Great creamy ice cream, pricey but worth it

I spent around £15 for 3 'brownwich sandwichs' - Ice cream imbetween cookies. The ice cream was fantastic and so creamy. Definetly worth a visit. We were lucky to get seats, seating is limited and there was only room for around 8 people at a squeeze. However it is worth getting an ice cream from... read more

I went with my two teenagers on a very hot summer's day. Seeing ice cream made with liquid nitrogen was pretty cool (pun intended) and certainly not something you see every day. The teenagers loved the location in the middle of Camden Market, since Camden Market is a teenager's paradise (all the t-shirts, trainers and mobile phone covers you could... More

Amazing experimental flavours... Best and most inventive ice cream parlour in London if not the UK. I highly recommend 'The Brownwich'. Avoid this place if you're a boring individual looking for boring ice cream flavours.

There's the concept and there's the ice cream. Both are cool. The ice cream is frozen by nitrogen. There are about 6 flavors (you can check them online) - classics i.e. chocolate and vanilla and gourmet, today it was a melon sorbet with salted almonds. Everything is delicious. The downside is the premises as there is not enough space to... More

It was a really hot day, so ice cream very welcome. The product itself was nice enough but had a slightly unnatural powdery consistency, similar to a milkshake that hadn't been reconstituted properly. I found the surroundings slightly off putting too, could look a lot cleaner.

Was worth the visit when in Camden Market. Small shop but great flavours to choose from. Unusual in comparison to normal ice cream but nice all the same. A little on the expensive side I thought, 4 scoops was £20.. from an experience point of view you have to try it.

I'd heard about this ice cream being some of the best in England. Made with liquid nitrogen the ice cream doesn't get the time to develop large crystals apparently and so tastes very smooth. Passed by the outlet while visiting Camden Lock market and had a wonderful marshmallow and mango.

Was desperate to try this place, so on my last visit to london headed there on saturday morning. I had the valrohna chocolate with fleur de sel caramel sauce. I could have eaten it over and over, the smoothest ice cream i have ever had and probably one of if not the nicest i have ever eaten. Well worth all... More

Absolutely delicious ice cream! Well worth the slightly out of the way location. Yes there is probably a queue to wait in but watching how the ice cream is made is half the fun. Worth every calorie.
