Honestly is amazing. I am in my 40's & never seen a working shop in this unique, preserved way (except in museums) Totally original, traditional old style 163 year old shop selling the most delicious chocolates & hot chocolate. Will definitely be back next time I'm back this way. A MUST SEE Where do you experience this anywhere else? Really... More

Very small shop so not much room to look if it's busy, but the chocolate is to die for and there are many choices for the coffe and chocolate I always call in this shop whenever I'm in Matlock or Matlock Bath. A little expensive but worth it.

There were chocolate covered marshmallows and... More

One of my favourite places to visit when in Matlock bath. The aromas invite you in and being a true coffee lover, there's always something new to try! This is one of the best places in my opinion you can go if, like me, you want an extra special treat to wake you up in the morning. They have instant... More

Popped in the Chocolate Shop on the last morning of our stay - the hot chocolate options are amazing, lots of choice and a bonus with marshmallows! The chocolate on sale is awesome.....I can recommend the marshmallow kebabs and the orange crunch chocolate.

Went in the shop to look at the home made chocolates then realised they did Coffees. We had two lattes and the lady brought them to us outside so we could sit in the sun, she was very friendly. Nicest latte we have had in a long time.
