We attended the chocolate making workshop, which we received as a gift. The staff who welcomed us were very friendly, and we had good tea and coffee while waiting for the workshop to start. The workshop itself began with an informative presentation on the origin of chocolate and the process of making it.

We were given a variety of chocolate from different parts of the world to taste, before we made a bar of chocolate each and then some cocoa dusted truffles. While waiting for the chocolates to set, we went downstairs to enjoy a chocolate gelato in the café.

All in all, it was a really enjoyable activity, and very good value for money. The hosts were so knowledgeable and approachable, and they made the workshop such a great experience - thank you so much!

We went for the workshop & thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We come away from the experience feeling more knowledgeable about the history of chocolate, but also educated on quality & taste. We have all had our heads turned to buy products away from the supermarket. The team were all super friendly & helpful.

Went here to do a chocolate workshop. It was fab! There was a really interesting presentation about the history of chocolate, followed by a chocolate tasting and then we got to make our own chocolate bar and truffles. The shop itself has loads of interesting and unique products. The staff were super friendly and really knowledgeable too.

Completed the chocolate workshop at 15:30 in Saturday 5th march. The lady presenting it was amazing, really knew her stuff, was funny and informative. We made a slab of chocolate and some truffles which taste amazing. We had a hot chocolate in the cafe bit during the break (whilst the chocolate set) - words can not describe how good it was.
The shop is very reasonably priced for the quality of chocolate you get. Really fun experience for the whole family.
Worksop groups are a really good size, so it's not intimidating and you can ask as many questions as you like.

We did the chocolate workshop, it was a lot of fun, very informative and we also made a chocolate bar and some truffles. Great selection of toppings to put in the bar, and the hot chocolate given while the bars are setting is one of the best I have ever had.
My only niggle is that the chocolate used for the tasting is all dark chocolate, which I understand the need for, because you are meant to be tasting the difference between the chocolate according to where the cocoa is grown. However the chocolate used for the bar and the truffles is dark too. So even though we had a fab time and it was good fun making them, neither me or my partner are fans of dark chocolate, so we didn't particularly enjoy eating them, which is the only reason I have knocked a star off. I just think, maybe an alternative to dark chocolate would be great. Or add a disclaimer to the description on the website that you must be a fan of dark chocolate. In hindsight, even though it was great value for money, and we had a good time, it is still quite a pricey activity and I perhaps wouldn't have booked it if I had known it is mostly dark chocolate.
I will however be visiting the shop more often, there was a great selection of truffles and chocolate, and we bought some of the hot chocolate buttons, which are delicious!

Absolutely fantastic workshop with knowledgeable staff and a really friendly welcome. We came as a 3-generation group and I was a little worried it wouldn’t be accessible and engaging for my 9 year old. I didn’t need to worry - he loved it. I was amazed at the choice of toppings for our bars and he really loved the chocolate tasting too.

Booked this with my partner as a present. The chocolate history and tasting was so interesting, the woman presenting was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. We then proceeded to make a chocolate bar with special additions and chocolate truffles. The whole experience was perfect, very VERY good value for money. The shop owner was very welcoming and good fun too. We can’t wait to book on again!

Really enjoyed the workshop- divine chocolate, knowledgeable staff and great value for money when you consider all the chocolate you get to make and take home (and eat on site 😀), tutoring and drinks you get during the break. Just make sure that if you go after lunch you have a light lunch only!
