Called in yesterday for lunch with a friend. Sandwiches were lovely and the lemon meringue was delicious. Staff were very friendly and the service was fab. Will definitely be back soon, thank you!

I tried their quiche and dear god, haven't tried anything like it. All the ingredients were fused together and it was the best thing I've had. Service was good and food was served in good time:) only thing I'd say is, you could make your scones not so hard and a little fluffier, that's all!

Called in here for lunch with my son. He is a chef and he was so impressed. Staff are very polite and quick. I could not have a cake as I am diabetic. I mentioned this and the lady went right back to the chef who came out to speak to us. Going back on Saturday with my husband for... More

We visited The Chocolate Box on Friday, 24 February 2017 having visited it a number of times previously. It was a special occasion our 44th Wedding Anniversary, and when we arrived, having booked a table earlier, we found that a beautiful flower arrangement (with an attached balloon) had been placed on our table - a lovely thought. We were impressed... More

I visited this place with my sister for some quality time together when we arrived it was quite busy however they were quick to accommodate and the food arrived promptly. I opted for soup and rarebit due to the fact I love the rarebit and found out the soup is all homemade. The young girls serving could not have been... More

We were looking for a nice place to go for brunch, reading the reviews it looked like a good place to try. Unfortunatly the breakfast menu is quite plain and uninspiring with not much to choose from. The quiche was lovely but the serving staff where pretty terrible, as they all stood together in one corner and chatted while we... More

Service good, cakes and sandwiches were ok but nothing special. No choices on type of tea and the teapot for 2 was filled to the top and therefore very heavy to lift! Not sure we'll bother going back
