We were staying nearby for a week and went to the Sycamore Inn a few times for meals and drinks. It was great to have somewhere with such nice bar meals and a good atmosphere so close by, which was individual and not part of a chain. Everyone welcomed us and it was great our dog could come too.

This is a nice, relaxed, unpretentious and unfussy pub with friendly bar staff. Food was served quickly, portions were very generous and it was delicious. Very good value. An added bonus were the stunning views as its on top of the hill!

We visited as a family party of 11 adults and 3 children. The pub is very cosy, if a bit cramped. The food was perfectly acceptable without being in any way outstanding

We've been here twice for food and both times it has been fantastic. Becky's Pasties are amazing, full of flavour and certainly won't leave you hungry! The staff are very welcoming, as are the locals.

Hidden little gem! Fantastic meal, great atmosphere and service was excellent. Will be highly recommending. Enjoyed it so much because of the atmosphere, service and food that I have booked my 40th birthday here. Well done Sycamore

Whilst staying in Matlock we found this lovely pub tucked away up the hill. A cozy local for some, but also a very friendly place to eat and drink for visitors. We enjoyed good traditional pub food. The home made steak pie, made by Becks the landlady, was outstanding, probably the best we'd ever had, packed with chunks of tender... More

Becks couldnt have been more welcoming in sorting out a great night of food and drink for 18 friends from all over the country . After a long day on the river her home made pie and trimmings was incredible . Perfect real country pub .

Four of us nipped in for a quick bite yesterday lunch time and really enjoyed ourselves. As it was to be quick we each had some freshly prepared egg sandwiches with a side salad and a bowl of chips. Very good indeed, good service, warm fire on a cold day and a drop of dark ale that was nectar. Warm... More
