September 2018. A lovely relaxed lunch by the river. Our inspector enjoyed the delicious breads and the seared mackerel in particular!

Negotiate the steep steps down to this small riverside restaurant and head for the front room with its floor to ceiling windows. Unfussy, modern British dishes are attractively presented and display the odd Mediterranean touch.

The restaurant is light, airy and elegant. It’s small but doesn’t feel cramped. Not only is it perfect for romantic date nights and family occasions, it’s also an impressive spot for a business lunch.

Stones lies in the heart of Matlock on Dale Road in the view of Matlock Bridge. Due to our beautiful location, we are unable to offer off-street parking. Perhaps the best option is to park at the nearby Matlock Train Station a little further along Dale Road – there are almost 200 spaces.

The charges, at the time of writing, are 0-1 hours £1.30, 1-2 hours £2.20, 2-3 hours £3.30, 3-4 hours £4.40. All day £5.50. The train station car park is just £1 after 6pm in the evening.

Due to our riverside location, there is no disabled access to Stones restaurant. Indeed, access to the restaurant is down stone steps, so please be aware and careful.
