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!

Always go as often as I can with and without family. Service is always great and have gotten to know the staff over our numerous visits. 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

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...
