The cafe is in the perfect location, it's packed with fab atmosphere, the food is great (you should try the pavlova - I rek I could actually eat the whole thing!!) and the service is excellent. Me and two... 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!

On a day out in Matlock we came upon the Café when walking from the car park, it looked nice & inviting especially on a damp, dismal November day, on entering we received a friendly welcome. We ordered 2 soups, a sandwich & drinks, the food isn't cheap but the soups were homemade & both were delicious, the sandwich was... More

From J Boy of Derby This is a fantastic cafe in a beautiful park. The ham rolls are beautiful they certainly give a large amount of ham in the roll. Gets very busy especially summer weekends when the band is playing, but I have always found the service to be quick and efficient. Plenty of tables and chairs outside, this... More
