Great find !

We were approached by the owner on the pavement Turkish style to enter ! Appeared to be clean and staff friendly. Haddock was beautiful with no too much batter and plenty of mushy peas, even had a cider each to wash it down. Two empty plates !!

We called in here at about 7.30pm for take out fish and chips. The place was empty except for us and the staff. Although we had a little difficulty in ordering 4 haddock and 2 portions of chips, the staff were helpful and keen to get the order right. The fish was lovely and the batter just right. The chips...

Reading the other reviews here, our experience didn't match. We were seated quickly but had to wait over an hour for our food. ( as did a number of nearby tables) When it eventually came it wasn't exactly hot, warm at best. Disappointing and really wish that we'd chosen one if the other nearby options instead. Wouldn't recommend and we... More

Firstly got to say the cod was very nice, white and not over battered. However the chips were a little dry and didn't have the chip shop greasiness we all pretend we don't like but secretly do. I think the vinegar was watered down because I couldn't taste it. They do tell you that the fish is not frozen and... More

We were visiting Matlock Bath for a music gig at The Fishpond and were looking forward to some fish and chips for dinner beforehand. We haven't visited Matlock Bath for a while so didn't have a specific chip shop in mind. Charles restaurant is very nice to look at and after walking past we decided it looked good, more comfortable... More
