“Little gem”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We stumbled upon this little gem whilst visiting Matlock to see the Olympic torch. What an absolute fantastic meal. The menu does not prepare you for the delight you will experience. Not only good food, but excellent selection of beer and the staff we welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended

“Best Pub in Matlock”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

This is a fantastic little pub and probably the best for miles around. Great range of beers and food is good, cheap and plentiful. Sit outside on a summer evening and you'll have great views of the valley and good company, It's very popular with the locals so get there early. Friendly staff.
