Sour Cow Matlock

Although I grouped the rest of our visit to Matlock for my photoshoot onto a single post, the Sour cow certainly deserved a post of it’s own!

Firstly – We love the name! It definitely got our attention and we knew we were going to make a stop when we were back to view my pictures the following day. It is slightly tucked away up the side street so you could easily miss it if you were passing, but there is parking nearby on the Hope and Anchor car park which is only £5 for 4 hours (shorter stays are available) 

Seating Arrangements

Outdoor seating can be found to the front of Sour Cow so you can watch the world go by while having your cuppa and reading the mornings papers, or if you prefer there is also outside seating out the back under a canopy to help keep those delayed april showers at bay (What is it with all this rain in May this year?!)

Inside there are 3 tables and a comfy chair area, we loved that the tables were actually made of (what we thinkg were actually) doors! Love a bit of up-cycling creativity! The whole interior was super cute. I love anything a bit different and this certainly ticked all my creative boxes. I wish we would have had more time to spend taking it all in.

Tea from the Sour Cow

Tea for me!

I ordered a tea and my husband had a coffee, I was surprised to get a whole pot of tea (Which would have made 5 cups!) I only managed 3 and took the rest away with me 🙂 

Then I also took away 2 slices of Lemon and Pistachio cake for my bestie – She said the slices were so generous she split each one with her husband! I noted on the day we visited she had a Vegan chocolate cake and a Gluten free option – perfect for those with extra requirements 🙂  We were surprised our whole bill was only £9 too which was an absolute bargain

The lady who served us was so welcoming and chatty, it was lovely seeing everyone coming in to grab their lunches and she took time to chat with every single one. My husband also said everything she made smelt A-MA-ZING (boo for still not being able to smell anything!!) 

And then this neon sign but just so beautiful I had to take a photo of it! To be honest I could have found a hundred things to photograph the whole place was just filled with beautiful and quirky things, much better than a copy and paste chain coffee shop!
