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... 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
