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.

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.

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.

MoCa is a cracking bar which stands out amongst tough local competition offering a decent range of ales and always have an Oakham, Thornbridge and Kelham brewery ales on. It has a warm atmosphere and each time we go in the staff are friendly and engaging which is why despite living a few miles away it's become one of our... More
