Our story

We’re a traditional business producing the finest quality English confectionery from our base in the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Harrogate.  We've spent 150 years crafting and refining what we do; using only the best ingredients, time-honoured recipes and techniques and creating most of our confectionery by hand.  Our creations are cooled naturally to improve texture and flavour; resulting in the finest tasting, moreish and quintessentially English confectionery.

Although our business is steeped in history, we’re a new generation excited to revive those childhood favourites whilst sticking to our principles of quality, taste and fun.

And who’s Alfred English?  Alfred bangs the drum for everything we do, and for having plenty of fun in the process.  He reminds us not to take life too seriously, that it’s good to make some noise, to sing to your own tune, to remember most of us are just big kids at heart.  And that there’s always time for a treat.
