  • Awesome selection...their fudge is to die for, nothing like it anywhere!!! We don't see shops that sells candies by weight in the Philippines and this was quite a novelty for me. I wish I had more spa...  more »
  • Beautiful shop, a living piece of history! And their sweets are top quality, absolutely delicious. My favourites are the fudges (in plural as they have a great variety) If I was less careful I would come out from this shop rolling on my tummy! I would give 10 stars if it was possible, 5 stars is not enough!
  • I don't think there are any traditional sweets you couldn't find in this shop! Never seen so many glass jars. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Trading since the early 19th century in a building that had stood here since before the great plague and the fire of London .. only place i know you can buy sweetened salt liquorice .. love it!
  • Heard so much about this place, and watched the entertaining videos on YouTube. Very friendly owners with great product knowledge and a huge range of childhood favourites to choose from. My wife and I had a great experience and would recommend anyone to include this shop on their day out to Pateley Bridge. Keep up the great work!
  • Old style sweet shop. Top selection.
