“Great Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped at the Cafe in the Park as we just happened to be passing. Although it was only 11am they let us have afternoon tea, and it was very nice. I had a ham sandwich, my girlfriend had egg mayo, and the ingredients were all fresh and tasty. The scones and cakes were also delicious and they gave us a bag to take away what we couldn't finish. We still can't believe how much they include for the price!

“A fine jacket spud!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Had a really nice, fresh lunch at the park in Matlock. Friendly staff and lovely jacket potatoes with plenty of filling. Good strong coffee, too.

“Basic but good quality”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Inexpensive, good family place to stop for lunch if you are in the park. Close to all the children's activities such as the splash pool and boating lake.

“friendly and pleasant”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We use this lovely little cafe regularly and always receive the same friendly and pleasant service. The prices are cheap the food fresh and cheerful. Just to sit in the park and watch the world go by with a cup of tea is so England.
