Stones Restaurant Matlock
Matlock Bus Station- 2 minutes walk away
A lovely family lunch once again with friendly and attentive service from the staff. We will return
Warm and welcoming, friendly knowledgeable staff, amazing food in a cosy setting.
We have been there before. I think this is the best restaurant I have ever visited. Wonderful food, wonderfully presented and VERY tasteful. Aperitifs on the veranda overlooking the river first with artistic, great tasting nibbles. Wonderful bread and various butters at the table, plus a great menu. Coffee and home made chocolates to finish. What more could one want.
food excellent! service excellent! Was made to feel very welcome, and well looked after from their attentive staff
We were treated to the 8 course tasting menu, this selection of starters, fish mains and sweets were put together perfectly and allowed us to sample the best of Stones Food. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the staff attentive but not fussy and the gap between courses allowed us to enjoy each separate dish while not feeling like we waiting too long.
This is our go to restaurant for a relaxing evening with excellent food and service. Love the ambiance and choice of wine.
Well done Jade and team at Stones. Mike n Eileen
Gorgeous food as always. Loved the Venison and the truffles at the end were fabulous.
We visited Stones for a birthday lunch. Everything was perfect from the canapes to the petits fours and coffee. The service was perfect, efficient but not obtrusive. We enjoyed it so much we've booked again!
Excellent as usual especially cheese board! Keep it up
We visit Stones whenever we can and it never lets us down. Beautiful food, wine and great service. Can’t wait to return.
We were visiting Matlock and precooked Stones. Great food, right amount of choice. Service was very good. I’d highly recommend it.
Excellent food. Prompt service. Professional staff. Lovely outside area with heaters. Comfortable inside.
For special occasions it is perfect. X
Outstanding food as ever!
Great service, cosy surroundings and perfect place for a celebratory dinner.
Have visited Stones 4 times now and never been disappointed. Would highly recommend.
Personally I prefer a lighter starter than those offered on the menu. I struggled to match starters and main courses, however all the dishes I chose were very nice but filling to the point where I was unable to manage a sweet course.
Service was ok but we were left outside for 20 minutes waiting to be served with pre-dinner drinks.
Value for money. I thought it was on the expensive side, but will re-book because it was overall a nice experience
Always a lovely experience whether it’s a special occasion or just a treat :)
This is our 2nd visit to Stones Restaurant for the tasting menu with wine flight. We loved it last time and we think it was even better this time around.
Always enjoy our meals here, it makes a nice day out. Am going again in October!
Absolutely incredible experience, food was sensational and the service was second to none. You made our first anniversary one to remember, and we will certainly be back!
Went for our 18 year wedding anniversary. Food was very good and loved the additional touch of the chocolate Anniversary dessert.
Lovely lunch meal - tasty food and decent, good value wine list. We really enjoyed it!!
We visited for our anniversary when staying in the area.
The staff provided brilliant service, and the food was excellent!
Very enjoyable dining experience!
Thank you for the special touch at the end to celebrate our anniversary! 🙂
As always excellent lunch menu, impeccable service and attention to detail.
Very good quality food. Steak, lamb and fish of high quality & well made. Pistachio cake was unfortunately quite dry.
Would go again and recommend to others.
Recommend by a friend we were not disappointed Good choice nice riverside terrace for drinks beforehand delicious food excellent service
Fabulous experience with really creative menu. It was a feast for the eye and stomach. Lovely waitress and surprising hand made chocs after and canapés
A real treat . Superb food & excellent service . Attention to detail . A dining experience
Superb evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Weather was also kind so we could sit on outside patio to enjoy a cocktail.
Excellent always enjoy dining at Stones everything is always top notch.
It's very rarely that we come across places like this. Stones really goes the extra mile to make this a special dining experience. From all the extra touches such as the canapes and petit fours to the efficiency and friendliness of the waiting staff, you feel treated and valued. The menu is original, the food nothing less than incredible. We will be returning.
Great food great wine list and fantastic food choices, we tried the tasting menu and the wine flight, everything was absolutely gorgeous x
What an excellent culinary experience! We were given a voucher to go here and decided to spend it on my wife’s birthday. On arrival we were offered drinks outside on the terrace by the river whilst we chose from the menu. A small tray of exquisite amuse bouche arrived with the drinks. We were then quickly shown to our table. The waiting staff were attentive but not intrusive. The courses were served quickly with only the briefest wait between them and the food was wonderful. I have never had such tender pink beef!
Coffee was served with petit fours which were delicious. To cap it off a Happy Birthday plate with more petit fours and a sparkler arrived for my wife.
The meal was not cheap, but the gastronomic experience was well worth the cost.
The service was really good and the staff made us really welcome. The food was also exceptional.
Had a fantastic meal couldn’t find fault with anything. It was my birthday & they even did me a special birthday plate 🤗 Would highly recommend this restaurant
We have eaten at this restaurant several times, mainly for special occasions and have always enjoyed the food. We do not have large appetites so two courses is enough for us. The canapés and assorted bread and butters are a nice touch to start the meal with. We do think the drinks are a bit expensive but I suppose that is the same with a lot of restaurants nowadays.
An excellent quality no nonsense restaurant in an excellent location. Price level a perfect fit for the food and ambience
Excellent food as always. There is always something new on the menu and truly cooked to perfection.
Overall a superb meal, with the quality of food and presentation outstanding. All members of the party thought likewise, with the rack of lamb I had, the most tender I have ever had. Great atmosphere and attentive service to compliment.
We booked Stones as had heard it was great for a special occasion. It was cheaper than I expected at £100 pp for a taster menu with wine flight, bottle of wine, 2 cocktails and 4 beers. The food was OK, although not as special as other restaurants nearby, the toilets desperately need paint, there is no fly prevention (despite being next to the river - citronella perhaps?) and you also have to walk down some steep dark steps to get in. It would probably deserve 3/5 but I won't rush back and was definitely disappointed.
We booked the restaurant for a special occasion and requested a good table with river view. We were given what I would describe as the best view/table in the restaurant, so a really positive start.
Great staff with good service and a great choice on the menu + wine list.
Really nice atmosphere and an overall positive experience.
I would certainly recommend Stones to family and friends, and am certain my Wife and I will be back again soon.
