Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, if would like a guaranteed table, but you can walk-in the same day and we may have a table for you. If you only wish to visit the Chocolate Shop or Exhibition it is not necessary to book.
www.HighlandChocolatier.com/Menu
Yes, children are most welcome! Parents are responsible for supervising their children at all times. Please let us know if you need a highchair, or are bringing a pram and you must include these as 1 person in your booking to allow social distancing to be maintained. We do not have a "children's menu" however, there is a 10% discount on children's hot chocolates.
Signage and procedures for social distancing, a new reservation system and additional hygiene measures are in place for a wonderful, safe and enjoyable visit. Face coverings are required inside when not eating or drinking. You may bring your own headphones and personal device for the audio guided Chocolate Tastings or use ours which are sanitized after each use.
Private car parking at rear with 2 wheelchair-friendly spaces. The private car park cannot accommodate caravans and buses, but they are welcome to park on the main road in front of the shop.
There is easy wheelchair access from the car park into the building. A disabled toilet is located in the Chocolate Lounge on the same level as the car park. To reach the Chocolate and Gift Shops internally, there are 3 small steps for which a stair lift is provided and staff are trained to operate it. Ramps allow external access to the shops if a stair lift is not convenient. We would like to make your visit welcoming and stress-free, so please reach out and let us know what you need.
Tables may be cancelled by 10am on day of arrival using the link in your confirmation email, via the Table Agent website, or phone us on 01887 840775. If you have pre-booked a Chocolate Tasting, it is only refundable if cancelled more than 24 hours before the reservation time.
Arrivals more than 10 minutes late will be considered cancelled although we will try to offer an alternative if available. Please call us as soon as possible.
That means there are no available tables or Chocolate Tastings, but you may still visit the Chocolate Shop and Exhibition.
Your table may be limited to a specific number of chairs. You can always call us on 01887 840775, and we will try our best.
Certified Assistance dogs are permitted inside the Chocolate Lounge and Shop - staff will need to see a branded harness or other identification.

This is a lovely little coffee shop and I enjoy visiting, the staff are faultless and always friendly and helpful. Cakes, scones and a croissant are the only food on offer and while delicious very limited in scope. If you have children there are no healthy options. A simple soup and salad option would not take much to prepare and serve. I understand this is not how the owners want to market the place but feel they are missing a trick. I will be back when out for a coffee so it wont deter me but would be disappointed if I was a tourist.

Had lovely coffees and scones on Monday on a day out. Initially seated at a table which was very cold due to doors having to be open for COVID-19 ventilation but no problem moving to a lovely window table which was very cosy! Will see definitely be back!

Excellent activity- particularly for a rainy day. First part was very informative & interesting to see the workshop and the artefacts within the museum part. Tasting was great - surprise element of flavours was fantastic and the headsets worked really well too. The staff were 10/10 - at the entrance, in the coffee shop and in the shop too (particularly helpful & friendly). Seems like a great team. We stayed for a slice of cake & a brownie the size of my face! Have already recommended to others travelling to the area!

Due to covid we had our hot chocolate and cake out side undercover. I had book an outside table and on the day it was pouring with rain staff did offer us an inside table if we wished to swap which We did not. But it was very nice to be offered this option on the day. Experience was very good and we really enjoyed our hot chocolates which were excellent .
