Lovely traditional sweet shop, selling all you could want. Lady behind the counter is a bit sour though, perhaps she just doesn’t like kids.

Tiny little old style shop full of all the sweets from yesteryear. We managed to purchase some sugar free licorice and toffees. Worth popping in to bring you back to your youth.

Lots of choice. Friendly staff. Good value. Watch out for the super-sours though - not for the faint-hearted!

We visited recently while on holiday in the area with our children. The shop is very small but charming. Prices were reasonable and We enjoyed the sweets very much!

Lovely traditional sweet shop with over 200 different sweets to choose from, they also cater for special dietary requirements with a great selection for diabetics. Which is useful, as I probably will be diabetic after working my way through their entire range. Very friendly owners,...More

After reading the reviews I was expecting a traditional sweet shop, instead it was a small shop with no character and a couple of plastic pots of overpriced sweets. Unfortunately I'm spoilt as I live in the Lake District so ive visited lots of traditional...More
