Stopped in whilst visiting the area. Nice to see it whilst in action, easy to get lost watching the melted chocolate stirring. The staff were friendly and polite. Enjoyed the hot chocolate and thought the chocolate stirrer was a cool creation.

This place is brilliant, did birthday pizza making with prosecco with my sisters. The hosts made us feel so welcome, even though we turned up at the end of the day😜
