It was time to book our 'Christmas Do' again and after a quick vote it was going to have to be back at The Cafe in the Park, Matlock as we all enjoyed it so much last year.

Once again the food was gorgeous (we opted for the Italian Bistro theme again) and as before all our dietary requirements in the party of 20 were met, to include, non-vegetarians, vegetarians and a non-vegetarian who couldn't eat garlic. Our requests were met with a 'no problem' and everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

I can thoroughly recommend The Cafe in the Park for fabulous food at a great price, the cafe was decorated beautifully and the service was second to none, nothing is too much trouble for Kate and her staff. Also, it's lovely to have the venue as private party, just like being in your own home (but better cooking!!) One of our party who had never been before is seriously thinking of booking it for her family she enjoyed it so much.

So if you are ever in Matlock try the cafe even if it's just for a sandwich or a coffee and cake (the afternoon tea is highly recommended too!) pop in, you won't be disappointed but if you want a different venue away from the usual restaurants in town the Cafe in the Park does a great night out!

This is the third consecutive year we've celebrated our girls Christmas dinner at cafe in the park. The food is superb, all cooked to perfection, served piping hot and delicious. Every attention to detail and such fantastic value for money. Thank you all for making our evening so memorable!

We visited this lovely little Cafe last week on the way home from chatsworth. We had our daughter with us but she was in no mood to actually go into the cafe. I sent my husband and mother-in-law ahead of us to give me the opportunity to try and get my daughter to follow shortly. But as soon as we set foot in the Cafe she made it clear she does not want to be there. I was just about to leave with my screaming daughter, and no lunch, when one of the members of staff approached us with a basket of toys and books. She presented a peppa pig figurine and immediately she had a winner. I was able to go back to the table with the basket of toys and have some lunch myself. I was very pleased I was able to get some lunch because the homemade soup and sandwich was beautiful and great value for money. My husband and mother-in-law both had a hot special and said it was certainly something they would return for. What may have turned out to be a hungry afternoon for me turned into lovely day and lunch. This cafe is highly recommended not just for its food but for it's great customer service too.
