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.

A small shop that sells the most delicious ice cream you're likely to find, served by friendly, knowledgeable and laid back staff. Ice cream cakes are a must for a birthday or other celebration and the variety of ice cream for sale is interesting and always amazing! sweets and cake to buy too....if you're in Swindon, don't miss it!

a real plus for old town when this opened which we love to visit to try a new ice cream flavour and sit and watch the world go by.

Went here after skipping desert at Pizza Express with friends. Everything about it is excellent. They regularly change their ice creams... whats more, all ice cream is home made. I know what youre thinking... home made ice cream is not as good as a proper seaside Mr Whippy. Well, this is a different league. Cant recommend this enough. I wouldnt... More

Been today, great service, nice choice of ice cream, guiness, peanut butter and choc, forest fruit sorbet among others. 2 of us had yogurt ice with a cherry swirl and 2 had honeycomb. Price compares with most seaside places, price of drinks really cheap. If we had not been going for a walk round the park would have bought some... More

Lovely ice cream, great choice, friendly staff. However, this small outlet has a few tables and chairs and serves drinks for consumption on the premises but has no toilet for customer use which I found quite surprising and not very convenient, especially when visiting with small children.

I had an amazing chocolate sorbet from Ray's this afternoon! It was like eating the inside of a chocolate truffle, but frozen. No boring fruit sorbets for this vegan! It was lovely to have an delicious dairy-free option, I am very impressed, and I will definitely be coming again!

Found this place through an advert in the Evening Advertiser and I've already been more than five times! Great flavors that change every time you go, always a friendly face to serve you and an all round wonderful experience that I'd reccomend to anyone in Swindon
