Make a beeline for this place.If you are parked at the cable car end ,this is further along the main road. Super mixed fish and scampi,freshly battered.No prepacked scampi here.Quick service and very friendly service.

Had a guy out side that basically pushes you in to the shop always saying everything fresh! Food was ok but very over priced, can go to riverside over the road for a bit cheaper! Always talking very rude and not in a polite manner to staff can always hear him! Staff always look really tired and run down. Will... More

Would maybe help if they had a proper door leading to the kitchen. Also really cold as they leave the door open. I atually put on a coat while I was there. Asked... More

There are plenty of places selling fish and chips in Matlock Bath, most of them had the fryers in the shop but this is a restaurant. Had to have fish, chips, mushy peas, curry sauce and bread and butter - they do have a more extensive menu - but this was wonderful and just hit the spot. Spotlessly clean. Staff... More

We ate at this venue after being greeted on the street outside by 'Charles'. He was gently persuasive and friendly. We both ordered fish and chip with a cold drink. It was a tasty meal, the fish especially plentiful and yummy. The venue seats around 40 inside and more outside. The decor provided a pleasant atmosphere.

Today we called in at Charles Restaurant. We ordered our meal, and when it came it was so disappointing the chips looked like they were warmed up chip shop chips and the pie had obviously been nuked in a microwave. The price was restaurant pricing and take away standard. When it came time to pay they only take cash!!! There... More
