My wife and I had the 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for 2 for £36. We both enjoyed our meals and the wine. The staff were friendly and looked after us well. If we are in the area again we would happily eat here again.

Tapas food was fantastic. Came as a party of 17 and we had between 2 6 dishes for £18.95. Really great value and we were all really full by the end of it. Only small issue was that if you did share between 2 some of the dishes had 5 pieces which makes it difficult to share so maybe change... More

We managed to get their last available table for four on Friday lunchtime. Despite being very busy we were served pretty quickly. The food was excellent as was the service. 3 of us had the sizzling Caribbean chicken and would highly recommend it. The puddings were mostly home made and they were also excellent. If you're in the area, this... More

We called in without booking and after a few minutes were offered a table. At the time there were only 4 other customers but it soon filled up! The waitresses were friendly and service was good. The food was excellent! Would highly recommend the sherry trifle! 😁 We had the evening offer of 3 courses and bottle of wine for... More

Staff were friendly, and one member of staff... More

We've eaten at The Market Place a few times and have always enjoyed the experience, although on some occasions when the restaurant is very busy the seating arrangement can be a bit cramped. A Sunday lunch was great value and very enjoyable. Service was good and would definitely eat there again. The only other times we been to this restaurant... More

We went to the Tapas terrace as a party of 10 people after 1p.m.on Sunday for a snack following a very pleasant canal boat trip from Cromford Wharf. The café area appeared quite inviting and the room was warm - things were looking hopeful. There were just another two people in the café so all looked well for swift service.... More

Ended up in Cromford rather by mistake, having been completely crowded out of Matlock Bath by the Illuminations hoards. The warm welcome and very good tapas upstairs in the Market Place cheered us up no end. Not quite what we had intended for the evening. But thoroughly recommended.
