Stopped for a quick coffee and sandwich. Much cheaper than their neighbours but very good service and fresh food. Recommended

Booked this last minute as everywhere else in Matlock bath were full and we didn't want to miss out on a bank holiday weekend break in this lovely town. Paid extra for the ensuite room but were really disappointed. Although sheets were clean the rest of the bedding were grubby, worn and ripped. The room was tired and worn ,... More

Having stayed in the Old Bank Cafe B&B for one night (thank god) we was exposed to air fresher after air fresher to hide the musty smell of all the rooms, the bedding was worn and ripped and the duvets being very thin where dreadful and old. The owner is... More

The staff was very rude, sounded racist(I may be wrong), but no manners at all. The person had no manners to talk and kept saying does not care. Amazing. Just two days in to UK and this rude attitude does not reflect well.

Ate here for breakfast when having a day out with the husband for our anniversary. Host was welcoming, pleasant and courteous. Lovely relaxing surroundings and atmosphere. Vegetarian breakfast was lovely and large. Husband has a sausage and egg barm and enjoyed his. Coffee was lovely and host offered us a free cup on the house. A lovely gesture. Prices slightly...

I've been calling into the Old Bank every other Sunday morning. I take my 80 year old Mum, who absolutely loves the place for around the last five months or so. We arrive around 9.00am have very nice, mild coffee and used to have toast until I discovered their awesome home made cakes. The Victoria Sponge is delicious. It now... More
