I have visited The Chocolate Shop several times this year and I can safely say that they have the best range of amazing hot chocolate and other chocolate delights. The owners are so lovely and friendly and the small touches such as cooler hot chocolate for kids makes the experience that little bit better.

Such a long list of speciality hot chocolates; I tried a 'Seville Special' hot chocolate, and it was lovely - nice to have tables and chairs outside to enjoy our drinks. Also bought some handmade chocolates as gifts - the recipients will be chuffed as they're gluten free too!

It's great that the owners have preserved and enhanced the original old features instead of just ripping them out and making yet another characterless high street café. We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back. Oh, and the... More

I popped in to The Chocolate Shop with visiting family this bank holiday and ordered a beautiful hot chocolate. It was gorgeous. Came on here to praise it and the lovely shop but the way the owner of The Chocolate Shop has replied to their customers has left me absolutely disgusted! One person didn't have a bad word to say...

Please ignore - read on....... What reviewer lilytj92 failed to admit was that she works for a local "copytetion" business who have sunk so low in their business endeavours that they try to slate other successful people without concentrating on their own failures.
