We say…

One of the most famous locations in the Peak District National Park is the small market town of Bakewell, well known for its delicious puddings. Located in the centre of the town is the stylish Rutland Arms Hotel and its restaurant, The Square. Within easy reach of local attractions such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, the restaurant is an ideal spot for those exploring the Peak District to stop off for a bite to eat, and is open to both residents and non-residents of the hotel.

Set in a beautiful Georgian building, local legend dictates that the Rutland Arms hotel is where Jane Austen penned some of her most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice. Retaining its original limestone brickwork, the hotel and accompanying restaurant is one of the biggest and most prominent buildings in Bakewell. Inside, the Georgian feel has been retained through the use of furniture, light fittings and wallpaper. Old, open fireplaces give the restaurant a grand feel, whilst large windows provide plenty of natural light.

An impressive menu focuses on fresh and seasonal local produce, supporting business and farmers in the area and allowing diners to taste the best of what the Peak District has to offer. Light bites, such as burgers and paninis are served from the bar throughout the day, with pub classics like fish and chips or sausage and mash available for those visiting Bakewell over lunchtime. In the evening a fine dining menu is served, including the likes of pan fried duck and wild mushroom lasagne. A wide and varied daily specials board is available on request. Of course, there is a traditional Bakewell pudding available for dessert.

The Square at the Rutland Arms Hotel is a lovely venue for those exploring the Peak District to stop off for either lunch of a fine, local sourced evening meal.
