I visited this place with my sister for some quality time together when we arrived it was quite busy however they were quick to accommodate and the food arrived promptly. I opted for soup and rarebit due to the fact I love the rarebit and found out the soup is all homemade. The young girls serving could not have been... More

We were looking for a nice place to go for brunch, reading the reviews it looked like a good place to try. Unfortunatly the breakfast menu is quite plain and uninspiring with not much to choose from. The quiche was lovely but the serving staff where pretty terrible, as they all stood together in one corner and chatted while we... More

Service good, cakes and sandwiches were ok but nothing special. No choices on type of tea and the teapot for 2 was filled to the top and therefore very heavy to lift! Not sure we'll bother going back

Lunch time Sat may not be their best time given location. Smart if slightly chintzy decor. Atmosphere quiet and a little lonely. Our cakes (brownie and lemon cake) pretty dry - kids more than 15min to finish which is almost unheard of. School kid servers. Prices ok though. As is wifi.

We were lucky enough to be given a voucher for Christmas and so decided to have lunch here today. Now I'm kicking myself that I've never been before and wasted so much time! To start with, the 2 ladies at the Chocolate Box are so very welcoming and friendly and are clearly passionate about the food they offer - everything... More

My partner arranged me a surprise birthday breakfast and picked the Chocolate box after reading the impressive reviews. It was my sixtieth birthday and she asked if balloons and banners and Champagne could be arranged. On arrival and first impressions I was very impressed. The décor and cleanliness of the café was excellent. We were then shown to a fully... More

It was my first visit, but my wife and daughter have visited many times before. I can recommend the full English breakfast. My daughter had her usual afternoon tea. Excellent quality, value for money and wonderful service from Mo and Emma. We are certain to recommend The Chocolate Box to all our friends and relatives. I would certainly recommend this... More

We popped in for a late lunch yesterday, and had a lovely time. We arrived mid-afternoon so it wasn't busy, but it was inviting and the chef and waitress were lovely. We had rarebit and warm scone with damson jam. I'd definitely visit again.

Wow! We popped into the chocolate box for a late lunch and all remarked that it was the best lunch we had had in a long time! The owners go out of their way to be welcoming and helpful and the food was truly delicious- especially the rarebit. We will definitely be coming again, despite the fact that we live... More
