Cath, Malc & The Team Welcome you to The Woodyard in Bakewell

Built in 1810 as a marble works The Woodyard has a long history in bakewell.  Some  of the main  features  of the  mill  are  still visible in the restaurant.  The  glass  floor in front  of the bar  shows  the old millstream  running through  the building.  After being a  mill  for some  years  the building was split  into two sections, the  front  remaining as  a  marble works,  with the back  section  being turned  into  a woodyard. 

 The  restaurant was  formerly called  The Pointing Dog  &  Duck  but when Cath and  Malc  took  over they changed  it to  The Woodyard  as  they are  local  people  and  knew the buildings history.  

Here at  The  Woodyard we  offer  a relaxed and friendly  environment accompanied with  fresh  homemade food.  

We  also have extensive seating it our amazing  beer  garden, which is the  only beer  garden in Bakewell  which over looks the  river Wye.
