“One of THE best place to go in Chester, superb prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

Okay, I know Chester has lots of sweet shops dotted around the place, Ye Olde Sweet Shope, Sweets of Heaven, Candyland and Thorntons etc, but Mr Simms (It's got a new name now) has excelled itself.

When you enter the shop, you are instantly hit with an array of wierd, wonderful and wacky sweets, (including the ORIGINAL milk bottles with the cornflour). They also do a small range of American branded sweets, which are reasonably cheaper than Sweets of Heaven in the Grosvenor Precinct.

The service there is exceptional, and being a student I always get a warm friendly welcome and maybe the odd sample to try, which is wonderful. A must visit shop for anybody visiting Chester

“good taste”

we went in to explore one saturday afternoon, and decided to have a pick and mix. Being the indecisive person i am i could choose what to have, lucky the young welsh girl that served us was very knowledgable and advised us very well on our sweet choice..thank you.

“Best ever shop: Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

I went in with my dad and found it amazing. We left and went to pick my mum up from the station. After picking her up we drove back to town and ended up going back, showing my mum the shop and we bought some great sweets for Halloween.I only bought a couple of sweets so definitely going back before Halloween. Great range of sweets!! :D :) :P

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

I went to this shop the other day with my son and daughter, it seemed lovely at first until when i asked for help picking an item the lady who later told me she was the owner was very very rude and really quite aggressive. I will not be going into that shop ever again! My children left very upset and I too am very upset I even went in there.
