Hodgkinson’s Hotel and Restaurant


Hodgkinson’s Hotel and Restaurant is housed in a Grade 11 listed 4-storey Georgian townhouse dating back to 1770 and the bygone spa era when the Georgians and Victorians came to Matlock Bath and the Peak District to enjoy the spa waters, walk and enjoy the scenery.

Promotional Feature

Our hotel & restaurant, set in the heart of Matlock Bath village, is a portal to the Victorian era which hits you as soon as you enter with the original wood & glass bar, Minton tiled floor, elegant small restaurant, sitting room and eight individually designed guest rooms.

We are extremely proud of our food reputation which is a credit to our Head Chef Leigh Matthews, who marries his tasty modern British dishes with the goodness of locally sourced, seasonal produce. Our 18-seater restaurant is open to both guests and the general public and provides a friendly, inviting venue for intimate celebrations and small groups or family gatherings. We do offer vegetarian options but if you do have any special dietary requirements at all please let us know ahead and Chef can make provision for you on our menu.

We are currently open for dinner or breakfast. Reservations are required.

Breakfast: Monday-Sunday 8.00-9.30am

Dinner: Monday-Saturday 6.30pm-8.30pm, closed Sunday evenings.

Come early & enjoy the ambience in the evening with a pre-dinner aperitif whilst browsing our menu in our cosy sitting room followed by a relaxing dinner in our intimate dining room, your table is yours for the evening. Our evening menu is two or three course and always features classic British ingredients, all freshly prepared to create a selective and creative array of homemade dishes (£26 two course, £29 three course). A full bar including local ales and extensive wine list is also available to offer the perfect accompaniment to your meal.

Hodgkinson’s Hotel hidden gems...Our hotel boasts its own caves for the more adventurous guest to explore, which we are told originally date back to the Romans and were used by Job Hodgkinson in Victorian times to store his own locally brewed beer. Ask us and we are always happy to show you round! We also have extensive terrace gardens where you can unwind before dinner and enjoy our view over the village rooftops, river Derwent and limestone cliffs of Matlock Bath.
