British
Tucked away in the heart of former spa town Matlock, Stones is a cosy restaurant serving modern British cuisine. The restaurant’s interior is smart and intimate while the kitchen marries British produce with recipes inspired by international cuisine. Don’t be fooled by the apparent simplicity of the seasonal lunch and dinner menus, every dish demonstrates the culinary imagination, technique and flair of the vibrant kitchen team, led by head chef Kevin Stone. The additional tasting menu offers eight courses partnered with a carefully selected optional flight of wine. Catering for all dietary requirements, Stones offer distinct vegetarian and GF menu. Diners can enjoy views overlooking the coursing waters of the River Derwent. Discreet, informed service with an informal approach, allowing the food to take centre stage, Stones is one of the finest dining experiences in the area, carrying two AA rosettes for culinary excellence. ***Visit www.stones-restaurant.co.uk for up to date menus.***

    Our evening celebrating our wedding anniversary was truly spoilt by being seated between a party of 6 very roudy people, they were in and out leaving the table for a smoke and then a party of 4 even more noisy. We couldn’t have a conversation because we couldn’t hear each other. We booked in September, looked forward to it for many months. Because we’ve been before we thought it would fit our need for a romantic meal, romantic atmosphere - sadly not. Not what we expected in Stones .

    An exceptional experience from start to finish, every single member of staff so was lovely and very attentive they're a credit to the business. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings and there wasn't one course we didn't enjoy. Cannot wait to being people back!

    Would have scored 5star throughout if they hadn’t charged us for drinks/cocktails that we hadn’t ordered……..it spoilt the whole occasion for us ………….”you never get a second chance at making a good first impression “ ……such a basic error to bill drinks to the wrong table.

    The service was good. We had the set lunch where choice is very limited but we were happy with this. The vegetarian had a choice too - the dishes weren’t just an add on as is often the case. What made the lunch special was the little tasty items which weren’t on the menu. They just appeared. There were smoked pork bonbons with smoky ketchup and tiny cheese tartlets. We also had a tiny portion of soup and some homemade butter. There was a good selection of wines by the glass.

    Excellent meal with my wife in a delightful setting . Both being Pescatarian we opted for a hybrid version of the vegetarian and regular tasting menus that Stones were only too happy to accommodate. Price means this restaurant is for special occasions but Stones don't disappoint.

    Really enjoyed our visit to Stones last night. The service was awesome and the food incredibly tasty. A party of 6 behind us were very jolly and maybe a bit louder than we prefer but it’s Christmas and they were having a good time. Will definitely visit again.
