Every chocolate is a taste sensation. My good lady also enjoyed her gift.

The recipients were delighted with the chocolates and said they were the best they had ever tasted.

August 30, 2023 | Sonia Millar

I have to say that these chocolates were a delightful surprise, never having previously tried Friars chocolates. These are top-drawer chocolates, absolutely delicious and there is such an exciting and interesting range of flavours. When they describe something as (for example)Irish cream flavour, that particular chocolate will definitely have an identifiable taste of Baileys( other Irish creams are available!). With such a deliciously creamy and unfailingly moreish selection of flavours, I will most definitely be ordering my chocolate fix from Friars in future. Highly recommended!!

I bought a large of box of chocolates from Friars at Christmas, and they were so good that I have recently bought another box for my wife's birthday. The variety and taste of the chocolates are superb, and I would fully recommend them.

Excellent delivery service and superb chocolates!

March 22, 2023 | Helen Lewis

I bought these for my husband and cannot recommend them enough, they are definitely worth the money! Beautifully packaged and firstly, a real treat for the eyes when you remove the lid as each one is beautifully decorated, you’re spoilt for choice with the selection of flavours and the quality of the chocolate is second to none! Friars will now always without doubt, be my go to place for chocolate in the future.

March 18, 2023 | Gina Purdy


These chocolates were sent as a gift to a different part of the country so I did not see them. However, I know they were delivered promptly. in good condition and were described as "fabulous" so I think that would definitely be a 5 star rating. I would use the company again.

Excellent product., however, there were severe problems with delivery. In spite of completing the box for delivery information three times!!! the product was delivered to the payees address. This is quite a common fault with some websites, but should be addressed. I will wait until the new year to forward on to its final destination (which is only a few miles from Keswick!).

December 31, 2022 | John Cass

A great success. The family loved them. And the delivery was spot on. Thanks.

December 28, 2022 | SUSAN ANDREWS DODWELL

I was looking for a special box of chocolates and didn't want to buy from the usual big brands that to me all taste the same and have been cheapened and mass produced over the years, which are also a waste of money in my opinion. So I searched the internet and found FRIARS. A long standing family firm based in the Lake District. I purchased their Signature Box. Although Royal Mail were on strike, I still received them in quick time.
The chocolates are clearly hand made and may I add put a well known French chocolate company to shame, as I bought a box from them last Xmas paying over £68 for them and was extremely disappointed.
The different flavours were delicious and I loved the cranberry one best! I would highly recommend if you are a chocolate lover and want true quality. Well done FRIARS I will be purchasing my chocolate from you now on.

December 23, 2022 | Yvonne Strachan

Excellent service from Friars. They responded to queries quickly and ensured the chocolates arrived on time as they were a gift. Really cannot fault the exceptional service.

I bought it for my boss and I was so disappointed. As well as the fact that it was overpriced, the chocolates were not sealed, you take the top cover off and traa, everything is there (exposed to air!) I wonder if my boss ate them or maybe they were stale, she put them in the bin. I guess I’ll never know!

Love! These Chocolates always buy for special occasions , well made delicious chocolates, and very friendly staff to speak to over phone if need be.

These are quite exceptionally good chocolates.
We have tried quite a few ‘upscale’ chocolate brands, and I would definitely rate these as amongst the best, if not *the* best.

I bought my wife a box for her return from hospital after a hip replacement operation - she said it almost made the stay in hospital worthwhile!

October 22, 2022 | Harvey Rutt

Wonderful quality and fantastic sleection. Will definitely be a regular purchase.

Wonderful selection of the most gorgeous chocolates, that make a great present. My latest order arrived absolutely on time, recipient delighted ( she’s received them from me previously)
and soon I’ll have to get more for my brother’s birthday!! He too has had Friars chocolates from me on many occasions! Then maybe I can replenish my personal stock- why change a wonderful habit!!!

These were bought for a friend's birthday. When buying chocolates as a gift I will choose Friars as they are the "Rolls Royce" option and are always appreciated highly!

I have already submitted a review but since you are so interested in my thoughts, I repeat: The chocolates themselves would have scored higher however I paid extra for a next day delivery but they didn't arrive until the day after that.

August 19, 2021 | R W Gardiner

I regret to say that I did not have an opportunity to sample any of the contents of the Signature Chocolate Box I purchased recently, so am unable to comment from first hand experience, but I understand that it was very well received. I will certainly be purchasing more for suitable occasions, and might even be allowed by one of the the recipients to sample something from the contents next time.

August 7, 2021 | William Bateman

The chocolates were delicious every flavour was beautiful a real treat.I will definitely order them again.

I was originally going to buy a large box of chocolates for my wife's birthday from Hotel Chocolate, from whom I order regularly. Unfortunately, due to the effects of the coronavirus, they were unable to deliver before her birthday. I found your company whilst searching online for an alternative chocolatier. Impressed by your history and your pricing (not cheap), I placed an order for your Signature Chocolates - 48.
The attached photograph speaks for itself......This is what my wife was confronted with when she opened the box. Her obvious dismay and disappointment was only exceeded by my embarrassment. The box is far too flimsy and the way it was packaged for delivery totally inadequate. As for the chocolates, they were not a patch on the quality of Hotel Chocolate.
I have given one star because I was unable to send the review with 'no stars'.
Needless to say, I will not be buying anything else from your company or recommending that anybody else does.

June 24, 2020 | Douglas Parsons

I cannot do this at present as they are a birthday gift for someone who has a birthday on July 7th. When I have feed back from them I shall let you know!.
However I can say that they arrived safely and that your ordering online system was easy to engage in which is more than some of the experiences I have had!. sincerely Yolanda

June 15, 2020 | Angela Basit

When goods arrived the packaging was so bad that although the box was still intact the chocolates were out of the tray and completely mixed up. I reported this to Friars and they were most apologetic and refunded my money.
The actual chocolates, although damaged, were very nice.

I bought these chocolates for an NHS worker so did not consume them myself. I can however pass along her comments that they were decadent, luxurious and scrumptious and she shared them with her Mum and Daughter under duress! I look forward to my own box in the fullness of time, definitely at Christmas at the latest.

I wrote a review telling you that I purchased the chocolates as a present for Joan, who lives in Alton. I am Linda Davis, this is my email address and I used my debit card to pay. I included a gift card to Joan. The chocolates were duly delivered to me and I had to pay to post them on to Joan. Tell e what I did wrong.

May 12, 2020 | Joan Bennett

Really lovely chocolates. The box was heavy and the chocolates are huge! They were very rich and yummy which meant you could only have 1 or 2 of them a day, which saves you from quickly scoffing the lot. There was good variety and some interesting flavours.

My only critique would be to remove the coffee chocs because no-one likes them and you could have 2 other lovely chocs instead!
