Joined a small queue to purchase the offering of the day: a chocolate and ginger iced shake...it was delicious. Once inside there was a dazzling but bewildering array of different chocolate offerings. An explanatory leaflet, or similar, would have helped to understand all the options...and may have encouraged us to purchase some products to take home.More

Thanks so much - delighted you enjoyed it. There are now three London locations: Chelsea, Kensington and Clapham Junction, and Richmond opens in September 2021.

Possibly the best chocolate milkshake I have ever had! The service was friendly and quick. There is often a queue outside Knoops but it is definitely worth the wait. I need to visit in the colder months so I can try a hot chocolate as...well.More

The lady who served us was very friendly. She asked some questions about preferences, allergies and managed to create a drink of the dream for all of us. All 3 drinks were absolutely different but special for each of us. Love it! Worth to traveling...from London to Rye again!More

Had a delicious dark hot chocolate and milkshake during the summer. Both delicious, dark and sweet! I could have kept drinking more and more. I have subsequently bought a Knoopifier and the chocolate buttons and now have one daily at home.

Best hot chocolate, lots of choice available! Very premium product. Friendly, young staff who managed the covid measures (two in shop only) well. Definitely worth a visit when in Rye.

Ah the delicious hot chocolate in so many variations! If the service matched the product it would be five stars and rated delightful. But each visit is met by a scowl; perhaps a smile isn't the done thing for this brand. This visit was particularly...grim as our order was messed up. On the rainiest day in November, cold milkshakes were served instead of the hot milk chocolate requested. Despite our polite attempts to point out the lady's error, there was no apology, refund or offer to change. And so, a £20 bill later, you may have witnessed four people sadly sipping freezing milkshakes on a cold, wet day on a bench in the High Street Not nice memories. Inside is stark, white and desperately needs warmth in both decor and attitude. But the drinks are nice.More

OK. The sun is dipping or dipped and in the UK, yes even the East Sussex coast gets a wee bit nippy. The best, and I mean the BEST hot chocolate you can have is here. First thing. A great choice. Next no bad choices....Great little place. Left with arms full of ' take home flakes and yummy full of yummy hot choccyMore

We were in Rye for a staycation and a colleague had recommende Knoops to us so we wanted to give it a try. Firstly it is located in such a beautiful part of Rye, secondly it is a lovely looking quaint little shop and thirdly...the young man who served us was polite, patient (whilst we made our minds up!) and very knowledgeable about the drinks that were being served. We ordered 3 hot chocolates, all of varying percentages of cocoa and I can happily say all three were delicious! As were the homemade marshmallows! If you find yourself in Rye, or even passing through, be sure to give this place a visit!More
