Friars is a family business specialising in luxury chocolate and unique gifts. Since 1927 the business has evolved from a gift shop/cafe to a specialist chocolate and gift store.

Our online business was launched in 2010 and more recently we have opened a second ‘Ye Olde Friars’ high street store in Ambleside to support our flagship store in Keswick.

Our gifts are designed in house so you will not find them anywhere else. We want to make it easy for you to be original, so you can give gifts that taste and look amazing and will be remembered.

We love new products (perhaps because we get bored easily!), so every Valentines, Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas we launch a new range. It certainly keeps us entertained and hopefully our customers interested.

Quick delivery and lovely quality products.

I looked at various wine sites to find what seems to me the obvious choice for a gift of dark chocolates and drink: red wine. Friars had it, shipped it and made the recipient happy. What more can a "thank you" gift giver want?

My father loves marzipan and dark chocolate so the marzipan chocolates were the ideal present for Father's Day. He said they were delicious and really enjoyed them.

Exc delivery service and packaging.
Shame I couldn't have 6 of one colour to achieve the outcome I would have liked.
Tasting to be done at a 3 year old party.

Parcel arrived promptly and well packaged.
I would have given a 5 rating but the company does not offer gift wrapping or even a gift bag. As my order was a gift I had to get it delivered to me and then arrange another delivery to the person the gift was for. Very annoying.
However, the chocolates were very lovely!

Nice hamper. An ideal present with the beers and glass. The snacks unfortunately weren't as described when I placed the order as one was missing. The website description and picture have since changed so I presume they ran out of the original snacks.

I ordered the chocolate game console and Iphone for my son's birthday, unfortunately it was delivered early afternoon on a hot day, and had clearly been in postman's van for a while as both were very melted, you could still make out the Iphone, but not the console so much, I put them in freezer to form up and then had to give him as they were, luckily he's in his 30's so we had a laugh about it, he said it tasted good. lol

The chocolates were a gift for my 93 year old aunt who lives many miles away from me so I don't know how she liked them, everyone still being in lock down or social isolation. I thought they would take longer to deliver - perhaps a week - but rather unfortunately they were sent immediately so she received them well before her birthday. Ordering was very easy, the chocolates look delicious and I will probably be ordering more in future - I want to taste them for myself!

Well packaged and arrived promptly. Bought as a gift so no feedback on the quality of the product as yet.

Didn't taste them because the chocolates were a gift, but boy did they look good! Delivery I thought could have been a bit quicker. Once one is used to Amazon...
