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.

Just spent a delightful 40 mins chatting to James (Jim) in this quaint simple ice cream shop. The shop was recommended to us but due to the weather today (cold and damp), we almost gave it a miss. So pleased we didn't! The vanilla ice cream, an old family recipe made fresh daily, was most definitely delicious but became heavenly... More

If you remember Harts ice cream that was once a staple of a trip to St Ives then Jelberts in Newlyn is as good,if not better. 1 flavour, authentic Cornish vanilla, with the choice of with or without clotted cream.

I have ever had! Better than in Rome or anywhere in Italy. In Newlyn, who'd have thought it! Do try if you are in the area - it's delicious!

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
