Welcome to the Duke Of Wellington
This beautiful 19th Century former 'Drovers Inn' and 'working farm' now finds itself a cosy, traditional country inn set amongst two beautifully large beer gardens. Built in 1866 the 'Duke' has all the character and charm of a traditional country inn, built in Derbyshire limestone with slate roofs, roaring log fires and extensive gardens, our pub is well worth a visit.
A Great Place To Dine in Matlock
Our inn has been redecorated, relatively recently, in a country style that provides a warm and comfortable atmosphere for both drinkers and diners alike. The menu is simple and traditional with a big focus on traditional pub favourites and our 28-day-aged Derbyshire beef that gives us a wide selection of steaks and grills.
The extensive floral gardens offer comfortable seating areas, as well as a fully enclosed heated patio area overlooking 'Riber Castle and the Derwent Valley'.
