Summer Opening Hours: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 9.30 am - 3pm

From 19th July... not a lot will change for us just yet! We are happy to see the world opening up again but for the safety of our staff and customers we will be taking a steady approach moving forward - we would appreciate if customers still wear masks when visiting us, and our staff will do the same. Our indoor cafe seating won't be open yet, this is to allow more space in our chocolate shop for the comfort of our customers. Chocolate making courses and parties are still on hold too, but we will monitor the situation carefully going forward and make changes as soon as we can. 

Our shop as always has a  range of handmade chocolates, brownies, bakes and gifts plus take away hot drinks and celebration cakes (you can now order your celebration cakes online to collect from store) and we can't wait to see you!

You can of course still order our range of handmade chocolates, truffles, treats and our brownies for delivery by post or to collect from our shop in Retford. 

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us through all the Covid madness - we really appreciate it!

Take care and see you soon x
