We popped into this shop as we were in the area and had read somewhere that it is Mick Jagger's favourite place to buy mint chocolates! Worth a try, we thought! Well, the chocolates were divine and my daughter had some of the jellies, which...More

We visited JG with friends and it took us over forty minutes to get a table. The chocolate is very good but not amazing. The service is wanting - not enough servers, very bad organisation table-wise. If you're coming for a date, avoid unless you...More
