Good food, good food, very noisy, but this is a town centre pub. Good to see a mix of people here, from young to not so young. Value for money as always.

I have been to many Wetherspoons around the UK enjoying the real ales and good value food available. I have been to The Crown in Matlock many many times, as I live in the town. Unfortunately the Crown in Matlock is the most miserable Wetherspoons I have experienced. The decor is now very dated and scruffy, desperately in need of a re- vamp.the lighting is poor so it always feels dark.the tables are always dirty not helped by no beer mats, I always have to ask for them to be wiped. The most disappointing is the attitude of the staff. It is as though you are disturbing them and asking for a favpur. Many of my friends who live in Matlock consider it a place for local down and outs and give it a miss. i try to stick up for it due to the real ales but struggle. Matlock is a lovely affluent tourist town and I would have thought a flagship opportunity for a Wetherspoons establishment. Who knows how many tourists have been put off this brand by this particular pub? The food however is always good, if you can bear to sit in such grim surroundings.

Four of us had breakfast here on two consecutive days. Very good, plain food that couldn't be beaten in price.

Staff were really friendly and really seemed to be enjoying the company of the regulars and people like me who hadn't been in before? Food was typically Wetherspoons. Well priced and tasted good. Clean and welcoming.
