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. I had a caramel hot chocolate with cream and caramel sauce and my friend had mint milk chocolate with cream and marshmallows! We plan to... More

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.

Visited for the first time this week, it was a lovely warm day and although I'd usually associate hot chocolate with cold weather I had one anyway with cream and marshmallows and I'm so glad I did, it was delicious. The shop is lovely, it's set out beautifully and the chocolate we bought to take home tasted just as good... More

Have stopped in a number of times, my wife adores the hot chocolate and it is a fantastic accompaniment to a walk along Matlock's 'front', especially in British weather. We have also purchased various coffees and treats and have enjoyed everythign we've bought.
