Overpriced tasteless food (not worthy of the good location). Owner wears a long sleeve shirt outside of his trousers (classless).

Went here for breakfast. Have to say the owner has manners that leave a lot to be desired. Food not that good although freshly cooked. Won't go back in a hurry!

Of course we all go to Matlock Bath for the Blackpool-in-the-Peaks thing, but when you've had enough of the tat shops and ice-cream, I'd say pop along here for a classy cuppa on a table that is not made of plastic. Very helpful owner, and a comfy sofa with colouring books under the table for the kids - ahhhh, bliss!

We booked this place during the Matlock Bath illuminations so there wasn't much choice. Our expectations weren't high on the basis of what I'd read in other reviews. It was okay enough. The room was clean and the bed comfy. The bathroom felt a bit unloved. Overall the place needed a thorough redecoration. The owner's welcome left a lot to... More
