My husband and I love this restaurant. We go here regularly and have introduced friends and family, as we are so taken with it. I also go with my local W.I .group. The menu changes every week. There is plenty of choice and you don't feel over faced by the meals when they arrive. The lunches (Tuesdays to Fridays )... More

We booked our wedding reception at the Market Place restaurant. 30 of us packed into the Tapas Bar with all manner of dietary needs - kosher, vegan, vegetarian, no eggs/nuts, no cheese, no dairy, etc. The food, ambiance, service and price was FANTASTIC. Thank you Jo so much.

This place was a real find. Having tried in vain to find a table free in Matlock on a Saturday night in January, we booked here and didn't really have very high expectations. However, the service and food were both excellent. It is not often you get served a perfect steak that comes exactly how you asked for it. Although... More

Lovely wine, fabulous food, Despite booking for the main restaurant not the Tapas bar which we wanted we were able to swap (sixteen of us!) and had a wonderful night consuming much freshly cooked whitebait, calamari and meatballs. Great lovely, friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere and scrummy food, we love this place.

We visit this restaurant to celebrate birthdays but also for an enjoyable Sunday lunch. For £14 each, you can choose three courses of delicious home cooked food, to include a small carafe of house wine, usually two glassfulls. The atmosphere is pleasant and though the tables are close, you have room to breathe. There is always a varied menu choice,... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on a family walk but were really impressed with the quality of the food. The majority of dishes were cooked fresh and were delicious!

One of the few restaurants where we are confident we will not be disappointed especially when taking friends out for a meal. The mid week menu is excellent value for money. Food is superbly cooked and presented and served by a very pleasant team. We look forward to trying the tapas bar.

We visited the tapas bar in August and were disappointed with the meal. The portions were very small and even after a number of selections left still hungry. The staff however were very pleasant and efficient, overall tho disappointing.
