The best ice cream anywhere and a shop not to be passed by. It can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

This really is one of the best ice creams around. When in the area I will go out of my way to get an ice-cream from here. Tourist looking this up- This is just an ice cream shop and it only dose vanilla flavor. However it is one of the best ice-creams in Cornwall.

We believe that this is probably the best ice cream you can find in the UK. One flavour, vanilla, you do not need anything else. We have visited the little shop in Newlyn every year for the last eight years and have introduced lots of other people to its wonders. Simple ice cream made to a very high standard.

Tuesday - soaked in pouring rain as we emerged from underground at Geevor, so we needed a Jelbert's ice cream; Wednesday - boiling hot after walking to Men-an-Tol, so we needed a Jelbert's ice cream; Friday - Bea, Flo and Connie scraped their legs on rocks pottering round pools at Mousehole, so we needed a Jelbert's ice cream.

I may have eaten ice-cream all over the world but you really can't beat going back to the best holiday treat in Cornwall. It has to be a large cone and cream and then back for seconds!

I've been visiting Jelberts with my family ever since I can remember and it has always been and I think will forever remain my favourite ice cream. Don't expect crazy flavours or anything like that, just one simple vanilla is the sheer brilliance of Jelberts! Of course you can go the extra mile and add some clotted cream or a... More

Walked from Penzance to get this ice cream. We all agreed it was the best ice cream we had EVER had. So worth the visit. No frils, one flavour but WOW!

I have been holidaying in cornwall for years but it was only on this visit that I discovered this excellent little shop. The icecream is really creamy. The only reason it didn't get 5* was because a small amount if it was slightly crystally. Excellent value and worth the trip

I have been coming here since I was a kid, I now bring my wife and three children. This is simply the best ice cream anywhere, who needs lots of flavors when this vanilla is so good.
