Went for a day trip to Matlock. Started from Matlock train station then walked down to Matlock bath, where we had a great meal of fish and chips freshly cooked. Excellent

Nipped in for a quick lunch. Both chose jacket potato with different fillings. Took 20 mins to come and were microwaved which is a shame as I like a crispy skin. Fresh salad. A little cold in the restaurant but very clean with friendly service. Have been here several times before and it was better. Average price.
