Visited Matlock for the day and nipped in to MoCa for a drink, great selection of beers and real ales, well priced. Loved the decor and atmosphere of the place and will definitley have a return visit, to sample more ales.

Fantastic as always, the Angus burger 200g complete, with fríes was up to the expectation and beyond. Especially with the view and the breath.

Saw this pub has we were driving passed and thought we would visit. The place is nice and well kept with a nice decking area outside. But I wouldn't remember it well enough to revisit it in the future

Absolute gem. Nice chilled out place for a drink and really good value with good beer selection. Easy to see why is the CAMRA pub. Called in for a last pint on the way to the station and will be back again.

Used as a meeting place for a hen party! The staff were amazing when I rang to organise, they offered to go buy balloons to decorate the area for us. We did not have to purchase any meals or offers before we arrived, like a lot of other places wanted us to do. Everyone decided what to eat when we... More

The MoCa Bar is actually more of a modern-style pub, not what you would normally call a "bar". It is bright and friendly, the decor simple but attractive, and it appeals more to the clientèle you would normally find in a traditional real ale pub. But since The Railway Hotel is under renovation, the The Boathouse has been turned into... More

We dropped into MOCA by chance, after deciding to go to Matlock for the day. The service was exceptional, the food was some of the best that I have tasted in a pub for a long time. Two kids (7 & 10) were catered for beautifully, with a small Sunday lunch and a beef sarny with extra salad cream!! Sunday... More
