“a real asset to matlock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We have just enjoyed lunch, with tea and cake, at the cafe in the park. We found the place a delight, beautifully converted into a lovely tea room with the added benefit of a toilet these days. The staff worked hard to make sure customers were looked after. The children who came in while we were there obviously knew the place and made welcome. We recommend it, both for quality, friendliness and excellent value.

“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Popped in here for cake and coffee on an autumnal Sunday morning. Very welcoming - huge selection of cakes, scones etc. Really friendly, very home-made. Open from 10am - and you could have a free coffe re-fill before 1130! If you spend more than £15 they will even refund your parking. What's not to like?

Fun halloween themeing - and some nice artwork on show. Really impressed!

“Selling the best of Matlock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had to do some shopping in Matlock, and parked in the Park Car Park, walking across the river and walking through the park. On our journey we spotted the cafe, it looked so quaint we thought, we'd have to give it a go. We finished our chopping and had a pleasant stroll through the park. We watched the children playing, the teens on the skate park, and the dog walkers. All enjoying the Autumnal sun, then strolled to the cafe. The girls we're really kind and sweet.
(I always comment on the kindness of the staff btw, my husband is rather ill, and I always take note of how they react to his disability.)
We had intended just to have a snack, but it was warm, and friendly, and the view was so nice and VERY English and we felt so at home we decided to have something proper.
I had a sweet potato and Spinach curry, and my husband had a pork roll, stuffing and apple sauce. And two bottles of coke.
It was excellent, good value and quickly served. So much so that had we not been in a hurry we would have had seconds.

We will heartily recommend this cafe to anyone, and can't wait to return net time we are in Matlock.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Great variety of hot and cold food,drinks etc. all at sensible prices
The cafe also has international theme nights,featuring food from across the world, you must book as these events are very popular.
Staff are well trained and very polite,also there is a decked area outside where you can enjoy the sunshine.
Also there is a serving hatch where you can grab an ice cream or can.
