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.
