“The best eating establishment in Matlock by far”

Having made many-a-visit to Peli Deli, I have never been disappointed with the food, drinks, service or atmosphere. They will make you a sandwich to your liking, even if it deviates from the menu, providing that they have the ingredients. I do like a plain ham sandwich with salad, or sometimes a Derbyshire Ham and gruyere panini, which is advertised with chutney but I ask for it without the chutney, and they do it no questions asked, all with a great smile. Their milkshakes are perfect too. The music is not too loud, lively or dreary and creates a lovely atmosphere and ambience. To top it all off, Mike, the owner, is a great guy who makes an effort to know the names of regulars and semi-regulars, like myself.

Sit by the windows if you can and world-watch over Crown Square and criticise the abhorrent driving that happens.

“Love the food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

I use the Peli Deli most weeks: it's my local. The food is great: in particular the salads are very good and are excellent value for money. And the coffee is excellent. Service is always fast and attentive. Prices are very reasonable and compare very well with other 'establishments' in the area. In the summer - we did have one briefly this year - you can sit outside and watch the world go by. In the years I've been going there they've consistently turned out a high quality product. I'd highly recommend them.

“Great food great service”

I called to the Peli Deli prior to a short walk in Matlock to stock up on fuel. The selection was excellent and the food in abundance,the staff were welcoming, and the prices didn't burn a hole. An oasis in Matlock would recommend this to anyone as the menu catered for all tastes.

“Super cafe restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

We live in Matlock but, until the Olympic torch came through had never tried the Peli Deli. I was really impressed by the service and quality. It was, obviously, very busy but our order was taken quickly and efficiently and everything we asked for came correctly and in good time. The home made soup was fabulous with a couple of chunks of home made warm bread, yum! Panini`s were excellent served with a little salad. Our only disappointment was the tea. We asked for a pot for 3 persons but got 3 individual tea pots which each hold about a cup and a half. Would have preferred a big pot. Otherwise top rate cafe in the middle of Matlock.
