Stones Restaurant Matlock
Matlock Bus Station- 2 minutes walk away
Always exceptional food and great staff been quite a few times and always very happy. Not the place for large plates of food but if you want taste and skill its ideal.
Delicious food and wine with pre dinner drinks taken outside. The service was from smiling staff and the only minor problem was when we asked several questions about the dishes on the menu and the staff member could not answer any of them. The response was ‘ I think it is xxxxx’ but no certainty. We had to ask for another member of staff to be brought over to explain how the dishes were served. Staff need to be trained about the menu. If they don’t know what is meant by the words on the menu then guests are left puzzled. This should never happen and is a training issue for Stones management.
Great tasting food, great service, nice location, good atmosphere and really enjoyed our afternoon at Stones Restaurant, thanks again to all.
Food was absolutely perfect - can’t wait to go again!
A wonderful place to celebrate a special occasions, nothing was to much trouble. The food was excellent and varied. we will be back,
Cool calm and informally sophisticated. Delightful staff serving tasty, beautifully presented food.
Fantastic service, food and location, lovely little touches with the starters and Happy Anniversary treat.
Wonderful start to the meal with drinks on the terrace. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff helping with our choices. Delicious tasting menu with excellent flavours in each course. Finally coffees and chocolates on the terrace. A really special evening for all of us.
We ate here as our holiday meal out. The drink on the terrace next to the river set the relaxed atmosphere for the evening. The service was friendly but not ‘in your face’. The food quality and cooking were excellent. We both had lamb for main course and it was cooked perfectly pink. The shepherds pie was the best i’ve ever tasted and I would happily of had just a portion of that. Excellent meal and although not the cheapest we’ve had ( and a long way from being the most expensive) was worth every penny. Good wine selection too.
The staff were lovely and friendly but also professional and understood the food and drinks they were serving. The food was amazing full of flavour and went well with the wine selection. I would like to thank the chef for his or her hard work. We will be back.
Wonderful food, great service couldn't fault our evening at Stones, will certainly return
We have been to Stones on a few occasions & it has never disappointed. On this visit it was our Wedding Anniversary & we had the tasting menu with wine pairing. This was an excellent choice & each course delivered on flavour & was presented well with great wine matches. It enabled us to try things that we perhaps wouldn’t of chosen if having the normal menu and was excellent. Would strongly recommend this. We had a really great evening & didn’t miss the train back home which is always a bonus !!!
We dined at Stones on the 28th June for my wife's birthday, the whole experience was excellent from arriving to leaving the service was second to none. Would recommend to anyone, will be back soon.
We had great meal and a wonderful time at Stones restaurant for our Diamond Wedding Anniversary. The choice for different diets was adequately catered for and the staff could not have been more helpful, it was very good all of it. Sorry though, a warning, my wife is not good walking and she had to be careful down the stone steps to get down to the entrance. It was worth it in the end! Ps. the steps are not too bad.
We all love the attentive & friendly reception & service.
We are never disappointed as the food is excellent value for money in a 50 mile radius.
Canopies are simply magic.
We are really very lucky to Have Stone's Restaurant in our neighbourhood.
Thank you Chef Stone, Jade & all the staff for a most enjoyable evening.
Tasting menu with wine flights was superb in prentation and taste. Perfect service. Looking forward to returning when menu changes in 6 weeks.
The entrees, fresh bread and chocolates were complimentary and just added a lovely touch to my birthday lunch. We will definitely be returning soon.
Fine dining at its best 👌 superb we eat here 4/5 times a year for special occasions can not fault it one bit
We invited friends from London especially to have a meal and we were not disappointed. As always the entire lunch and experience was fantastic.
Lovely evening with quiet table.
Great tasting menu
Absolutely love this restaurant, exceptional as always! Highly recommended
Fantastic from start to finish as usual. Lunch menu is great value.
Absolutely amazing food delivered to the table with outstanding service. Generous portion sizes, high quality ingredients and presentation. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great all round...as always! A must when we visit the Matlock area!
Excellent in every way, couldn’t fault any part of the meal, each course just kept getting better. Wonderfully cooked and presented superb attention to detail. Unfussy service providing a relaxed atmosphere. Celebrated my birthday here and enjoyed it very much.
A pre-Father’s Fay visit which he thoroughly enjoyed, as did all of us. Great food in a lovely environment
Visited Stones for a special occasion with friends. I liked the outside for pre meal drinks and finished off outside with coffee. The food was excellent and the choices were good. We had a very nice wine which came at a reasonable price. The service was exceptional with young staff having a good knowledge of the wines and the food being served. Well worth a re visit.
We had the taster menu which we have tried at other good restaurants. Some of the courses were good but some particular the lamb 3 ways was poor due to my small rump was made up of uncooked fat and not nice to eat. I would have expected the food to be better.
Really lovely food, great presentation and lots of additional extras that make it special. They are genuinely interested in your enjoying your meal and the food is just delicious.
Perfect couldn’t pick fault if we tried, amazing evening.
Stones were so careful with checking what ingredients were in each meal. Two of us required Gluten Free and one had a severe Garlic intolerance. The food was absolutely spot on.
An excellent dining and all round experience! The staff were welcoming and attentive, being sensitive to the fact that as friends who hadn’t seen each other for a long time we needed to catch up, taking a long time to make decisions regarding choice of meal. Once we had decided,
the food was excellent without exception. We were all very happy, had a lovely evening and though not all local, look forward to returning.
We were 6 and everyone thought it was fabulous. The champagne and canapés on the cosy Terence by the river was special. Excellent food, service and ambience, what else is to be side except do try it, you will not be sorry!
Excellent food and service. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to lately
A great ladies lunch and cocktails
We have now dined at Stones many times and have never been disappointed . We have been for lunches , dinners and for special occasions and Stones remains a firm favourite . The food has always been good but is now beyond excellent and the bar is set very high !. I hope it doesn't become too difficult to book as word gets around .
Excellent, attentive but unobtrusive service and wonderful food.
Fabulous evening once again, as regular visitors the standards never slip. Canapés, bread extra touch. Beautifully presented, tasty dishes, will always be a favourite to visit. If your a foody you must must must give it a try
Superb meal, excellent setting and staff there were fantastic. Highly recommended :)
We had lunch to celebrate our Sister in Laws birthday.The weather was perfect for drinks on the patio and the food when we went inside was excellent. Would certainly go again.
