  • 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!

  • 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.
  • So many sweets! And good service to boot. Highly recommended.
