The hot chocolate is great. I love the Seville special. I drive to Matlock just for a hot chocolate from here. I recommend it to everybody. Only problem is not being able to pay by card.

Found this by chance while strolling round Matlock Bath. It’s set in an old pharmacy and is very quaint inside. There’s a big selection of flavoured hot chocolate available (as well as the usual other hot drinks) – we had the unflavoured one, topped with whipped cream and marshmallows – very nice indeed. There’s also a huge selection of chocolate... More

This is a cute, old fashioned chocolate shop but it definitely wasn't the best I've ever been in. They don't accept cards which is pretty irritating this day and age, I had to draw money out in the arcade which charges you. The hot chocolate was very nice and the bits I brought were very yummy! I brought some chocolate... More

Very nice and unique place. We bought a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and it was very tasteful. So nice that we could not stop drinking it. We also bought white chocolate with Lemon merengue and it was/is mouth melting. Delicious. Recommend a stopover after a meal or a hike.

I saw the sign outside for a cherrylicious hot chocolate, that was enough to draw me in ;-) whilst in the shop I noticed a lovely range of chocolates and flavoured coffee's, I ordered my hot chocolate and purchased a few more bits, the lady was very nice and helpful in helping me decide on so much choice!

Very disappointing, the hot chocolate tastes thin, like it's made with water and not milk. I've been twice now in and out of season, so I know they cannot blame it on the day been too busy for them to make a proper drink. I thought it was also very expensive for such a horrible taste. Sorry don't try it.... More
