Visited this restaurant while on holiday in the Peaks on recommendation of other visitors. The ambiance and the service were first class. The food was beautifully presented, well cooked and good value. Very worth a visit. The couple on the table next to us arrived later and had quite a long wait for their food. Ours was timely and we... More

I have driven past the Shalimar hundreds of times but this is the first time I have eaten there. The service was very attentive and considerate, the food of high quality and everything I am my two retired friends could have asked for. Quite honestly this was one of the best meals out I have had for years.

Since we moved to Australia, I have been literally yearning for the Shalimar: the amazing special Naans (seriously try one!!!), the Tandoori Chicken Massalla... well, 18 months since we left, a trip to the Shalimar was a top priority! It was as amazing as ever. Roll on Christmas for when we return again. But it would be better if you... More

We are local and stopped in for a takeaway today, but have had several deliveries to our home previously. Today was the first time I'd ordered in the restaurant to take away though, and we had our young daughters with us. They brought out a dish of mild curry sauce for our daughters to sample and approve, a really nice... More

Visted one evening whilst staying in Matlock on an Easter break .. Marvellous experience . Very friendly and helpful staff . My son is new to curry , and was sent over a taster pot , so he could see if he liked the one he chose. A very welcome touch, which added to a very nice meal indeed. Highly... More

I asked if they had a decent ale and instead of being told that they were a restaurant, not a pub (Which is what I usually get.), I was given a choice of local bottled ales. Food was also top quality as was the service. The staff was friendly and attentive without hovering. Excellent family friendly place. When we asked... More

Thank you for your fantastic review. We are delighted you thoroughly enjoyed the experience that The Shalimar offered. The real ale that we have is one which is locally brewed on the Chatsworth estate and is the one we choose to support our local businesses. We are glad it only added to your experience.
