We are a small factory hand making delicious chocolates, figures and bars in our purpose built facility. Watch our chocolatiers at work as you walk around with informative notice boards covering everything from the history of chocolate, to where it is grown and how it is made. You can also watch our film showing the bean to bar process. On site cafe serving premium coffee, homemade cakes and savoury light bites (such as panini's etc). The cafe also has free WiFi for your convenience. Try your hand at making a chocolate pizza, lollies or other seasonal chocolate in our workshops suitable for ages 2 - 102! Why not try our on-site quiz too. Our factory shop is crammed with our chocolate creations for you to browse or indulge. Together with a loose chocolate counter and a selection of giftware and hampers you are sure to find a lovely gift - so long as you have the will power not to eat it yourself! We have on site free car parking and toilet facilities including baby change and wheelchair access. Cadbury's World we are not, but hope you will find it is a nice way to fill 30 minutes, or more if you indulge in the cafe or workshops.

Had hoped to see the chocolate making process and take a tour but it was more geared up for children to make choc pops or chocolate pizzas. Chocolate was average in taste but expensive to buy.More

Please let me respond as follows. 1. Chocolate couverture manufacture is (on any kind of scale) an industrial process involving large roasting and grinding machines. In such processes, while very complex and requiring incredible expertise (and heritage in our view) other than big machinery and...More

I'm sorry to say but we were a little disappointed with here. A very poor selection of truly dark chocolate. All we could find was 55%. The rest was the fairly standard milk & white chocolate selections found in many different places.
