“Excellent in every way” – Kevin Stone’s modern British cooking with Mediterranean flourishes is showcased at the pretty restaurant he runs with his wife Jade and sister Katie, perched above the River Derwent (and with a terrace for sunny days). Prices are brilliant for food of this quality, with an eight-course tasting menu at £52.
The Stone family’s stalwart “exudes class”, from its “lovely setting” on the coursing River Derwent (“the terrace is ideal for warm summer days”), to its “just brilliant” and “very well thought-out” food – coming “at a fraction of the cost of top-end restaurants”.
“Well designed and laid out” and with a “lovely terrace by the river”, the Stone family’s popular local staple strikes reporters as a “fantastic find” combining “very pleasant” service with “splendid” modern cooking.
“Tucked down steps near the river”, the Stone family’s “superb, little restaurant” boasts “a lack of pretension and a loyal following” thanks to its “serious” cooking and “informal yet informed” service.
Tucked away in the heart of Matlock, Stones is a cosy and eclectic restaurant with a stylish and welcoming decor and a superb modern British menu. Stones Restaurant is jointly run by Kevin Stone Head Chef, wife Jade and sister Katie Temple.
