After reading a couple of reviews on tripadvisor, we took the walk up the steep hill to this lovely pub. Entering the pub, we were greeted by the landlady Becky. She was friendly, attentive, everything you require. We ordered, two steak and ale pies, chilli and scampi. All of our party agreed that the meals were lovely as well as... More

Lovely gluten free meal at the Sycamore again last night. Traditional pub with gorgeous food and great company. Being sensitive to even the smallest trace of gluten, the Sycamore has been a great find for me. 10/10

visited the sycamore inn for an evening meal , it having been recommended to us. We found the menu slightly limited, so opted for a steak. It was fairly bland. Not very comfortable surroundings and people constantly walking by table as we were eating. The staff were friendly enough and ale good.

It's a walk up a steep(ish) hill to reach it, but good food and value await. There's a reasonable variety on the menu, with locally sourced good quality ingredients forming the basis of the well-cooked meals. There are good-sized helpings, a friendly welcome, a genuine desire to serve the customers, and the whole thing was a good value evening meal

This pub is a short walk outside the middle of Matlock but is well worth the walk up the hill. The service was excellent, meal was reasonably price, very tasty and we were not kept waiting. Good menu choice. Would definitely visit again when I am in the area.

3 of our party of 10 are gluten free and I had seen a gluten free specials board on the website. The owner was able to accommodate us at very short notice and when we arrived she came out to discuss the menu with our party and was happy to personalise all the dishes to each of our individual requirements....

Real English pub, complete with friendly locals. Well kept ales, traditional pub food menu, genuine home cooking by a local woman with standards. After a day's hard tourism, it was a wonderful relaxing place to spend the evening.

I have been a regular at this pub since moving to Matlock 7 years ago. I have been for evening meals, lunch and Sunday dinners and cannot recommend the food enough. If you want good quality pub food at reasonable prices this is the place to go. There is usually a mix of locals and visitors and there is a... More
