Fed ten of us on a walking holiday at very short notice. Great food, great service, great beer. Unfortunately not open for food on a Sunday otherwise we would have gone back again. Mike

We booked the Sycamore based on TA reviews. It wasn't my first choice, but because our trip was last minute, other options were full. Actually, we were glad because from where we were staying (Duke of Wellington) the walk into the Town centre was very steep and given the shoes my wife was wearing, would necessitated a taxi back..! Anyway,... More

Visited Matlock with a group of friends on a walking holiday and dined twice at the Sycamore Inn. Its a good job we were walkers as it is worth the steep climb to the pub - down hill on the way back! The food was lovely with plenty of choices for vegetarians. We should have got there earlier on our... More

This was our first time to Matlock and we found the Sycamore Inn on TripAdvisor. This is a smallish local pub, but packs punch when it comes to good ale and good home cooking. There were 5 hand pull ales on when we visited - a must for a beer lover. prices were reasonable. The food was excellent quality and... More

Delicious pint of St Austell Spring brew with a generous portion of fresh hot food - perfect on a wet May evening. Nicely busy local pub with views over beautiful Matlock. Warm atmosphere. Friendly service. Highly recommend!

Firstly, it was only a very short walk from our B & B. It is very much a local pub with a good selection of well priced ales and food. But for me the best part was the imaginative selection of vegetarian options, both on the menu and on the specials board. Also, some of the puds are served with... More

The pub is tucked away up the hill in Matlock in a very quiet residential area but was very handy for where we were staying. There were a number of good ales and a varied menu plus specials on the board. We went on quiz night (Wednesday) and had telephoned to reserve a table which was a good thing as... More

This pub is located in the hills above Matlock, within a residential area. It has a varied range of beers and a large specials board as well as a fixed pub food menu, at reasonable prices. Seven of us ate there one night whilst staying at the nearby Robertswood Country House. We were also pleasantly surprised to find proper english... More

This is a proper old fashioned pub serving great homemade food at very reasonable prices. Very family friendly. No food Sunday evenings as the local boules tournament is in full swing Easter to October. Very convenient if you are staying at the YHA or Sheriff Lodge B and B
