Always enjoyed a pint of real ale at this traditional bar, so very sad to see it had closed when I last went through Matlock Bath. Understand that the Indian restaurant next door will be expanding into the bar, so hope the new owners keep...More

Went there last night and the pub is not a bad real ale pub at all. Plenty of choice and not too expensive. I wouldn't get too excited about the place but it's a pub. Recommended.
