This place is amazing, there are so many different types of hot chocolate to choose from, there is something for everyone. I had the mint one with cream and marshmallows, I would definitely recommend it! Lovely place and lovely owners. Will definitely be coming back!

I went in to look at the coffees and the woman was really helpful, showed me where I could smell the different flavoured ones, chatting to my toddler and really friendly. Ordered two hot chocolates with cream and marshmallows and they were really delicious, we also sat outside under the covered seating area. The ground coffee I bought was lovely,... More

Whenever we visit Matlock we make a beeline for here. My family adore the brilliant hot chocolates served and the way they are presented with generous swirls of cream. Not being a hot chocolate fan myself it is often difficult to find somewhere we can go as a family and all be happy, but the coffees are wonderful, suiting my... More

We had a wander round Matlock Bath yesterday and stumbled across The Chocolate Shop! We are so glad we did because it's the best hot chocolate I've ever had. 18 different varieties to choose from.

We're up in Derbyshire once a year on hols but we wish it were once a month. I'm not really into chocolate but find myself spending a fortune on their fantastic range, especially the choc marshmallows . Forget buying for others, keep it all for yourself!

Bought a selection of chocolates from here to take home, after staying in Matlock Bath, all very nice. Wish I'd bought more.

We saw good reviews of this little place on trip advisor. And it was really good. A great selection of chocolate treats, hot chocolates and coffees. We ordered some drinks and sat outside waiting. A couple of minutes later we had our drink delivered and sat ready to drink. Hot chocolates were made with real cream on top and real... More

Fantastic chocolate. It is worth the trip to Matlock Bath for this place. Make sure to bring enough cash as they do not accept cards.
