Bev Loves Truffles

Former owner of The Village Coffee Pot, Bev Laimbeer is once again having her own business having sold her cafe in the High Street in January 2016.

Bev has purchased the wonderful 'old school' chocolate shop; Truffles of Lymington in Lymington High Street. The shop specialises in chocolates, sweets in jars, coffee and teas, specialty foods and greetings cards.

Truffle’s has been a confectionery shop for over 60 years and was previously owned by Elizabeth Radcliffe for 30 years. 

The local website says that this historic shop has a well at the back of the shop inside a cupboard, which is said to be well-preserved. Under a concrete floor is thought to be a domed cellar, but no entrance has ever been found. Rumour has it that all the cellars on this side of the High Street were linked forming a smuggler’s tunnel from the quay to the church.

Bev recalls: "I remember going in to Truffles when I first moved to the area 24 years ago and loving it then. As soon as I went to view the shop I knew it was the one for me. I love the shop's quirky uniqueness and don't want that to change." 

The Village News at the bottom on Milford on Sea village green will happily take orders for any of the items on sale in Truffles, and they will be delivered to Mark at The Village News for collection. 

In the coming weeks Bev will have a website and Facebook page showing some of the wonderful items in stock, and we will let you know when it is available.

In the meantime, fulfil your chocolate craving by giving her a visit. I'll be the big bloke at the back of the shop pretending to look for the hidden cellar, whilst eating shrimps and bananas, and with chocolate smeared all around my lips!
