Pleasant all round

Matlock Bath on a bank holiday is heaving ... there are loads of takeaway fish and chips but few to sit down. We had a table outside. Service was brisk but friendly and the food came quickly. Both meals were hot though the chips could have been cooked longer. It is also licensed if you fancy a... read more

Had lunch on a day out visit to Matlock Bath. The food was excellent and freshly cooked, unlike many of the establishments which were basically fish and chip shops with seating. The waitress was friendly, efficient and very hard working. Another bonus is that the restaurant is licensed and I had a lovely pint of John Smith's with my cod... More

We actually only went into this restaurant because the chef was standing outside and 'suggested' it. Very friendly service and good food, would recommend this place.

I visited Matlock with my mum and sister today and have to write a review to tell you how lovely it is. When you think of fish and chips you want a yummy one for sure, but many seem to be at unclean takeaway restaurants whereas at Charles it is at a clean restaurant. We was lucky enough for it...

We visited here as a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. We were cheerfully greeted and sat on a large table and promptly served drinks whilst we waited for half the party to arrive. Anyway, food was great - scampi, fish, poached cod etc all beautifully cooked to order and the chips and peas were good too. All very... More

I had the steak pie which was the nicest pie I have ever had, the other 3 had fish and chips which was really tasty! The service was quick and friendly. The... More

Visited in March 2015, party of 8, adults, teenagers & youngsters. Food was very poor, chips were undercooked, fish batter was soggy & that thick in places it hadn't cooked thru. Sausages tasted as if they were deep fried, out of 6 meals most was left, will not be going again & would not recommend at all. Priced too high... More

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 !!
