Don't pass this by

It may look like a run down 1970's corner shop buy don't be fooled. This home made cornish clotted cream ice cream is one not to be missed. It should, and maybe it is, award winning on so many levels. Treat those taste buds. Treat yourself!

I have been visiting Jelberts for over 50 years, and the shop has not changed and thankfully nor has the delicious Ice Cream, with some clotted cream and a flake...heaven! Also a home to an Olympic champion.

As I local I do love a good ice-cream. Cut long story short, this is one of the best ice-cream you can buy. And that is a brave statement as they only have one flavour! Their famous vanilla.

This isn't a restaurant, it's an ice cream shop. It sells simply the best ice cream you can get, anywhere. I'm an ice cream enthusiast, trying local varieties whenever I can, wherever I am, always judging vanilla for consistency. I could list a load here which I think are outstanding, very good or just simply delicious but Jelberts exceeds all... More

when we were weather bound in Newlyn harbour recently everyone we made polite conversation with told us to visit this place for ice cream. It's the most unassuming little place with the name written on the door, inside the place doesn't look like its been changed for years which just adds to its charm. The shop sells hand made vanilla... More

Delicious ice cream served in a tub with clotted cream and wafers. I can't imagine you could find better anywhere. It is the best!

The Jelberts' ice cream shop has been going for years. They don't do anything fancy, just proper ice cream. Topped with clotted cream and a flake it's heaven. Easy to see why the queue extends out on to the pavement on warm days. Fabulous!

The choices are simple here: vanilla ice cream - in a cone or a cup (the latter with or without a wafer) - with or without cream and/or a Cadbury's Flake. And that's the whole point! The ice cream is delicious and is definitely worth the walk from Penzance.

Jelberts of Newlyn is not a restaurant but sells the best ice-cream ever. It is a family run shop and they make their own ice-cream every day. It is really delicious and if you visit Penzance you really must pop over to Newlyn to try this ice-cream.
