Spent an enjoyable evening at the cafe's Thai bistro evening where we were treated to a lovely meal with a selection of starters, a Thai curry and a really yummy desert. We were looked after very well by the staff who were very attentive. We will certainly go to a bistro evening again!

With a lovely location, really friendly staff, amazing high quality food, value for money- prices and the ambience of a homely decorated heritage building, this cafe has got it all. We had lunch but the bistro evenings seem to have a popular reputation as well. Cakes, breakfasts, lunches or just a coffee this is a fabulous place to spend time.... More

Matlock's Hall Leys Park is lovely in itself, with the River Derwent running through, and a delightful children's play area. But to find such a lovely cafe there too, is a real bonus. You can stay inside in the warm, or sit outside and watch your children play, or just the world going by.

It's was very welcoming in here, the staff couldn't be more helpful, came here for bistro night and wasn't impressed with the food for what we payed. It was very average.

We came here for breakfast and really enjoyed it. We both had full English, complete with tea, toast and orange juice. The food was delicious and the service was as quick and friendly as usual. This establishment is highly recommended, whether it is for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and cake or indeed just ice cream!
