Stones Restaurant Matlock
Quite excellent food and service. The place for a quiet, special occasion
We took friends here for a special birthday meal and everything was excellent!!
First class food, service and lovely ambience!
Never been disappointed in Stones and will continue to go back!
Excellent as usual, never disappointed. Menu has good choice and ample portions.
Really enjoyed our experience. Top service and outstanding food. Très bien
As always an excellent evening. The food is superb and the staff very charming. It is nice to enjoy a very good cocktail whilst choosing your food and the wine list comprehensive.
This restaurant deserves to be in the Open Table top 100 restaurants as I cannot fault it.
We continue to go to this restaurant despite it not being too local, but it is so worth the journey. We always enjoy the excellent food, quality service and relaxed atmosphere. We will continue to revisit.
We enjoyed our meal very much. The little tasters had very hard rye bread. My sparkling water had a very peculiar taste but everything else was fine
Really enjoyed our lunch. Delicious, high-quality food (even the bread was amazing). Friendly, attentive service. If ever we’re back in Matlock, we will try to visit again.
As good as it's always been. First class food and service. Warm relaxed atmosphere
Sensational seasonal food in a lovely setting with friendly attentive service.
Delicious as always. So nice for a special occasion
My Wife and I have been eating here for a few years now and Stones has to be our favourite restaurant in Derbyshire if not the whole of the midlands.
Outstanding! We really enjoyed our evening, the food is amazing. We will definitely be returning
Stones met our expectations yet again. The service was attentive again and they have a way with taste, texture and presentation that would be difficult to match. There is nothing to match it in our locality.
Consistently excellent presented dishes. The range of dishes, textures and seasonal produce make this restaurant outstanding. I recommend all the time.
Amazing food and service. Excellent value for the quality.
The food was excellent, great choice for meat eaters and vegetarians. Wine list varied with something for everyone.
Fabulous tasting menu with excellent wine. Staff are so lovely and attentive without being intrusive. Wonderful meal every time we’ve been!🥂
This is the second time I’ve been to stones in the past month. Last time for dinner, this time for lunch. Once again a faultless experience. The lunch menu was excellent, amazing flavours, great price. I took a friend who hadn’t been before and she’s already booked to go back again. 10/10.
Four of us went for my birthday everything was lovely.
Again a night of great food. We had sung the praises of Stones to friends and so it seemed appropriate to book a table and introduce them to the delights. We were not disappointed
An eating out experience rather than just dinner at a restaurant. Nowhere else like it round my area as far as I am aware.
Beautiful food let the restaurant know before hand that you are vegan and they will prepare a beautiful meal.
Chef Stone accommodated better than expected, my wife Susan's Gluten Free & Vegan Dishes.
She never felt she missed out on anything.
Overall, a Lovely Lovely meal had by four of us. We never had less than a most enjoyable meal at Stones.
Look forward to the next.
Thank you Jade, Chef Stone & all the staff.
Barbara, Pete, Sue & Abid.
Birthday get together
Great food. Fab service. Would highly recommendto friends
Excellent service, ambience and food. Access to restaurant down steep concrete steps......not for the less able! Would highly recommend for special occasions.
We had a thoroughly fabulous time from start to finish. The only thing that disappointed us was that the duck wasn’t as we were expecting confit of duck leg. It was a little tough but otherwise everything was fabulous. Can’t wait to visit again.
Went for a birthday treat and everyone loved what they ordered, will definitely return.
Food was great, lovely atmosphere and friendly, attentive staff.
Had the taster menu and every course was amazing and delicious.
Visited on Sat 3rd Nov. We have visited this restaurant many times and it never disappoints.
It offers great value for money and the food is excellent.
Stones is fantastic. Great food, very good service. Very reasonably priced superior wine list. Overall excellent value for money too.
Stones Restaurant is, in our view, the best place to dine in this corner of Derbyshire. Service is friendly and efficient without being intrusive, and the quality and presentation of the food is of a very high standard. The wine list is comprehensive and realistically priced. Prices have been increased for the new Winter Menu, which means that Stones is becoming a restaurant for those special occasions rather than for that spontaneous decision to eat-out, but the well balanced and varied menu will tempt us back.
Excellent tasting menu with friendly, efficient service. However, I would expect better quality wines in the 'wine flight', given the cost, and also expect slightly larger quantities. I appreciate the need to provide tasting quantities of the wines over seven or eight courses, but most of the servings we had were 'stingy', and were noticeably further down the glass than the restaurant used to provide. The current tasting menu is geared towards white wines. Previous tasting menus have been more balanced, with three white wine courses and three red - the latter including the cheese course. This time, sadly, the cheese course had been relegated to a paid 'extra', with which I assume one would have had to pay for one's own extra glass of red wine. So, larger servings of better quality wines, and a more balanced tasting menu, please. We will be back, however, that's for sure.
Final comment, nothing to do with the cuisine: Do you think anyone will ever say, 'I'm not going back to Stones because they don't play background music'?
Excellent meal once again, in lovely relaxed surroundings. Fantastic value for money and attentive but unobtrusive service. Highly recommend!
Excellent restaurant. Food top notch, good selection of drinks, staff friendly and informative and overall great value for money.
Highly recommend and will return when back in the area.
Excellent food and excellent service, lovely for a treat or special occasion.
My wife and I recently visited Stones for the first time as a belated anniversary celebration. We arrived 15 minutes early but our table was ready and we were seated straight away. The staff were friendly and service in general was spot on. Canapes were brought out, then not long after, a selection of breads and butters. The food is outstanding, beautifully presented without being pretentious and utterly delicious. Highly recommended.
Excellent food , great atmosphere and amazing service
