About us

Please note, we are still developing the site so it may still seem a little rough around the edges, thank you for your patience. Sweets of Southwell is a traditional sweet shop still selling sweets from jars, there has been a sweet shop in this location since the 1920s and hopefully will be for much longer. We also sell coffee beans both ground and whole alongside loose tea. We believe in the fair treatment of workers around the world as well as the importance of local trade, we source our products bearing this in mind, with a lot of our sweets being produced in and around the Nottingham area and still made in the traditional way. Our coffee and tea is sourced from ethical sources that ensure the people growing them are treated fairly. The ice cream we sell in store is produced by Dennetts of Spilsby, traditional ice cream made locally using only the finest natural colours and flavours.

This website is still being developed as are many of our products, we currently have a sweetie cart available to hire and will be selling gifts both for adults and children. Expect to see details of these added in due course, we will also happily consider orders for wedding favours, party bags or anything else you may need, just get in touch and we can discuss this with you. If there is anything you cannot see that you may have seen or bought on the old website, please email or call us and we can sort it for you.

Southwell is a vibrant small town that has grown around the local minster, steeped in history with a National Trust owned workhouse to visit and many historical buildings and landmarks. With lots of small, independent businesses such as quality chocolate, home baking and home interior design, a busy market every Saturday and lots of festivals and events throughout the year, it is certainly worth a visit. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon.
