We have just experienced the best hot chocolate we have tasted in our experience. Not too sweet but full of flavour - flavour choice was varied, we had one caramel and one orange. To top it off we had wonderful macaroons which again had a wide choice; husband had orange while I went for the whisky (why would I not?)

Not sure what all the fuss is about, at least if you have a "hot" chocolate. Ours was only warm and I've tasted better at well-known coffee shop chains.

My friend and I booked onto the truffle making class as birthday presents to each other. We had a great afternoon learning all about chocolate and dipping and rolling our own truffles. Ruth was a fantastic teacher and made us very welcome. The amount of chocolate you get to take home is amazing and everyone at home loved them. We... More

Not enough words to describe how yummy this was, even went back the next day. Prices were reasonable, and the cake selection was most inviting. The hot chocolates were great, but when eaten with cake became a side dish. Before we had even eaten, we saw a woman sitting on her own, as she ate some cake her smile alone... More
