Yummy Yummy in my Tummy Ice Cream

Upon arrival I was greeted with a welcoming smile, and a friendly disposition. I ordered the vanilla ice cream and let me tell you, It was outstanding! I never knew vanilla could taste so good. The rich, velvety vanilla bean exploded a cream in my mouth and I did like it. We will deffo be... read more

Resurrection can take different forms: when we 'shuffle off this mortal coil' the more combative may hope to find themselves in Valhalla or on the Elysian Fields but most would be happy to settle for avoiding an eternal scourging in the fires of Hell. That there is life after death can be confirmed by taking a stroll from Chalk Farm... More

This place always looked tempting to me. I've had two scoops of ice cream and my boyfriend as well. Ice cream didn't have much flavour was quite disappointing. Wouldn't recommend anyone going there

We popped in to London for an evening ice cream, we knew marine ices had relocated and open until 10pm. Myself and husband had 2 scoops in a waffle basket and our younger guests had the most expensive on the menu, £7.50 chocolate brownie, cream, ice cream, sauce, wafers etc. ours were plenty big, I was surprised the brownie sundaes...

Visited here for an ice cream break. The ice cream was fine. Had a very cordial chat with the staff. It's a family business. They have free wifi and accept credit cards.

Just down the road from it's original iconic site and smaller than it used to be but still a great treat.

Don't be fooled. This is no longer a family-run parlour, having been taken over by the Ponti's chain (who many years ago destroyed a very good Italian ice cream parlour in Tottenham Court Road). We were there well before closing time, but made to feel very unwelcome, and only allowed to sit in the front with cold winds blasting in... More

Rob H, Manager at Marine Ices, responded to this review

Dear FunnyBikeRider I must correct you on one point. The parlour is not owned by, nor in any way is it linked to Pontis. For a brief time Pontis managed the old parlour as tenants of the previous owners. However, since it moved to the new site last August the parlour has been under the stewardship of the Myatt family... More

I had an ice cream at Marine Ices yesterday. Was hot and sunny, and I didn't know what to chose but the very friendly staff made me try some to help me and I finally got the toffee crisp one. So creamy, so tasty!

We had the ultimate ice cream test recently... 150 kids from school tucking in to lemon sorbet, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla. The sorbet was definitely the winner in the taste test, just the right amount of zing.

Visited last week for the first time since they moved from their original location. Have to say, very disappointed! Staff were not very friendly, poor service and the ice cream didn't seem to taste the same. Also, prices are ridiculous! I have just returned from a trip from Santorini (which is one of the more expensive Greek Islands to visit)... More
