It is without doubt a proper pub and has views over Matlock - proper old school two halves of bar and snug. Ale quality is good but it is still a GK house and limited to their 'list' - and not a solitary local brew among them. Taylors (yuk - when are people going to admit this is now a crap beer?) Landlord, Bass, Batemans and the Hogshead TEA (which I had). Beer was nice enough but a few unusual or local brews would really enhance this place and make it worth the trek up the hill.

Ticks all the boxes in a great pub. Went with a big group for the "Pie Night" last Wednesday and were given a heads up to get there in time for opening at 5pm to bag a table as it's a fairly small pub. Wise advice as there was already a small queue building at ten to !
Had a couple of local Ruby ales as well as the ever steady landlord from T Taylor's. Busy...great atmosphere.

Recently visited this wonderful little boozer whilst on holiday in the Peaks. Best pub grub we have had in a long time, massive portions, great value and tasty to boot. Outstanding pint of Bass or 2. Very busy at lunchtime, great quirky interior and friendly knowledgeable staff. Would definitely return.

Hidden gem on the hillside above the town.

Traditional interior comprising two fairly small rooms, bar in each, books and board games available for customer use.

Called in about 6:30 sat evening, already half full, 5 hand pulls available.
Had a pint of Brimstone - nice enough, companions went with TT Landlord, claim it was the best they'd ever had!

Will make a return visit for sure, one of those pubs that just felt right!

Tucked in amongst the narrow roads up behind County Hall, this is well worth seeking out and staying a long while. The Bass here is so highly regarded it sits proudly alone in the larger (but still small) of the two rooms whilst the six other ales , mostly from the wider edges of the GK stable, jostle for position in the other smaller room. Superb views across the valleys and hills beyond. A very decent pint of Jarrow Rivet Catcher was had this time, together with a swift half of the superb Bass. Excellent.
