Myself and my son who is 8 years old went here last saturday. I didnt know what to expect but i need not have worried, it was great, firstly when you enter the cafe the delicious smell of chocolate and coffee hits you along with the warmth of the room, the staff are very pleasant and efficient. We took part in the workshop and got to make a little chocolate bear and take it home :) the workshop was very good, it consisted of a short video explaining how chocolate is made etc and then Louise showed us the various types of chocolates and eggs they make and we got to sample a few chocolates too. it was a great day, well worth it and my son really enjoyed it too.

We went for a chocolate workshop with the children over Easter. This was very good value for money and the children even learnt a bit about how chocolate is made. I have recommended this to friends and we will be going back again. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. A lovely way to spend an afternoon with the family.

Hi MelissaDonohoe, thank you for your great review. We appreciate that you took the time to complete a review and we are delighted that you enjoyed visiting us. We have recently installed a play tower so the children can have even more fun when they visit. Best wishes

If you are considering to visit this attraction, believe me spend your time and money elsewhere. Its nothing more that a regular coffee shop. No attractions, no gardens. All there is is a shop selling chocolates, hot chocolates and some cakes. Very small too. The "garden" consists of a car park and a green lawn with a couple of chef decorated boards to take pictures with. No more no less. It took us hours of driving to get there from where we stayed and we only spent 2 minutes there! Deceitful marketing by using brochures attracts tourists, like us. Not worth the trouble.
