Delightful local pub

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

We found many of the local pubs stopped serving food early on a bank holiday. This Indian restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of our B&B. We were very satisfied with the food and the service was excellent.

Yet again a friendly welcome - my wife and I decided to pop in for a quick lunch, and from the wide choice of menu, we both decided a chilli con carne would hit the spot - and it did, big time! absolutely delicious, and very nicely presented - we both agreed…'we would have that again!"

Great little local pub, within walking distance of our accom (Jewel Cottage - see my review). Tiny two room pub, totally local feel. Small selection of beers on tap but plenty for a casual night. Food selection was pretty wide - curry, fish n chips, pie, burger, steaks etc...delicious food, generous servings and friendly, quick service. Beer garden out the... More

Had a couple of very nice meals at his attractive former coaching inn while staying at local B&B. Friendly welcome - I'd booked ahead for the Friday and the landlady was reassuring about us arriving after they had intended to close the kitchen. Excellent local ham off the bone, beautifully cooked chips and nicely kept beer. Deservedly busy on both... More

We stayed in the area for a few days and decided to eat here based on the good reviews. At first glance it's not much of a restaurant, it's a simple pub with decor to match. The menu is on a blackboard and is all of the usual pub classics. However, I thought this place was great. The staff are... More

Sometimes what you crave is some nice honest British food cooked really well for a reasonable price in a cozy unpretentious pub, and that is exactly what we got here. The pies were almost solid with meat and the steaks were both tender and cooked to perfection. Combined with friendly staff and and decent beer this was a truly great... More
