Best Ice cream in England

Jelberts produces such wonderful vanilla ice cream I rarely eat vanilla elsewhere. You buy it in a little tub from the shop in Newlyn and walk along the sea front, smelling the salt , and everything that worried and stressed you floats away.

I have been enjoying Jelberts Ice Cream for many years and it is always fabulous. You can only buy vanilla - if you want lots of flavours and colours then go somewhere else but for me vanilla is the classic ice cream and this little business does the best vanilla ice cream I know. I grew up with wonderful Italian... More

Simply the best ice cream in Cornwall, for those young and old who enjoy real ice cream. Having eaten 99's here for over 40 years, and now with kids who need there daily fix when in PZ.. we 100% recomend

It ONLY sells ice-cream (an a few sweets) and ONLY vanilla, yet all us locals know it and queue for cones or tubs - they do one thing and do it extremely well.

One of the most important things you should do on a trip to Penzance is to visit Jelberts Ice Cream shop in Newlyn. Don't worry about the queue's, they know how good the ice cream tastes!

Very simplistic, which means its hard to make it special but they manage extremely well. At first i was disappointed by the lack of favours, but they do vanilla so well you need nothing more!

Fabulous vanilla ice cream, people queue down New Road to order it. And of course Penzance and Newlyn's Golden Girl Olympic star Helen Glover's family still run it, come and see the window display celebrating her win!

Indulged in another 2 addictive scoops and clottled cream while sitting in the sun in Newlyn. It is just the best vanilla ice cream anywhere even if you never seem to get service with a smile. It's a shame that it will close from Nov 5th until Easter. It will be a long winter! It's also a shame that you... More

We have been visiting Jelberts in Newlyn - ( on the main road between Penzance and Newlyn ) now for over 20 years - don't expect swish premises or multiple flavours - It's vanilla or nothing but with the option of clotted cream or a flake and wafers - What you do get though is simply the best tasting vanilla...
