Went for our 5th wedding anniversary , food was excellent !! Very well sorted with the covid19 rules and staff brilliant with a good knowledge of the menu. Food brought to our table when we were ready, never felt rushed. Compliments to the chef and thanks to all the staff for a fab meal.
Another lovely visit to Stones on a trip to Matlock.
Great food and lovely atmosphere. Service was friendly and helpful.
Absolutely no complaints.
Would definitely eat here on a regular basis if I lived locally
Excellent food and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the little extras provided, delicious canapés and petits fours and all three courses were delicious and well presented. I felt very safe as there were steps in place re. Covid. The only minor issue I have is that the decaf coffee had no flavour.
100% our favourite restaurant in the Peak District! We've been going back for years and the service and food is consistently great. Upscale without being stuffy, with as much style as substance.
Always a wonderful experience at Stones. Felt safe and confident about their safety measures
Very good for special occasion- excellent personal service
Never disappointed with food or service
Have taken appropriate Covid19 protective measures
As always we really enjoyed our evening at Stones, great food, excellent service and very welcoming staff.
The food was the best both me and my girlfriend have ever had. Each course was perfect, quality and value for money. The extras they give you with the canopies and breads along with the bottled tap water they keep bringing over is amazing. Most resteraunts want you to buy drinks to increase the margins but Stones focuses on the customer and the customer experience. The waitress was amazing.
We visited Stones for a special night out to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted by the server who looked after as for the entire evening. The restaurant is intimate, romantic & by the river in Matlock. I have a nut allergy & the restaurant couldn't have done more to make me feel at ease, adapting some of the options on the menu, so I could still have what I wanted to order.
I had the Salmon starter, Chicken for the main course with the Lemon & Lime tart for dessert. The food is just simply stunning to look at & tasted amazing. They even added a special Anniversary touch to our meal, making it that more special. My husband & I were so pleased to have had our Anniversary meal at such a lovely restaurant & can't recommend enough. Thank you Head Chef, Kevin Stone & his team.
First time visit for my family of 4, excellent food and atmosphere was perfect. Slightly more expensive than expected. Thank you
So pleased we booked for dinner at Stones for my husband's birthday. Delicious, interesting food and very generous portion sizes!
Staff were lovely too. Great evening.
Our first visit to Stones and it won’t be our last ,everything was lovely 😊 I
Excellent service and food as always. Can’t wait to go back
It was our first eating out experience since lockdown. Stones have made changes to the seating arrangements which made us feel very safe and the staff, as always, were very attentive, courteous & professional throughout the evening. The food was delicious and of the very high standard that we have come to expect here. It was our friends first visit and they loved it. Thank you everyone.
Booked a meal for two with a friend, the ambience was lovely, the restaurant has put good measures in for social distancing between the tables, it felt very safe. The food was incredible and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Would and have already been recommending to anyone I know. Only downside for us was waiting 20 minutes for the bill
If you want to go somewhere which is consistently good fine dining , this is the place .. beautiful decor , attentive staff and a wonderful menu
Fantastic lunch and even accommodated space for our baby in the pram
we enjoyed the whole dining experience.
the staff were very well trained and attentive
the food was exquisite
can't wait to dine here again
Always a good meal. Service and quality superb. Will definitely be going back.
It was a very cold welcome upon our arrival, the staff were not at all friendly. no conversation whatsoever other than to ask how was the food and would you like any other drinks .
There wasn’t any atmosphere there at all just quick service and to say that staff are clearing up tables and steaming whilst your still dinning is unprofessional and uncomfortable making you want to rush and not relax and enjoy.
I would not recommend to anyone if you have difficulty with stairs or are costar phobic as the tables are boxed in with wooden panels rather than perspex which would allow more light and not so confined within your space.
Was disappointed that we had to send a main course back as the pork was raw in the middle. On arriving home we also had upset stomachs.
Delicious food, a real treat! The extras of Chefs choice canapés and tasty bread and butter made the meal seem even more special. It was the perfect mother/daughter time to complete the summer for us!
As ever, all consistently good. Could have ordered anything on the menu, and I'm sure it would all have been just as good as what was ordered.
Great attention to detail for Covid safe dining, attentive staff and the normal excellent lunch offering. Stones remain our restaurant of choice, glad you're back up and running.
Lovely restaurant in Matlock. Great response to COVID with staff constantly sanitising hands and wearing gloves when placing cutlery etc.
Food is very good with some amouse nouche, bread and petit fours served during the meal. Service is super, warm, friendly and efficient without being over bearing. Overall great value and would certainly recommend.
Definitely recommend this small little restaurant for exceptional food, first class service
and value for money. Visited on a lunchtime in August and can't fault anything about the experience. It isn't the first time I've visited and it won't be the last. I had the risotto and steak dish which were amazing. Absolutely love Stones risotto and the steak was the best I've ever had and cooked perfectly. My husband had the haddock starter and steak which he also thoroughly enjoyed. I'm also a big fan of the treacle bread.
Would recommend Stones for lunch especially if you fancy something a little special. Celebrated our birthdays and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I would have given 5 stars for imagination and quality. My only nit-picking was the (probably unintentional) raw vegetables with the sea bass. Crunchy raw courgette and almost raw saute potatoes didn't work for me with the delicacy of the fish. I would have gone for something simple like mustard mash or cooked carrots. The colours looked pretty though!
Maybe style overcame substance on this rare occasion - otherwise excellent and recommended
Always an enjoyable experience at this top notch restaurant from entering to leaving never disappoints
Just incredible. The atmosphere, the service, the food, the staff... all just simply amazing. What a place and we can’t wait to come back!
Excellent food, great staff, felt very well looked after and Covid safe. Would recommend.
Everything up to the usual standard - great to be back.
Can’t fault anything about our lunch location, atmosphere and most of all food all superb.
One of the best lunch experiences we have had in a while.
We were lucky enough to sit out on the teraace in the sunshine.
The Rissotto was the tastiest we have ever eaten.
Everything was exceptional from the food to the service.
Fantastic food. Excellent, efficient and friendly service
As ever , a fabulous meal enjoyed by all. Inventive food well prepared and presented, good service. Always amazed that it is such good value.
Amazing food. Fabulous experience yet again!
Testimony to the quality of the food that it was full despite other venues offering up to £10 off.
Excellent food, friendly staff in beautiful surroundings
An excellent experience all round. Drinks on the terrace with canapés followed by a superb 3 course lunch inside. The presentation, quality and innovation of all the food was faultless. We enjoyed wonderful wines and the service was perfectly paced and genuine in its warmth and friendliness.
We will return again and again. Thank you
Great value for money and service was impeccable. Food was delicious.
