I had breaded plaice for my main with chips and mushy peas and tartare sauce it was really really enjoyable. Husband had chicken curry & he enjoyed his too. I would happily recommend... More

Steep walk up to the pub gave us a good appetite! OK going home downhill. Food home cooked and plentiful. Reasonable prices, good beer.

Called in on a Wednesday afternoon and received a very warm welcome off the couple behind the bar. I had the steak pie, which was one of the best i've had in a long time. It's also a dog friendly pub and our dog Ben enjoyed the treats he was given. Would definitely recommend.

First of all we're very sorry your experience on Friday night didn't meet with expectations. To address the pie issue, we have recently been requsted to add a smaller portion of pie to our menu to cater for pensioners and children, who cannot face our 'doorstop' size evening portion. If you feel that the portion was not large enough for... More

Visited the Sycamore Inn with a party of nine people and two dogs. Excellent range of ales and beers. The homemade food was superb along with the service from barman Andy. Highly recommend stopping by when visiting Matlock.

We were part of a large party booked in on relatively short notice for a family groups 50th birthday. We were so impressed with the customer service and thoughtfulness of the staff. The youngsters were fed first so they didn't have to wait too long. The menu choice was exceptionally good for a pub and the pie was amazing. All... More

We were staying at the sheriff lodge down the road so decided to walk up to the sycamore inn. It's a lovely pub, quite cosy and friendly. We had the pie of the day which was chicken ham and leek, and the rib eye steak. Cooked beautifully and tasted great. Would definitely recommend!
