I was out taking a walk in Mathlock Bath and saw this pub. Went in for a beer and found that they had quite a good selection of real ales.

Nice place for lunch and pint of real ale on a cold damp day. Decent menu, particularly the artisan bread. Pleasant gastro pub type interior with two real fires. It was fairly quiet so no problems with service. Relaxing lunch away from the plethora of fish and chip shops.

Saturday dinnertime was my entrance here. A large choice of guest beers and ciders. The place was fairy busy with a full beer garden and full bar. Again only one girl serving which is the fashion of Matlock for some reason this kind of puts the pleasure off this lovely derbyshire place .

Its great to see this iconic pub back to its best. Its had a complete refurb throughout and looks brilliant, each corner of the room seems to have its own character. I went for a drink around 9pm when a band was playing, it must have been a party or a xmas party or something but the atmosphere was great... More
