Closed - after major flooding in the area, last autumn.

Before coronavirus stepped in.

not the most inspiring spoons in the country,pretty small and cramped and very busy for a wed lunchtime,two people serving but clearly overworked as with most spoons these days,most of the ales were "coming soon" which could mean either coming soon or gone it would seem,the pint of titanic i had was very nice mind,6/10 heading over road to the Greene King place next but from what i have read on here not sure its the best plan in the world!

This pub is actually in the town of Matlock, but listed as the town of 'Crown Square' (I have pointed this out to admin).

Surprisingly good beer for a JDW, and nice food. A bit grubby though.

A good example of a decent Wetherspoon pub. Lots of good quality real ales, many of them from local micro breweries, including several from Thornbridge when I was there. Even the service at the bar was good, which is not always the case with this chain.

Great pub for ale. There was a large selection of interesting, mostly local beers and the Jaipur I had was in fantastic condition. We also had food, which was ok, typical JD stuff. Staff were nice but it was a bit irritating that the baby-changing facilities are only available if you get the staffs attention so they can let you in. If there is a queue at the bar it gets a bit frustrating.

One of the better Wetherspoons I've been in

One of the best 'spoons' around, a little gem with staff who really care, very clean and the usual great value food and drinks, can get pretty busy at times.

One of the quietest Wetherspoons I've ever visited. This is the standard open-plan layout with the usual suspects on the pumps - Springhead Fallen Angel, Greene King Abbot Ale, Marstons Pedigree & Burton Bitter and RCH Steaming Santa. Westons Organic and Marcle Hill are available for fellow cider drinkers. No real objections - the place was clean and warm.

Fairly standard 'spoons, with the usual reasonable range of real ale. For some reason there was no pump clip for the Hook Norton Double Stout, just a photocopy stuck on top of something else - a bit odd, but the beer was good. Good atmosphere in mid-afternoon, and not full of the stereotypes that 'Wether-knockers' would have you believe.

A typical wetherspoon pub that is in dire need of a clean up. When it first opened it was ridiculously busy all week, now due to its state of disrepair it has fallen out of favour with locals. The beer is poor quality but is cheap, I suppose you get what you pay for!! Food quality is sometimes very good particularly steaks and other grills. Not bad but by no means is it good.

Typical Wetherspoons pub with the usual assortment of oddballs and drunks. That said I liked it !!! Good selection of beers and friendly service

Town centre Wetherspoons, pretty much same as any other Wetherspoons (cheap alcohol, good range of beers, busy Thursday-Saturday). Some good photos of Victorian Matlock on the walls.
