Rumsey's Chocolaterie is in the very heart of Thame so on festival mornings we literally see it come to life around us, with food producers from near and far setting up their stall's on the High Street. Our team will be busy - as well as our normal menu we will also have stall serving delicious crepes (will chocolate sauce, of course!). We look forward to seeing lots of familiar faces around...

Nigel has been creating chocolates since 1991 and is loving know locally as "the chocolate man". We are very happy that the chocolate man now has a very fitting chocolate van.
