See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Perched high above Matlock Town this superb two-roomed traditional pub enjoys beautiful views of the Derwent valley and Riber Castle from the heated patio area. Popular with workers from County Hall at lunchtimes and locals at night, children and dogs are welcome although cat-swinging is not recommended due to the compact nature of the establishment. Reputedly, a haunted wall clock has a transcendental approach to time in the lounge where regulars, ramblers and real ale enthusiasts convene to enjoy the atmosphere. Three permanent real ales are complemented by four ever changing guests. Homemade food is served Tuesday-Friday lunchtimes. Pie night wed 6-8pm. Lunch from 5pm on Sundays. In the Good Beer Guide 2018
