Late afternoon and busy with folk both inside and out, luckily we found a free table in the left side bar. Shortly after it was standing room only in this popular locals pub offering superb view across the moors.

Bang on 12pm opening time and already a couple of customers in. Well worth the steep climb to find this twin room timewarp pub however this visit was badly timed as the cellar was under refurbishment thus only 1 beer on. I liked this pub and aim to return in the summer.
Greene King - Morland Old Speckled Hen4.50PoorServed up ice cold perhaps down to the cellar being unavailable at present.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 3JQ.

Perched high above Matlock Town this superb two-roomed traditional pub in Jackson Road 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.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 7 different beers and tried 2 of them.
