We booked here before visiting Matlock, it's a good job as it was packed with no spare tables. The food was fantastic, the spicy garlic bread has fresh chillies. My partner had chicken Pasta and I had lasagne, absolutely lovely and very reasonably priced.

What an absolutely gorgeous restaurant. Myself and my partner were visiting a nearby village and decided to take the bus into Matlock to have a few drinks, did not intend to eat. We stepped off the bus opposite the restaurant as as we enjoy our food we decided to just look at the menu outside, we were so impressed we... More

The food and service seem to be slipping. The Front of House Manager appears to have left and service standards are reducing. The food quality was also poor on tonight's visit.

Great, friendly staff who made our night go really well by managing to sort a table for 8 of us on a very busy Saturday. The food was delicious. Highly recommend.

This was our 1st visit to this restaurant, my husband booked it as a surprise. Great choice on the menu and the food was beautiful. Customer service was excellent and they'd even put a balloon and a plant on the table which was a lovely added extra. Will definitely return. Thank you x

I came here last year with a Hen Party and we had a really great time so decided to go back on a weekend break to Matlock. I booked a table as they do get very busy. Although the food was nice and the service was OK it lacked something this time for me I felt as though they were... More

Incredibly slow and poor service. Which is a shame because our food was tasty. Took 2 hours to be served a couple of pizzas for our family. Was served by two waitresses. One of them was constantly sniffing with a stinking cold and the other was a gum chewing slob. Seriously grim. Will not be returning. Folk on two other... More
