Vegan Chocolate Christmas Gift Guide 2020

At Friars, we don’t take Vegan food lightly.

The happiness and love experienced when giving or receiving a chocolate box  never seems to fade. Easter as always was full of colour and vibrancy. Our new additions to last years offerings, the gin and baileys Easter eggs, went down extremely well and so this year... Read More
