Fine dining in the Peak District

Gastronomy sits at the core of our hotel. Our restaurant team have been the proud bearers of three AA rosettes – the top ten percent in the country – for a number of years.

We offer both an indulgent, fine dining menu and a more relaxed bar menu to suit most tastes or moods. The key behind each dish served at The Peacock is seasonal, quality ingredients – something Head Chef Dan Smith is passionate about. Trained by Tom Aiken, Dan combines skill and creativity to merit the awards we have achieved.

Wherever possible, we serve truly local ingredients, including organically-reared beef and lamb from the Haddon Estate. We also source beef, lamb and pork from E. W. Coates in Two Dales and Hancock’s in Stoney Middleton in Derbyshire.

Our fine dining restaurant serves our a la carte menu Monday to Saturday from 7pm until 9pm.

Our charming bar serves lunch Monday to Saturday, with dinner served Monday to Friday from 6:30pm until 9pm


On Sundays guests are invited to enjoy Sunday lunch and dinner in the bar or restaurant.

Our dinner, bed and breakfast rates include any three courses from our regular a la carte menu with no supplements.

Lunch is served daily from 12pm until 2pm (the Sunday lunch menu is only available on Sundays).

Dinner in the bar is served Mon to Fri from 6:30pm until 9pm.

The a la carte dinner menu is served in our fine dining restaurant Mon to Sat from 7pm until 9pm.

Our tasting menu is available on Fri and Sat evenings, with special tasting menus for dietary requirements available when pre-booked.
