Thank you for your review. I think you are being very restrained in holding off eating the chocolates, I am sure they will be enjoyed once you are home. We look forward to you visiting us again

Met friends for lunch at the cafe on a rainy HB day. Great food selection, friendly staff and warm and inviting. Clearly we were not the only ones as the place was packed.

Lamb burger was huge and delicious. There is no way to attack it without a knife and fork. Service was gracious! Highly recommend silky oak chocolates!

If you are a chocoholic then this place is the place to visit. There are so many different types of chocolate to buy. There is a fantastic museum about the history of chocolate. Also there is the store and gift shop.

Always nice to stop here before Easter and purchase some very good marshmallow chocolate eggs. Oh so good. Plenty of other individual chocolate to entice the taste buds as well

Thank you, did you know that we make the marshmallow as a log inside a Christmas Cracker for Christmas? At times through Winter we make marshmallow fish as well. Have a great Easter

Hello, Thank you for your enquiry. Silky Oak has a bus stop right outside our gate, but I do not think the Filter Room is on a bus route. If you prefer not to take part in one of the cruise ship tours (which are excellent) I... More
