Where do you start?, we just spent 2 nights here bed and breakfast and it was a delight, a pub with food? maybe but these places are starting to impress. In the heart of Derbyshire right on the edge of the Peak District it is very well situated, the whole place has been refurbished recently and is very nicely decked... More

Booked a table for lunch today with my husband, 2 year old daughter and my mum. We were slightly late being seated but we were happy to wait as could see that it was really busy. Our drinks and food orders were taken promptly and we were asked on a regular basis if everything was ok or if there was... More

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay with friends at the Grouse and Claret. Liked the colour scheme of the refurbishment not quite so sure about some of the other features. Staff were polite and friendly. Varied menu with something to suit most tastes and food good for the price being charged. Will stay again when next in the area.

I'd rather go to the Wetherspoons in Matlock. The fake specials boards. Microwaved lamb shanks are never going to go down well. Terrible service from local teenagers who have forgotten any manners and how to smile. If you like eating off cold plates and enjoy opening sachets of sauce, vinegar and salt rather than having a bottle or shaker. Then... More

Not a hotel but a restaurant with rooms above. The room was small but clean and adequate with free Wi Fi, but it is a big chain eatery with a few rooms above. Staff totally engrossed in serving tables and outside the room no real guest facility's except dining tables. Continually treated as if we had just walked through the... More

Attended here for a Sunday afternoon after the refurbishment. I like a lot! the place looks modern, yet chic, looks traditional, yet classy. I love the rustic colour scheme and there has been some wonderful little touches added so this place now doesn't have the chain pub feel to it. Although extremely busy when I attended, staff were very helpful,... More

I have been dining at the Grouse and Claret now for a good few years. I went on Sunday the 16th November 2014, the first time since it has been refurbished. Was not impressed at all, the conservatory has been made smaller, with a walk way through to the toilets that looks like something you would see in a Zoo,... More

Should have taken notice of reviews! Why oh why change something that works? Met up a few times there enjoyed food and atmosphere. Shall not be going again food average not as much atmosphere and we felt that we were holding the staff up by finishing our drinks at 9.30. We were asked 3 times would we like our bill,... More

What a dreadful experience. What used to be a pleasant dining experience just went to dire. Nowhere to sit and drink whilst waiting for a table. Had to find someone to take order after waiting and being ignored for 20 minutes. Cold, poorly cooked food. Just drive on by.
