Called in for a quick coffee and slice of carrot cake, not actually realising this isn't part of John Lewis but is a separate concession. The coffees and cake were good and the service was ok as well but the place needs a good tidy up. There was a lot of clutter on the shelving at the back of the... More

Not just a drink it's a drink and desert all... More

I called in on Sunday for a nice drink whilst shopping with my girlfriend. The place was relatively busy, but plenty of room, we ordered our drinks, and as soon as we received our receipt, we were told that the place closed in 20 min, no prior warning to this.so that was quite irritating. We sat down to a dirty... More

Visited on a very busy Sunday morning. Fast efficient service. Chose the 100% hot chocolate which tasted excellent but was £3.50 for the regular, which was really quiet small. Would visit for a treat.

If you want a treat in the middle of shopping then this is the place! Not great for the diet but the hot salted caramel chocolate is beyond amazing ☕️

small and compact, nice coffee, lovely hot chocolate...... but don't sit under the air conditioning - good for the chocolate but a bit chilly for me - worth a visit - a little chocolate haven

First visit to Hotel Chocolat cafe. It is self service but once we had collected our drinks there was no table to sit at which hadn't been cleared or cleaned. There weren't many customers in so there were plenty of seats. We sat outside , the drinks were ok but felt disappointed and wished we had gone to the John... More
