We had ice cream they were nice, the salted peanut was delicious and unusual. The strawberry and chocolate also very good. Staff lovely and did find some extra strawberry sauce to squirt onto the top of the ice cream at the request of my little boy. Alarmed to see blue bubble gum flavour ice cream, I would prefer them to... More

This is only a small place but they do very good ice cream. Made on the premises with a window to view the operation. Reasonable price, polite staff and seating outside.

Went here as was recommended. Coffee lukewarm. Hair in the ice cream. Unhelpful staff n omg over £20 for 5 small ice creams n 3 coffee. Never ever again. Apparently I have to give a rating because zero or less isn't allowed

I read this was highly rated on TripAvisor and I would echo that. Nothing fancy or pretentious, just delicious hand-made ice-cream. Staff very friendly. Good value for money. Cappuccino was extremely good too! Highly recommended!!

There are loads of lovely flavours to choose from too many to list here but they all make your mouth water when you are trying to choose. Served by friendly staff and made fresh on the premises. The beauty of it is the Gelato has... More

Always a delicious range of flavours - on our visit this week the selection included salty peanut, watermelmon, cappucino and bubblegum. There are always around 20... More

We stumbled across this place accidentally (not knowing it was top rate on TripAdvisor!) as we wanted some ice cream. I was going to get an ice cream van type ice cream but we opted for this place instead. When I walked in, there were a huge array of flavours of ice cream. How could I choose! I settled on... More
