Holding the oldest beer licence in the Matlock area, the Tavern is where the first visitors who used to walk up to the Heights would come for a well-deserved pint before heading down into the Rutland cavern. Guests today can still enjoy a locally sourced beer or cider while sitting in the raised beer garden.
All those years ago, the Tavern was no more than a small hut selling beer and bar snacks, but when the Heights increased in popularity a larger timber structure was built. This was later replaced by the building in use today.
So, before or after your tour of the Great Rutland Cavern stop, relax and enjoy a drink or an ice cream. Spend the time with your family and friends, and see for yourself why the Heights is a place that has been enjoyed for over 230 years.
