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!

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

I love the wide variety of ice creams that your business offers, I came in with my grandparents and they just LOVEEEDDDD the atmosphere. I was served by a pretty girl with long curly brown hair and she was really helpful, even took the time to speak to my grandparents about the promotions. She recommended a mango sorbet which tasted... More

We are a family of ice cream lovers who have been known to travel great distances for ice cream so to find this little gem is amazing. We had milkshakes while we were there, the pistachio was incredible, the Cadbury mini eggs hardly touched the sides and the raspberry ripple was superb. We took home the peach melba, apple pie...

During the warmer months, I buy Ice Cream here every few days. Ray makes it on the premises with a wide range of flavours and frequent new ones - really nice.

I've taken my kids to this cute ice cream parlour many times and stopped off without out them too for the fantastic home made ice cream. Portions are generous, flavours are a mix of classics and unusual but always good. Service is usually sunny and cheerful. However this Sunday we were served by a girl who, when she did finally...

Hi We are SO sorry for the unacceptable service you experienced on Sunday. Having discussed this matter at length with the team member concerned it is clear that she shouldn't have been working at all. (She was suffering the after effects of a triple wisdom tooth extraction a few days prior and were trying to 'soldier on'). Hindsight is a... More
