I spent a couple of hours working at Doo Wop and it has a very pleasant atmosphere, with soul and blues music in the background. I got to taste some of their new wine, wonderfully rich and sweet, and pairs up with chocolate perfectly. Highly recommend going there!
Loved the chocolates- I would definitely say the taste matches the amazing look of the chocolates
I loved my bread making class with Philip, very friendly and informative. He answered all of my questions and helped me every step of the way...made three breads with great success!
Just done the beginner’s bread course with Philip.......fantastic fun, lovely people running the course, baked 2 loaves to take home (and a roulade as an extra!). Amazing value (great idea to give someone as a present).The coffee is delicious too! Recommend.
