“Great fun, especially for children.”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

We loved watching how the rock is made and getting the chance to make our own. The children loved making chocolate lollies.

“kids loved it”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

The kids really enjoyed rolling their own rock - however this was an additional charge to the admission fee, but only a pound extra. Please don't expect to be staying there for half a day, because in 1 hour you've seen and done it all. Overall the children enjoyed the experience.

“disappointment”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

I visited the factory 8/6/2012 with my family. If was very very busy, on entering the rock room there was a massive queue of people and we were ushered to the next room by a member of staff. We visited the rock factory and never saw a bit of rock until we got to the shop. we did manage to see our daughter make a chocolate lolly, but this was very disorganized. Very poor signage as to what the protocol was. I recommend that if you intend to visit then do it during term times. at least then you may be able to see the hand written a4 paper stuck to the window. Didnt see any manufacturing at all, only packing and oh yes some chocolate eyes being piped onto some chocolate fish. would question hygiene in the place as no one wore gloves, hands were wiped on aprons, staff went to the toilet in the same aprons and returned to start whiping and touching, yuk. Also if any of the John Bull management read this, It does nothing for your reputation with at least 12 illegal copies of copyrighted albums, clearly on display in the chocolate room. Ashamed to say we are not tourists, but live within 8 miles.
