Great handmade icecream, good portions. We are a regular visitor here with the kiddies. Cant beat it. However, my only gripe and it drives me crazy each and every time, the unit they have is poxy and service is very slow and can be confusing, they really do need to consider a bigger unit, especially at peak times, i would...

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoy our ice cream and thank you for your 5 star rating, it really is appreciated. To answer the points you raise... Our display freezer (although admittedly small) is the largest unit we can find that will fit through the doorway. Even this one needed the door (and a bit... More

Rays keeps it simple and it's sooo good. Amazing ice cream & sorbets made fresh on site and good quality cones, sprinkles and sauces. Ice creams may seem expensive, but they don't skimp on portions and it tastes amazing, so they're worth every penny! My son cannot have milk and his mango sorbet was just delicious.

I visited Rays while visiting friends in Swindon, and found the ice cream delicious. The staff were helpful, friendly and courteous. Free tasting of the wonderful ice cream selection which changes all the time allowed me to try Guinness sorbet before choosing the divine vanilla ! Looking forward to returning for a salty caramel when that comes through. Recommend popping... More

The ice cream from Ray's is fresh, delightful, and ever-changing - meaning it's always worth a visit. The quality is absolutely the highest I've ever tasted - equal to and in some cases better than the best gelato I've had in Italy or southern Germany. A particular personal favourite is banana ice cream that really tastes of banana - not... More

We had heard good things about Rays so were keen to visit. The ice creams were enjoyed by all and the scoops were generous so we'll be back again. Our only top for improvement would be to find a way to have a greater selection on sale. They have a recipe book of 200 flavours but only 7 or 8... More

We've visited this fantastic establishment so many times - on this occasion it was to buy 'Christmas ice cream' reindeer poo (fab sense of humour) mince pie&christmas pudding! All three absolutely delicious - staff always polite, kind and interested in what their customers have to say - we'll be back to treat our little ones when they reopen in February.
