We chose to eat here as we'd eaten here on our previous visit to the town. It still is the best for fish and chips with plenty of space for dining, both inside and out. Lovely portions of hot tasty food. Will definitely be back :)

I've eaten here several times now with my mother and each time the food and service are excellent. My mum is on a low fat diet and so we have steamed cod with a jacket potato and salad. All the fish is cooked to order and the quality is excellent. I would recommend this over any other fish and chip... More

We stopped here whilst on a visit to Matlock Bath and were happy we chose here to eat. The selection of meals on offer was plentiful and exactly as we had hoped. We had fish and chips and also a combination fish/scampi and chips, all with mushy peas. All the meals were good portions and were lovely. Both the fish... 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

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 beer. Good all... More
