The pre-season spring optimism of Ray's review was sadly missing when I paid an autumnal visit this week. Only three beers on and no cider, and I really didn't feel in the mood for either of the local beers that were on at the time of my visit (a "coffee chocolate stout" from Dukeries and a "light bodied, pale, crisp and refreshingly citrus summer ale" from Howard Town), so ended up with a half of Sharps Doom Bar before catching my train. The pub was very quiet mid-afternoon, though there were a few people enjoying the sun in the garden beside the river. This former multi-roomed pub has been opened up, necessitating a pair of hefty pillars holding it all together just inside the door. The long bar is centrally placed and, pillars aside, this has the ambience of a traditional pub, just without the walls. My beer was well kept, but there's no disguising what an unambitious beer it is in terms of taste.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Midland

A respectable well kept pub, with a jolly and welcoming barman. This is a traditional style pub with the bar facing you as you enter. The pub has some coffeted ceilings near the front entrance and the large Georgian sash windows let in plenty of light. The pub is also carpeted throughout and has a pot shelf above the bar. Five pumps including a Rosie's Cider. I went for the Blue Monkey BG Sips, which was in great shape. Other beers on were one from Black Hole Brewery, Doombore, and Dunkeries. I was disappointed not to see one from Peak Ales, as it is supposed to be a regular.
The outside bench seating was a plus, enjoyed watching the trout jumping under the bridge, close to where we were sitting.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Midland

Well-located Enterprise Inn in the middle of Matlock Bath, with a comfortable 'U'-shaped bar, conservatory dining room and riverside terrace overlooking the Derwent. Pool table. Four real ales (including Derby Penny's Porter at £3.40) and a cider available from the five handpumps. Remains worth a visit if in the area; but, if anything, I thought the place was more welcoming than my previous visit five years earlier.
