Lovely little shop with all the old sweeties right down to liquorice pipes. I couldn't believe the amount of sweetie. My kids were so happy and the lady who served us was really nice and helpful

Having had a great week away. The kids wanted a sweet stop for the journey home...... This shop is an aladdin's cave of tastes with so many sweets to choose from and enjoy. We went mad and must have come away with enough for weeks!!!...More
