Lamb burger was huge and delicious. There is no way to attack it without a knife and fork. Service was gracious! Highly recommend silky oak chocolates!

If you are a chocoholic then this place is the place to visit. There are so many different types of chocolate to buy. There is a fantastic museum about the history of chocolate. Also there is the store and gift shop.

Always nice to stop here before Easter and purchase some very good marshmallow chocolate eggs. Oh so good. Plenty of other individual chocolate to entice the taste buds as well
