Looked Too Good To Eat!
Nov 2021
Our visit was specific to the Maple chocolate shop. My friend and I came in out of curiosity but were delighted by the huge array of products. We loved the artisan chocolates, each one individually hand make and looked almost too good to eat! I could only afford a box of four but I’d have picked up more if I could! On a side note they also sell a range of vegan chocolates too so everybody can participate. Highly recommended for a gift or even just for a little self treat :)

Thank you Maple for your incredible service. Delicious chocolates delivered for a birthday. Rachel went that extra mile to get my chocolates to me on time. Can’t thank you enough. I’ll be calling into the shop soon for some chocolates for myself!

Unwilling to help
Oct 2020 • Solo
SHOCKING! UNFRIENDLY STAFF, UNWILLING TO HELP ME.
I always pride myself in helping local businesses especially in uncertain times we currently find ourselves in but clearly this company does not value loyal customers and clearly does not need support. I will never shop with yourselves again and shall take my custom elsewhere.

Hi Cerri. You’ve failed to mention why I was unhelpful and it’s because I couldn’t exchange a pair of earrings you didn’t want. If I can refer you to the policy; Earrings, make-up and toiletries: these items can’t be returned for hygiene reasons and this may be extended to items such as underwear and swimwear. This is not just our policy but a worldwide one as I and my colleagues explained to you on the phone. You even said you understood the policy so I think it’s very unfair for you to say those things about us. We ALWAYS help where we can and are very lenient with a lot of exchange issues but unfortunately earrings are one item I cannot bend the rules for for the safety of all our customers. We absolutely value our loyal customers which is why we offer a very popular customer loyalty scheme. I think your comments are very unfair as legally we are not allowed to exchange earrings.

My favourite chocolate shop!
Jul 2018 • Solo
I popped into Maple today to look at their new selection of chocolates. There are so many lovely chocolates to choose from, including a wide selection of high quality dairy free chocolate. Staff are so friendly and helpful and we shared lots of laughs while I chose some delicious chocolate treats. I'm enjoying using the new reward card and I'm saving my points so I can buy a box of my favourite RHS dark chocolate rose and violet creams...mmmh. You get points from all the Maple shops in Porthcawl, as well as lovely products, friendly faces and staff who are genuinely interested in making sure you get what you want, like soy wax candles. Also I'm liking their biodegradable bags as I'm trying to reduce my plastic waste. If all that doesn't tempt you...in this sizzling heat, they have air conditioning! Well worth a visit!

A trio of shops....
Jul 2018 • Couples
Hubby and I visited 2 of Maple's 3 shops in John St when we were on holiday in sunny Porthcawl last week. I particularly liked the Alice in Wonderland ornament in the gift shop but it was over-priced @ £99.

In the chocolate shop (which was nice and cool), I liked the novelty choc bars but I couldn't purchase any as they would have melted in the heatwave as we walked back to the caravan.

The staff in both shops were welcoming and friendly.

Easter Eggcellence!
Apr 2017 • Couples
Having seen the shop reviewing on Trip Advisor we paid a visit just ahead of the Easter break when the shop was filled with unique Easter chocolate ideas so we did all our Easter egg shopping here! Well worth a visit

Chocolate heaven
Dec 2016 • Solo
Wonderful chocolates, and gifts. You won't come out empty handed, if its not chocolate then it will be a soft toy, mug or other gift. There is a problem with a steep step but they do have a ramp available, not suitable for a buggy, so much stuff at children's eye level
