ROB Camra left this review about Rose Cottage

Not open at its advertised time on a Monday, but when we passed 45 minutes later it had just opened and we were the first in. Small room to the left as you enter, another small room with the bar just to the right and yet another small room to the right of this. A friendly welcome, despite the barmaid still tidying up from the previous session. Three handpumps on the bar, two on, including Bradfield Farmers Blond which was in good nick, although it's not a personal favourite. Several walkers came in soon after us and ordered food, so they were doing alright. I doubt that we'll ever visit Matlock Bath again as the whole place is run down and a real disappointment, so this will be a one off visit to this pub.

A surprisingly small pub with two rooms either side of a small corridor leading to a narrow and steep staircase. A quick glance to the left showed a further room that-away, but the bar was to the right, also small - not much more than a hatch, really - with three hand pumps. Old Speckled Hen was on one, nothing on the third, so I went for the second, which was Bradfield Famers Ale. This was unobjectionable, but only NBSS 2.5. I was charged £2.50 for a half, and boy am I glad I didn't ask for a pint. I sat outside even though it looked like rain. I took my glass back, the licensee thanked me, I opened my mouth to ask where the toilet was situated and he told me "top of the stairs" before I'd even spoken. There's a board on the front wall of the pub advertising this pub to let. It seems to me this guy can't wait for someone to take over - he's clearly had enough.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Riva

This pub was reported closed from the middle of December last year, so obviously Marston's have got new tenants. The pub is housed in an attractive looking mid 17th Century building, with large Georgian windows and a handsome looking front entrance, obviously added at a later period. The interior consists of three separate rooms, one of the rooms featuring a nice fireplace and the bar was situated on the right up some steps. The majority of the customers use the front patio in good weather. Two ales on handpump Wychwood Hobgoblin and Marston's Pedigree.
