A class act with exquisite sense of taste, invention and discernment, Paul A Young is a former head pastry chef who shuffles ingredients like a croupier with a deck of cards. Black pudding truffle with ginger biscuit and beer? Marmite-flavoured Madagascan chocolate? Yep, they've both featured here. And sea salt caramel, of course: former gold medal winner at the International Chocolate Awards. He has additional stores in Camden Passage and The Royal Exchange, and can also be found at Heal's

The chocolates here are divine! Amazing flavours, beautifully made.

The shop itself is a quite small and feels a little dark. I personally don't think they have made enough of the space.
The service was OK but a chocolate tour had just arrived so we were ignored and just having to try to fit in around the other people.
We bought 4 chocolates which came to £7! Sooo expensive but really worth the money compared with going to Said or Choccywoccydodah round the corner.
I recommend all 4: banoffee, cheesecake (it actually had a crumbley bottom, vanilla mascarpone top, all coated in chocolate), peanut butter & jelly and finally a delicious salted caramel!
Perfect for an indulgent treat or a special present for a loved one.

Although the chocolate's are overly priced they are nice. I wouldn't say that they are worth the price band though, with that said they do taste good and so 4* well deserved.

Simply the best chocolates in London. Expensive yes but if you buy these as a gift (for someone else or just for yourself) you will feel totally spoilt. The unusual flavour combinations will delight as well as the classics. Plus their salted caramel is legendary for a reason.


If you’re hankering for some chocolate and have a few spare notes to blow, Paul's is the chocolatier to visit. Though don’t expect to leave with many of these artisanal choccies for less than £30, as they’ll set you back around £2.50 a piece! There is no doubt quality in each chocolate; the flavours have been thought out and at most, they are exquisite. There is the occasional one that completely misses the mark (marmite should be kept for toast, not chocolate) but on the whole they will bring you total joy (as well as a tear to the eye at your now empty wallet)

The brownies are some of the best in town, but you’d expect so too, at about a fiver a pop! Service is always kind and helpful; they are always keen to help you find the right treats for your pallet!
