My friend got married yesterday and she surprised us with ice cream. They used the venue's hatch that normally served food for rugby players but today was ice cream, they even had little signs up saying what they had :) It was lovely ice cream - a real treat. Thanks

This is absolutely the best ice cream, made by people who clearly love what they do. The selection of flavours is extensive, meaning I need to go back approximately every day for a month!

Whenever I visit Bath, I ALWAYS come here for a huge cone. The flavours are truly delicious - many different types, all fresh and gorgeous. It is on a small street behind the Cathedral. Interestingly, it is not the only ice cream shop on this street by any means - BUT it is the only one with (usually) a queue... More

Visited the shop and was excited to see all the flavours - gingerbread, lemon, peach, melon! I opted for chocolate and was not disappointed. A large helping at only £1.95 the ice cream as creamy and tasty! We will be back!

After a chilly early evening there is nothing better than to try an Italian hot chocolate here. What a way to warm up, it was very lush and i will be back.
