Took my son and his two friends up after school... One negative thing.. you need to expand! It's a lovely icecream shop with great choice, polite and knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices... Loads of homemade ice cream, different flavours with the choice of trying before you buy... Will return for sure.. cost £2.80 for two scoops and 30p for extra... More

Tried this tiny ice cream shop in Old Town Swindon for the first time last weekend. The ice cream was LOVELY I had the honeycomb. PERFECTION! Only issue was that we couldn't move for children running about. The shop is only teeny, when we entered there was no queue but one lady was letting her toddler run around the place... More

What a great set-up. Getting a free taste of an unfamiliar flavour is now something we take for granted (In England, what progress!), but what I love about this place is that nothing seems to go out of stock. It's either on display or "hold on, I'll mix you up a pot". Brilliant. Only negative is there's a lot of... More

I have, unfortunately, only been here once with an old friend of mine, but the ice cream was simply delicious. Its quite hard to put into words without actually writing this review while eating one. I recommend whether you are local or passing, pop in and grab yourself an ice cream, especially now that the summer is around the corner.... More

I popped in today with my children and was greeted by a lovely young lady, she was excellent with the children and let them try whatever they wanted! She made us feel so welcome and I cannot fault the service even at such a busy time. The ice cream was amazing! I had custard cream and it was the best... More

Just enjoyed my first waffle at Rays. Lovely, with apple crumble ice cream, my son had one with Nuttela and marsh mallows! Waffles are a really nice addition to the range of ice cream and coffee!

Popped in for a tub of Vanilla for a dinner party. The ice cream went down a treat, everyone loved it.

I never fail to leave statisfied and made to feel welcome and always leave with a few tubs to tide us over until the next visit. Portions are great and prices reasonable and the... More

Yes, it's chilly outside, rain is even threatening to make an appearance, and it's not even Spring. None of that matters, as it is the day when Rays reopens after a well-earned winter break. There is more selection now too, and my salted caramel and apple crumble flavour combo is slipping down a treat and my daughter is unsuccessfully trying... More
