Stones Restaurant Matlock
A wonderful place to eat representing good value for money. Lovely service too. Really brings some much needed fine dining location into the area and differentiates from the countless 'pub grub' locations. Great location by the river, would go again to try the other bits on their menu!
I thought the food unimaginative with to much pulled meat!
Bar staff very noisy, alarmingly, no staff wearing masks in a small restaurant which was to warm!
We tried the winter tasting menu and it was superb. There were so many tastes and textures throughout. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was beautifully presented and the whole experience was first class. Good selection of wines and the reds were served at the correct temperature.
All in all a memorable evening.
Fabulous experience, food, service, staff, everything
Great restaurant, good food , nice ambience and great service.
Excellent in every way
Well done Stones for providing an exceptional relaxed dining experience
Excellent food and service in a friendly atmosphere with helpful staff. Quiet - so we could hear each other speak, unlike many other restaurants these days. The tasting menu is well-designed with interesting wine pairings - which work well with the food. A lot of thought has also gone into presentation; top marks for the chefs.
Excellent food and service. Would have scored higher if ambiance was better. A bit cold and bright lit in the restaurant. However, will revisit and try the tasting menu.
Had a fabulous lunch at Stones for my wife's birthday we had a lovely time , the food was amazing and so was the service , Staff were attentive and really looked after us.

Beautiful meal as usual but service was good but a little slow.
Excellent venue which we have been on many occasions.
I have been to stones restaurant a few times , but today is the 1st time I've been for lunch , I booked for my wife's Birthday & I must say it's been a great experience the food , service and Atmosphere were excellent I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone give it a try but make sure you book well in advance as it's very popular & once you've been you will see why
A really enjoyable dining experience. We look forward to visiting again, thank you.
The attention to detail with waitressing through to the food is outstanding. More an experience than a meal out.
As always, a perfect lunch experience in every way
Can't fault a thing. Fabulous service, and every course on the taster menu was just heaven
I have never been disappointed; the food,service and ambience are always fabulous. We book here time and time again.
Excellent food and very attentive staff. Will definitely visit again
One of the joys of coming to Stones is the 'extras' - the canapes and the amuse bouche. These were as good as ever and a great introduction to the main event. For the first time I was disappointed in the choice of only two starters on the new Winter lunch menu (risotto or turnip soup). My wife and I both chose the saffron risotto. There is always salt and pepper on the table at Stones but the seasoning is always spot on so they are rarely needed. In this case, however, I found the risotto overly salty and there is little you can do with that.
For mains my wife chose the halibut and myself the slow cooked rib of beef. We both thought the portions were a tad small - for example my wife had 3 tiny cubes of potato as her vegetable. Both dishes were, however, beautifully cooked with the highest quality ingredients. The beef was melt in the mouth tender and fully flavoured. The service was, as ever, top notch.
My niggles are trifling and we look forward very much to our next visit.
This is our second visit in 2 months and we live 34 miles away! Well worth the drive.
Beautiful restaurant. Amazing food. Staff very friendly and attentive
Beautiful venue, great menu and attentive staff.
Very attentive staff, good food and will visit again
Really wonderful restaurant. Exceptional food and service
Went for the taster menu and as it should it pushed us beyond our comfort zone into some wonderful and some challenging tastes and textures as well as some outstanding comfort staples. Wonderful evening…..and the 750ml bottle of beer served in a cooler lasted the meal for one of us….great idea.
Food and service excellent, can’t wait to visit again!
All round good, a lot of salt though in the mise en bouche
Lovely atmosphere, nice welcome from very friendly staff. Food was excellent though the menu was limited. The canapés between courses were delicious and included in the price of the meal. Great venue for a special occasion.
Food was very very good. Service superb. Only comment was that the wine flight didn’t have enough variety.
Simply stunning again. Never fails to be anything but amazing
We had the tasting menu which was well presented and flavourful, we were basically brought tasty morsels of food at timely intervals for 3 hours which was lovely, we are regulars at stones as it is the best restaurant nearby. We will be back!
Very nice food, good service and value. Nice Friday lunchtime treat
Absolutely fantastic. I’ve been waiting to dine at Stones for ages and it did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely faultless- the food, the service, the drinks, the ambiance- I just couldn’t knock it. Please please if you are considering it, go. You will not be disappointed.
Our first visit too stones! Absolutely beautiful meal! Will definitely be returning! Highly recommended!
Quiet lunch with a University colleague.
Great location and pleasant ambience, with friendly and helpful staff.
Both had the scallops with the oriental broth of lemongrass and chilli. Just amazing flavour and the scallops were crisp on the outside and just cooked on the centre, so perfectly cooked.
Main was Halibut, similarly cooked with the heavenly mash and spring onions and fennel, garnished with colourful unknown leaves.
The Vouvray was excellent and complemented both fish courses
