Stones Restaurant Matlock
Upon arrival we were given the option to be seated inside or out as the weather was lovely. We had nibbles and an aperitif whilst browsing the menu.
Opting to eat inside and go for the 3 courses (great value) we were shown to our table. The food was delicious and there was clean plates all round.
The staff were friendly and service was excellent.
Looking forward to returning next month.
We enjoyed our evening very much. We were able to dine outdoors on the terrace as it was such a warm evening, which was the icing on the cake for us.
Stones never fails to live up to expectations. Another lovely evening of first class food, excellent service & pleasant surroundings. Impeccably clean, the layout was great in terms if social distancing & the staff as always are wonderful. Well done to everyone!
Really enjoyed our lunch on the terrace at Stones, the food was excellent, the service was quick and really friendly.
Fantastic food & service . I love to dine here , will definitely be back.
Excellent food. Lovely venue. Jade and staff all attentive. Variety of choice great. Home made bread selection cannot be equalled. M&E
Excellent!! All safety measures there but in an unobtrusive manner.Food excellent as usual.
Stones in Matlock is fabulous. Not a cheap meal but good value for money as the food and quality of service is outstanding.
Loved it . Staff lovely
Attention to detail wonderful
Ability to deal with social distancing reassuring
Went to celebrate our 53rd Wedding Anniversary and had an very enjoyable meal
Very lovely evening. Food was excellent as usual. Good COVID measures in place but unobtrusive.
Very good service. Definitely recommended. Going back soon.
In these unprecedented times it’s nice to find a restaurant in which the dining experience has not been diminished by social distancing, hygiene, screening etc. Loved this restaurant before lockdown, still love it.
Superb meal, lovely surroundings and friendly staff
More cocktail choices and another outside umbrella shade
A belated wedding anniversary - wonderful food, service, atmosphere - a real treat to be able to visit. Thankyou.
Always great, very well looked after in these very trying times. Roanna and the rest of the staff were attentive without being obtrusive and kept everything clean and socially distanced.
As always Stones goes the extra mile to make our visit special. Lovely food, attention to detail and exceptional service. Hannah, our waitress, was caring and always on hand when needed. My wife’s allergy to garlic was handled perfectly by the kitchen and she was made to feel that it was no issue at all. Nothing less than I would expect from a visit to Stones. The current difficulties were handled very well and at no time were the rules broken or bent in any way. I am glad that they are open and wish them well as we all move forward together. Thank you.
Nice little extras, such as canapés, breads and homemade chocolates with coffee.
Fabulous meal outstanding really they sould be very proud
Lovely post lockdown lunch standards as good as ever and the ambience wasn’t affected at all even with the covid measures in place.
The steps were steep. The reception was friendly. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was impeccable. This was our first restaurant visit since lock down. The respect for our personal space and the attention to cleanliness were everything we could have wished for.
Lovely food, great ambience, perfect service. They have done a great job of getting back into service.
excellent value and quality was the best ive had in and around the area
First meal back after lockdown - Stones was the perfect place to do this. Food was excellent (as always) and the temporary screens made it feel very safe. Thank you.
Lovely waitress and loved all extras canapés bread, and petit fours Felt very safe conservatory lovely.
Despite the precautions due to Covid-19, we were welcomed into a safe space.
Tara, our designated waiter, was friendly, informed and helpful.
The food was, as usual, wonderful and plentiful - with the complimentary canapes and bread a great start.
Good wine list.
Our restaurant of choice.
Amazing couldnt fault it
We have been previously but treated our friends for their birthdays. We were not disappointed. Amazing food to suit everyone’s taste... great service and some good measures in place to keep you and themselves safe.
Due to covid service is minimal and hands off which is only to be expected. Safety measures in place. Food beautifully presented with added extras that make Stones special, the canapés, breads and butters. Only downside the belly pork could have been more tender and although delicious the creme brulee was not the classic that we were hoping for.
Our first meal out since the beginning of lock down - and it couldn't have been better. Food quality and service were everything that we have come to expect from Stones; the COVID precautions didn't get in the way of a very enjoyable evening - and Stones is still incredible value when compared to restaurants of a similar high standard in London or Manchester. Big thank you to everyone at Stones.
Lovely family meal out.
I was a bit nervous about what to expect amid the current COVID-19 situation, especially having had a couple of underwhelming eating out experiences since restaurants reopened a couple of weeks ago. However, this was exactly the experience that I was hoping for and would have expected under normal circumstance from the reviews and recommendations that I had received. Would highly recommend.
Delicious food, well thought out menu choices. The star of the show was the mushroom sauce served with the steak but which was given to me, at my request, to accompany my chicken.
Social distancing measures actually improved our experience as we had more space rather than being terribly near to adjacent tables and noise levels were reduced.
We would welcome it if you could impose a 'no phones at the table' requirement as this would enhance the experience for everyone. The couple on one side of us and the party of 4 on the other side used their phones throughout the evening.
Still as lovely as ever, the changes made to the service to meet COVID-19 guidance did not hamper the experience
Under the current circumstances the staff made us feel exceptional safe and welcome.
Thank you for a lovely belated lunch for my niece.
Exceptional food and service we felt safe and well looked after which is difficult to achieve in the current situation, we asked ahead for a table on the terrace, but would have been happy inside as the tables looked to be very well spaced with doors open onto the terrace aiding good ventilation.
Despite social distancing measures, the environment feels safe, the customer service is still exemplary and the food as always, is of Michelin Star quality. Perfect relaxed environment, especially for those special occasions.
Beautiful food and attentive service as always. Love the extra touches of canapes, breads, butters and petit fours. Makes for a special occasion every time. Our first meal out after lockdown and felt completely safe. Thank you.
Pre-lunch drinks on the terrace and a fabulous 3 course lunch. Great to see the restaurant open again.
Been here a few times and as usual it was excellent. It was great to get out as not been out for nearly 4 months and felt very comfortable here with all that is going on at the moment.
