Discover luxurious chocolates, gifts & treats online & in store. Friars was established in 1927 as a family business and remains in the same family to this day. We have high street stores located in Keswick and Ambleside and an e-commerce website specialising in fulfilling corporate orders for businesses ranging from small hotels through to multinational corporations. We are one of the largest independent retailers in the UK and can source most types of confectionery produced in the UK and Europe at highly competitive prices. If it isn’t listed on our website and is in production we can usually get it.
