We were given a small free sample, and bought a couple of little chocs, but most of it was very overpriced. Have been to Cadburys in Birmingham and this doesn't come close! The restaurant redeemed the situation somewhat. Some imaginative and healthy* options on offer....More

It is a shame you did not enjoy your time with us, the museum is really worth visiting, covering 3,000 years of chocolate history. If you didn't get to try the café, I assume it was because your group visited us on New Years Day....More

The chocolate here is beautiful. The name Silky oak is perfect for this silky chocolate that just melts in your mouth. If you love fine chocolate this place is worth a visit.
