The ice cream is fantastic, right next to the castle, so good to help you cool down after climbing all those stairs.

My family stopped for an ice cream after visiting the castle. There were some very interesting and yummy flavours such as 'wedding cake'. The peanut ice cream with chocolate was the best of them all and, to me, tasted like a 'Butterfinger' (american chocolate bar).

Great ice-cream! I had a two scoop waffle cone for £3.30 and had trouble choosing which flavour to have as they were all very tempting. I finally settled on the honeycomb and Welsh fudge which was according to the lady one of the most popular combinations. As I'd been toying with the white chocolate she kindly added a small spoonful... More

We called in twice during our short stay in Harlech. My wife thought her icecreams were the best she had had outside Italy. My pasty (1) was really fresh and tasty. Unlike familyfact we found the couple who kept it very friendly and pleasant.

I loved all the flavours I tried; I tried very hard to work my way through all the flavours but failed. I will evidently have to return next year and I would recommend that anyone who visits anywhere near Harlech, and who likes icecream, visits, too.

This place is a must if you're in Harlech. The ice cream is delicious, the fudge is excellent, the bread is super, the owners are friendly. it is opposite the castle so it's lovely to walk across and sit on the low wall by the castle and enjoy your lemon cheesecake ice cream (or one of the other 15 or...

The people that run this establishment have decided that rudeness to their customers is an acceptable practice. They were blatantly and repeatedly rude to our children when they couldn't immediately make up their minds which ice cream to have, even though there was no one else in the shop. They were then rude and abrupt to my wife because she... More

The ice cream here is fantastic, no doubt about that. However the couple that run the place are miserable and rude. The first time I thought maybe they were having a bad day, but the same surly attitude was present the 2nd time. No need for that in a service industry.

The best ice cream I've tasted in a long while, and what a variety of flavours they've come up with. If only we'd been on holiday much longer I'd have worked my way through the whole lot day by day. Good coffee and other Welsh specialities too. Fabulous. A must if you're in Harlech.

I wrote a more detailed review for this shop under the 'restaurants' category but all you need to know is that the ice cream in this shop is truly amazing!! PLEASE go there and eat, eat eat!
