn't live up to expectations.

    The menu reads very nicely and you conjure up an image of what you think it may resemble when it arrives at the table. When the food came it was so very disappointing. The starter of "roasted field mushrooms with camembert and a garlic breadcrumb crust" was in fact 2 soggy breakfast mushrooms with hardly any cheese on, and only one of them was sprinkled with the breadcrumbs. The cost - £4.40! They did remove them from the bill after complaining.

    The mains were very poor, too. Mixed grill was rubbery and the fried egg was not runny and flowing into your steaks, it was hard as if it had been made earlier then re-heated. The Moroccan spiced lamb burger had no inkling of spice, was served between 2 pieces of flatbread about 3" x 5" and a bowl of sweet potato wedges, now the funny bit - £8.80!

    I would go in for a drink and to enjoy the scenery, but would certainly not eat in there again.

    We had an anniversary meal for my parents 40th on Sunday. The food was the best I have had for a long time - a class above to the normal pub meals.

    Unfortunately they messed up the bill and we got charged £10 more than we should have.

    They have a great 3 course for £11 deal but they didn't mark this down when they took our order. it was a shame but it didn't detract from the great food.

    We have always heard that the Peacock at Owler Bar had a great reputation for food and decided to call in for Sunday lunch late in the afternoon.

    Whilst busy, it wasn't necessary to book a table and the atmosphere is homely and welcoming. We looked at the extensive menu and the specials board, facing a staggering choice of courses. Disappointingly though, the two main courses we wanted to order from the specials board were no longer available, so we had to sit and rethink our order.

    Starters were a little on the pricey side for what they were; my pate dish came with 1 slice of toast cut into quarters and my partner's crostini choice was equally on the small side. At £4 plus each, we thought they could have been more generous with the portion size (and we do not expect huge portions). However, the quality was fantastic.

    Our lamb dishes for main (£13 + each) were lovely, with sweet potato and crunchy mange tout rather than the usual veg selection.

    However, the last course let the whole meal down. Being cheese fans we both ordered the cheese board (approx £5 each). The miniscule cheese portion given was a complete rip off, especially as the whole dish was fridge cold; a one inch cube each of hard unripe brie, stilton and cheddar. It was served with more crackers than you possibly had cheese for, half an apple and a few grapes; we felt to bulk up the plate. We spent the last half hour of our meal making jokes about it. For that price I expect it to be a cheese board, not a cheese saucer and to be able to taste it.

    With drinks the whole meal came to above £60. The service was fantastic, a wide range of drinks are served, but unfortunately I feel the meal was priced above what it should be for what was delivered. We will return, but stick to a main course only as it seemed the only one providing true value for money.
