Enjoyed a well cooked meal for two. Traditional setting in a busy atmosphere which helped the experience. Food was nicely presented and the house red wine polished off. Portion of ribs was extensive. The lamb shank fell off the bone. Lovely.

We had succulent steaks with seasonal vegetables, all nicely cooked. Nothing pretentious, but certainly nothing to disappoint. Parking isn't easy.

We booked last minute for 4 people just as we fancied a steak and this place had great reviews...it certainly lived up to the excellent comments we'd seen. The steaks were great, cooked perfectly and service efficient and friendly. The restaurant appears a bit old style ( or is that retro?) but the food is fab!

My husband and I love this place and visit whenever in the area and are never disappointed or come away hungry. Good is amazing and fresh. Chips are the best. All waiting staff are lovely and friendly and attentive. Place is cosy. Love it.

... people like this place with its friendly and welcoming service. However the vegetarian options, while being welcomed for at least being listed offer a lasagne and moussaka which no Italian or Greek would recognise. Carrot and sweetcorn have no place in a lasagne and aubergine needs frying before adding to a moussaka or it remains nearly raw and inedible.... More

We have had many a Sunday Roast in the Market Place Restaurant in Cromford and also the full English Breakfast in the tapas bar at the back. We can highly recommend the food, and they cater for gluten free as well. Very polite staff, excellent service and excellent food at good value for money prices.

Despite not having a reservation their welcome was excellent - found space (somehow!). Great menu, each course ordered was high quality and beautifully presented, and the service was exceptional throughout. Now we have found you, we'll be back!
