Gorgeous marmalade!

Luckily, I was staying in the hotel opposite this shop. There were so many different marmalades to try I had to keep going back for more taste experiences! I loved them all. I especially liked the intense flavour of the Blood Orange marmalade. I bought the Blood Orange and 3 Fruit ones to take home, have since bought some as gifts and will definitely be buying other flavours in the future.

Found this place when on our way to Tunnels Beaches so decided to call in on our way home.

Lots of choice with some unusual flavours. Great for presents - which is why we called in.

My only comment is that with a more specialist product more knowledgeable staff would seem sensible.....at least to me.

Stopped in a little food shop and was attracted to this marmalade. I bought 3 jars to take home to Canada with me...thought I would keep one for myself and give the other 2 as gifts. None of it made it out of my house. So Good!! Selfishly, I just couldn't bear to give any of it away. Love to know if the company would ship to Canada!

We just happened across this little gem on a trip to Ilfracombe - what a find! The lady was incredibly friendly without being pushy and you could try their range of marmalades before buying. I did not know it was possible to get so many marmalades! Sadly our purchases did not last long - they were so delicious!

Not at all friendly!

We lo ve marmalade and saw several types on sale here we would have gladly bought as gifts for friends and a treat for ourselves, however the dis interest and unfriendly reception from the lady serving meant we walked out empty handed and although we visit the area and pass this shop almost weekly, we will not return to this shop!

Hello - I am sorry to hear about this! Which day did you visit on? I will look into which member of staff was working that day. You are always welcome to try the marmalades and ask questions, sometimes people prefer to be left alone when tasting so often it can be hard to gauge sometimes or occasionals the girls are busy packing orders etc x
