We won us our first national award in 2006 for the Innovation of the Year when we introduced a shopping element to the pub, so we knew we were on the right track from the start.
Our 2011 refurbishment meant our former shop space had to make way for the new state-of-the-art kitchen.

Our Little ‘Chocolate’ Shop now takes pride of place in the main drinkers bar. Stocking a vast selection of handmade chocolates, bars and chocolate gifts all made here on the premises by Ashley.

As well as our fully stacked shelves we can also supply meat, fish, vegetables, cheese and many other items from our daily deliveries from local suppliers. Most items can be sourced for the next day. Our every popular homemade Ice Cream can be taken away too…. Picking from our extensive list of classical, weird and wonderful flavours! Freshly made bread from our kitchen can be ordered up to 9am for same day collection, or give us a call the day before if that’s easier. We can also supply a whole range of specially designed hampers for Christmas or Birthday gifts with a difference.
Ashley produces all of our chocolates in his Chocolate room in the main kitchen, winning the Taste Award in 2016 for his Gin infused Selection! Take home some the award winning chocolates all lovingly packaged or even a couple of his chocolate bars -maybe not an easy task with the vast amount of flavours to choose from. Our ‘Chocolate Plaques’ are going down a storm, personalised to any occasion or one with a witty slogan to make your friends chuckle.
So, next time you’re in, why not visit our small but perfectly formed shop and take a few treats home with you?
What could be better than a bespoke sculpture hand-crafted as the centrepiece of your special celebration? Well, how about a bespoke sculpture made of chocolate? Ashley is something of a master craftsman when it comes to creating stunning artworks, models and displays made entirely from fine Belgian chocolate. – have you seen some of his Chocolate antics on Channel 4’s ‘Extreme Chocolate Makers’ or Channel 5’s ‘Wonderful World of Chocolate’….?? 

Ashley can also do any chocolate commissions for you, just ask… no idea is ever too strange or anything ever too big or small (did you see his nearly life size Elvis !!?).

Check out the Events page for Chocolate classes in the kitchen or one of Ashley Chocolate Demonstrations in the Pub, which ever one you visit it will be a feast for the eyes…and belly! Each year he painstakingly pieces together individual elements, spending many hours on each private or corporate commission, to produce unique works of culinary art that are both tasteful and incredibly tasty. Recently doing commissioned works for Legal & General, Ladbrookes as well as Wedding favours and special gifts.
