This hotel and restaurant is a real find. The interior is quirky and welcoming and both the food and staff lovely. We stopped by for an early evening meal after a walk in Matlock. The welcome was warm as was the interior on this chilly day. We took some seats close to the fire and enjoyed a few, well-presented, drinks whilst we waited for the restaurant to open at six ( though pizzas are available all afternoon. We were made very welcome and enjoyed lovely food from the unusual and varied selection on the menu. Special mention to the game pie - made with suet pastry which really hit the spot. Another special thing we noticed was the more unusual choice offered for the veggies - which makes a nice change. Would thoroughly recommend this place

Visited for Sunday lunch and the menu choice was excellent. We chose roast beef and the roast turkey which came with lovely choice of veg. The wine list is varied and good value.
Worth a drive out and we would visit again.

The greyhound hotel serves delicious food the goats cheese and beetroot tart, and the corn fed chicken was divine ; excellent service; staff very attentive, they source fresh local produce, my first time for a visit highly recommended. I hear the freshly made pizzas made in the pizza oven are well worth a visit for also. I will definitely be calling again. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for any occasion. Superb !

We went to the Greyhound for the first time for Sunday lunch (6 adults & a baby). The staff were really friendly and did not seem to mind at all that 2 of the party were half an hour late! The baby was quickly provided with a high chair. The service was spot on and we all enjoyed the food. One member of the party was a vegan and was catered for without fuss, although as is usually the case, she had no choice of dishes.
Parking was in short supply and some members of our party had to park elsewhere.
We shall definitely return.

Very good friendly atmosphere as soon as we walked in from all the staff. Shown to a table and left with menus. Return after 5 minutes for order. Sunday lunch arrived after 15 minutes with tureen of vegetables and gravy jug. Meal was very good, my husband would have liked it a bit hotter.
Overall a great Sunday lunch/afternoon.

It has become quite expensive of late and the portion sizes have diminished quite considerably you simply have to order extras to make up a decent meal, limited menu.

Previously been with friends and enjoyed it however very disappointed with my recent visit to celebrate my sisters birthday.
Taken to our table but I then had to go to the bar for drinks and to ask for menus as the waiting staff congregated around the bar.

I had to keep asking the staff for more wine glasses as three of ours were visibly dirty, more drink and to clear the table.
We asked for butter which was brought to the table in a dirty pot which we had to send back.

I asked to speak to a manager who appeared to struggle with dealing with a customer giving constructive feedback as it appeared to go over his head. I did point out that I felt it was better for me to raise my issues with him than though social media however he appeared most perplexed by the conversation!

The main issue I had was that my sister ordered a fish main , sea bream I think however when the food arrived she was given a risotto made from a smoked fish. When she told the waiter she had not ordered the dish he said he was aware of that however they had run out of her choice and instead of asking her what she'd like as an alternative they decided for her!

When it came to the bill they had charged us for all meals however as they totally messed up my sisters meal and birthday celebrations I was not prepared to pay for her meal.

We take our reviews very seriously and thought we had resolved this in person with you on the day. We apologised, we didn't charge you for your sisters meal and the wine she had. Our recall of your visit is slighltly different to your comments, but we would like to close the issue. You had said that the food was very good and that we had messed up on some service issues, also that this would not stop you from visiting again.

Booked for a meal before a wedding. We were late and had a timescale which the Greyhound easily met. The service was friendly and efficient. My husband and son both had the pie which they both loved!!

Great food, simply served by friendly, welcoming staff. Food cooked excellently with obvious care and attention snd plated unpretentiously. Choice of local beers also well worth a try. Genuinely a lovely experience which could not be faulted. Also impressed with the extra care made for the Coeliac member of our group. Thank you for a lovely night out.

We booked a table for 4 for Sunday Lunch on a recommendation and were not disappointed. Great food, well presented, and good service. We had a variety of starters, all perfectly ok, but the main event in the form of the beef and chicken roast dinners were excellent. Easy to recommend the Greyhound.

We went for dinner at the greyhound with some friends. We were a party of 7 with our dog. We were warmly welcomed and seated at a lovely table. The decor of the restaurant was lovely and everything was very clean. The food was amazing - I’ve never see such big and succulent burgers and the vegetarian choice was delicious too! The staff were so friendly and we loved the fact it was dog friendly- our dog is part of the family and it’s so nice to be able to bring them with us. Our only other comment is that the price of a gin and tonic was quite steep. Other than that everything was great!

I was very pleasantly surprised at the combination of excellent service and excellent food, in contrast to my experience of dining here during the last two management regimes.
It is very good to know that The Greyhound now provides a level of hospitality commensurate with the World Heritage Site within which it sits. I have put a glowing review on Trip Advisor

Went for sunday lunch following a recommendation from the 2 people i was with. They had roast beef, i had roast pork. The amount of beef was much smaller than previously but the quality was good. The pork was not roast pork but 3 small thin dry grilled rashers of pork. The veg was good however. I didn't complain about the pork so as not to spoil the occasion, but will not be returning.

This was a last minute find and what a find! The staff were immediately friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was absolutely delicious - especially the gradvillax and the goats cheese roulade - and the cheese board was to die for! The decor was tasteful and relaxing and the outside courtyard with views of Cromford and the surrounding cliffs and hills was delightful on a hot summer evening. Even the ale was excellent! 5 stars

Curious to visit following its refurbishment, we visited the Greyhound after a long day's walking in the area. We were not disappointed! The staff are welcoming and attentive, the general ambience is good, the seating comfortable and the food was excellent. Not the most comprehensive menu, but each dish was flavoursome and very well prepared. Service was prompt and professional without being intrusive. We have tried almost all the restaurants in Cromford and this one stands out as the best. Overall, a highly successful and memorable visit that we will repeat and will recommend to friends without reservation.
