Having visited Cadbury World in Birmingham a few times I can actually say this was soooooo much better!!!! The tour guide, Matthew was friendly and at times funny and when one on the interactive pictures in the story didn't work he adlibbed very well and so the story was able to continue. The way you are able to taste for... More

Really disappointed as I had high expectations for this cafe. Ordered the caramel cake & orange/dark hot chocolate. The cake had far too much sickly buttercream in it and far too little caramel. Just a trickle of it on the side and if it wasn't for the rolo, I'm not sure I would have known. The hot chocolate was a... More

Fabulous choice of beers- some bottles very expensive though- up to £20 per bottle, we settled for Chech. beer and Cherry beer, it was lovely and fruity and the barman tells you the price before he pours it--£3.25 for a small glass! although this bar is very small it does have upstairs. Well worth a visit if you are into... More

We wanted to taste the chocolate at the famous York Chocolate Story and we weren't entirely disappointed. We had 6 types of chocolate and they were all delicious. Also, the customer service was really good, very friendly and helpful staff. The only issue we had was with the quality of the coffee, the espresso was definitely not an espresso, more... More

Although I didn't sit in the café, I did choose some chocolates from the shop whilst waiting to go on the Chocolate Tour. The place was clean and tidy and had lots of different chocolates of all different flavours and varieties. If I had more time, I would sit in and have a hot chocolate. The chocolate was gorgeous, I... More

We have enjoyed a brilliant chocolate fondue some years ago in Barcelona and we looking forward to a similar experience. Unfortunately it was aimed at a different market. The Spanish version featured lots of chunks of various fruit to dunk into liquid chocolate. The York experience was no more than a couple of small strawberries - the rest of the... More
