  • Fantastic little sweet shop, takes me back to my younger year's with so much to choose from, the old till and scale's and even an old sweet maker. The tiny little village street is very charming.

  • The owner of this shop is the most rude individual I have ever come across. Unbelievable comments said to my wife and kids while visiting. I would advise anyone to stay clear of this disgraceful retailer
  • So many sweets! And good service to boot. Highly recommended.
  • The kids spent all their weekly pocket money in there. A step back into time.
