The White Lion - Bakewell


SquareMeal Review of The White Lion - Bakewell

This handsome old stone hostelry in a pretty Peak District village not far from Bakewell comes complete with a cheery welcome, good beer on tap and cosy rooms warmed by open fires. But standard pub grub? Well actually, no. You’ll find fish and chips and gammon steak on their ‘pub classics’ menu, plus Guinness-braised beef with horseradish mash and meatballs with linguine. But elsewhere, there could be smoked chicken, chorizo and red pepper tian, a glorious rib sticker of salt beef hash with fried egg and homemade tomato sauce or confit duck leg with caramelised red onion tarte Tatin and prune purée. Portions are of the trencherman variety, so a warm lemon and almond sponge pudding with clotted cream is perhaps best avoided if you’re planning a walk in the stunning Derbyshire countryside.
