This shop is a little gem filled with sweets going back to the 1930s. I cannot recommend highly enough the decade boxes as birthday gifts. Excellent service and great value.

This is lovely place with lots of sweets and chocs from over the last 60 years. There is an old style cash register, loads of sweets and chocs to choose from complete with countless glass jars behind the counter. Great fun

Never make a visit to Lincoln without going to goodies! This is a very small old fashioned sweetshop that wouldn't look out of place in an episode of last of the summer wine. It has an old country sweetshop feel to it, once inside you...More
