Our family decided to stop here, we had missed the demonstration for the day but the lady was more than helpful and allowed us to watch an 8 minute dvd about the factory and how it operates and what it makes, very interesting. This was a great place and the product was delicious and reasonably priced. (Brought a lot) would... More

The factory looks like a store in 1990s. This makes it surprisingly peaceful to browse through the factory, especially when visitors can walk into the kitchen and watch honeycomb making process. Must try dried banana coated with carob!

We frequent this little place regularly.. It's always so nice and sometimes they are making their products whilst we are there.. The carob is quite tasty.. Plenty varieties to chose from!!

Free entry and tastings. Family run attraction where you can literally see the chocolate being made. Was once a banana drying factory, hence the name. Very friendly staff full of interesting information - even created a short video to watch on the process. Treats were all delicious too!

This place was interesting and unique. If you go between Monday to Friday ,you can watch the candy actually being made. Saturdays they are open,and you can look around and there is a very short film to watch,that just takes a few minutes. Its closed Sundays. Its a very small place and quite old,but is interesting to visit. A lovely... More

It was interesting to see how chocolates and honeycomb is made. We were able to watch chocolates being made and taste test the products. The people were friendly and explained about the business.

This free attraction is family run and they are so passionate about what they do. We arrived and were the only ones there with no scheduled tours, but the owner went and turned the machines on to show us how it all works. There is a lot to taste for free both Carob and Chocolate and their prices are really... More

This was magic. The very welcoming and friendly staff show how they make their honeycomb and you are free to ask questions and sample their wares. The product is classic in style and very well priced and you don't feel like you have to buy something. Its a pity this place isn't advertised more as my family found it both... More
