The best place to visit to bring back childhood memories or start some new ones for the kids or grandchildren. Situated near the high street but a little off the beaten track. Visit and get help from the ever helpful staff.

Loved this sweet shop. Sweets in jars are so appealing. This shop is smart and well organised, the staff are really helpful and friendly. We spent quite a while looking at everything on display. We came away with a few of our favourites.
