Staff were unfriendly and the fish had to be the worst I've ever tasted

Me and my mum decided we would call in today for some lunch. There were to lads behind the counter talking to each other and I was asked what we wanted. I ordered two fish and peas. It wasn't very hot when I started to eat it and could smell something like bleach. The peas we're florescent green... read more

This is a nice eat in chippy. The staff were nice and they had high chairs available too. The eat in area was decorated for Halloween 👻 which our boys loved. Especially the meowing cat 🐱. All I had was chips 🍟 both my boys had sausage and chips and my husband had fish, chips and peas. Which all went... More

I regularly visit a car boot sale near Matlock with my daughter, son in law and their three young children. On the way back we always call at Matlock fish bar as their sausage, egg and bacon breakfast baps are superb. They stop serving breakfast food at 11 00 so we usually get there about 10 45. However last week... More

After a busy day walking up from Matlock Bath, meandering through the antique shops, the Wednesday market, and a long linger in the park for the kids, feeding the starving hoards was in order. 3 adults 5 kids and 2 dogs. Chips were so bad they made everyone over 6 feel ill. Greasy dry hollow luke-warm chips, that even the... More

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. 😊
