If you want icecream which is vanilla, served in an old-fashioned shop, but is just the best ice-cream, then this is the place for you. No frills, no fancy flavours (in fact no flavours at all!), just wonderful ice-cream served by hand out of a large tub. Take it round the corner, sit on the bench, or walk round the... More

We can always know when spring is here. Jelberts is OPEN. DELICIOUS. Need I say more? When my daughter comes home from Eastbourne for a holiday. It's a JELBETS a Cornish pasty and a cream tea.

Lovely Ice cream but a tad expensive and often looks a bit battered. Could do with a revamp inside the shop

The woman that sold us the ice creams didn't seem too happy and the ice cream is good if you like plain cornish ice cream. No other flavours available and the shop isn't well presented.

To be honest I really don't like the ice cream from Jelberts and much prefer another local brand. Can not understand why this is listed in restaurants in Penzance! Tourists must be a bit confused when they turn up and find all that is on offer is ice cream and no choice of flavours even. A big dissapointment.

Another fine Jebert's Ice cream from Newlyn. Delicious and great value. Yes, the shop is basic, there is only one flavour, vanilla, but you won't find better vanilla anywhere in my opinion....

Delicious icecream at ridiculously bargain prices. Try yours topped with clotted cream and go the whole hog. We did!

Having heard good reports about the ice cream, I was a bit disappointed with the one flavour they had on offer. I'm not sure what all the hype is about. There are certainly better ice cream sellers locally!

Well I have to admit I have been visiting for over 50 years, I can't say that much has changed in the shop, although I think that the wooden cash tray may have been replaced, don't think the sweet jars have changed though! So it is basic, yes there is only one flavour, yes it's served out of a tub,... More

After Jelberts, any other vanilla is just "plain". Stroll from Penzance and find your reward waiting
