The worse meals ever we have had plonked in front of us, both the appearance of the staff and food were rotten. What a shame for Matlock we were so gutted we got back in the car and drove back down the M1 having only just arrived for a couple of days visit.

we were very disappointed after eating here. Chips were obviously reheated and not up to temperature. The fish was dry and chewy. The curry sauce was watery and had no flavour. Matlock Fish Bar doesnt have to try hard as they obviously rely on a steady supply of visitors to the Peak District, My advice is to walk that little... More

I have got chips before here and they are really nice but the fish is not that good or anything else! I would definitely visit again as I could go for a walk in the park!

My husband and I visited Matlock today and decided to give this chip shop a try we normally eat at matlock bath but recently have been disappointed so thought we would have a change. The fish was delicious with brilliant batter. The chips were lovely to it was a good size portion and very filling. We will visit again. 😊

On a tour of my native county, I was in Matlock at about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon (May 17th). Breakfast was in Bakewell and about five hours ago, so I was hungry. I walked past the Matlock Fish Bar and paid my first visit to a Wetherspoons for some time. Disgusted by the way their prices have rocketed, I went... More

We go there occasionally and usually eat in. Yes the seating is fixed, but to be fair, its not a big shop, there isn't a lot of room. The food is always hot, never had a problem with that, or miserly portions and the staff always greet politely with a smile on their face. They are always nice to the... More

Good honest traditional take away fish and chips. Choice of sitting inside too, although this time we didn't. Food was hot, fresh and tasty. Good value, and friendly service.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review on our fish bar, I remember your visit to the fish bar very well indeed, the staff were exceptionally helpful towards your family and food was fresh as it was served within seconds of cooking, I know you were upset about the prices of sauces from the way you rudely shuck...

I've used this chippy for years having lived in Matlock most of my life and the only thing that lets it down is the consistency of the fish quality (in particular the cod), sometimes you can get an absolutely delicious piece of battered cod, nice and crisp with fleshy white meat, other times the same fish can be a bit...
