I have been using The Chocolate Box since it first opened it's door about 5 years ago. At that time I had a business in the village and used it on a daily basis and still return there at least once a week. Since establishing their traditional teashop, sisters Kate and Angela have developed The Chocolate Box into a focal... More

A wonderful tea room with a quaint ambiance. Tastefully decorated with wall furniture of yesteryear. Crisp clean tablecloths and napkins, lovely mismatching China. A group of us from work went on a post Christmas afternoon tea to be spoiled rotten by the friendly staff. Everything was perfect, plenty of tea and coffee, constantly refilled. Then when we were fit to... More

I visited this lovely tea shop this afternoon with friends from work. We had decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea to cheer up a cold January afternoon. After hearing how wonderful the tea was here we were definitely not disappointed, it was perfectly excellent. Delicate china tea cups with piping hot tea, replenished the minute the pots were empty.... More

The food and the service could not be faulted. With working in the village we have had many coffee and... More

I visited the Chocolate Box with friends for the afternoon as recommended by other people and I must say that I had a wonderful time there. The decor reminded me of the mad hatters tea party in Alice and Wonderland. The staff and service I received was A* and for the food.. excellent. I would highly recommend this little hidden... More

Been here a number of times in the last six months and never been disappointed. The food is excellent particularly the quiche and the Prestbury rarebit (don't ask for the recipe, it's far too good to divulge!). The staff are friendly and welcoming and the surroundings very clean and pleasant. Scones are great, too!
