About The Red Lion

Everything you’d expect from a great local pub

The Red Lion pub in Bakewell started life as a 17th century coaching inn in the heart of Bakewell in the Peak District.

Bakewell itself is a beautiful and well-established hotspot for tourists in the Peak District – the UK’s most popular national park. As well as attracting tourists from afar, Bakewell also attracts many day and weekend visitors from nearby Sheffield and Manchester, as well as Chesterfield and Buxton.

The pub is situated close to nearby shops and opposite the award-winning Bath Gardens. There are plenty of activities in the area, from the local market that takes place every Monday to the stunning Monsal Trail cycle path on the doorstep.

The pub has a central bar area along with a 30-seater restaurant, lower lounge area, a dog-friendly taproom and a large outside garden area. We also provide free WiFi throughout the pub and guest rooms.
