  • This shop is amazing! They make wonderful chocolate and fudge. Angela & Richard always make us feel welcome and their new assistant Dora is really friendly too. We went back several times in one...  more »
  • Absolutely brilliant! We told the lady at the counter that we were vegan and she was so helpful in picking out vegan chocolates for us to try. A really lovely experience as she was able to tell us so....  more »

  • I went to the shop on the 1st of June 2019, and I looked around, had a quick chat with the man who opened it (I was there before it opened) and then left, only to return half an hour later, and had a good laugh with that same man. I then bought a strawberry and cream, clementine, clotted cream, and lemon meringue fudges (2 of which were fresh out the pan, being homemade in house.) and getting 4 for £10, I am more than happy with that, and am defiantly going again, the fact that one can also try samples is fantastic, both for the fudge, and the truffles. I would defiantly recommend them, and should be seen on an equal footing as Lucia's and the gingerbread shop, I, for one, am definitely going again.
  • Nicest chocolate I've ever eaten. Professionally handmade mini chocolate sculptures. Loved the almond pins in Belgian chocolate and the lemon meringue. The dark chocolate with subtle crystallized pieces of ginger or the Baileys truffle are definitely up there in the rankings too. This place beats the competition from any of the lake district towns we've visited over the years. Looking forward to our return or ordering from their online store. Scott & Joanne
