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'.

Raising money for Cameron Harper
Cameron is a shy six year old little boy who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. He has a twin sister and his wish is to walk along side her. Cameron has been through so much already and recently qualified for a massive operation, which will help him to walk.
Unfortunately the government has pulled funding for this operation, so the operation is now not possible on the NHS. Because of that, there is an almighty task of raising the £70,000 through sponsorship from events and donations to get this operation done privately.
The operation is very intense and carries a serious amount of risks but this is Cameron's one and only chance at becoming independent and to be able to walk like any other boy of his age.
John Hodlin, a close family friend of Cameron, is challenging himself to a 5 day off road cycle to raise money for Cameron’s just giving page. The journey will take him through Matlock where he has chosen us as his first pit stop.
We will be donating 5% of all our accommodation profit throughout June to show our support
Please donate to Cameron’s Just Giving page, every donation adds up small or big. http://www.justgiving.com/Cameronharper
