We make a special visit here whenever we stay in nearby Anglesey. Put simply, the ice cream is divine! Love the choices - today's were Blueberry, Jam Donut, Bounty, Oreo, Chocolate, Toffee, Rum & Raison, BubbleGum, Haribo. I chose elderberry & ginger and I can't find the right word to describe how scrumptious it was! Am hoping I'll be in... More

Delicious ice cream! Good value for money and excellent choice of flavours. Our family enjoyed Bailey's, chocolate, bounty, white chocolate and cherry, mint and smarties. All the ice creams were delicious and the portions were generous. The children loved the sprinkle cones and the little Welsh flags were a lovely touch. We felt the prices were very reasonable and the... More

we could see this place through lots of the windows and arrow slits of the castle and promised ourselves an ice cream once we'd climbed all the castle towers. This did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious home made ice cream, reasonably priced for generous scoops. My son declared it the best he'd ever had!

We went there because there seemed to be a lot of choice for ice-cream and were pleasantly surprised. We thought they had a lot of choice, and very creamy ice-cream. Not the cheapest place, but well worth the money!

Whilst passing on our way to visit another ice cream shop, we chose to eat here due to the large crowd outside (we saw this as a good sign, as well as checking the TripAdvisor reviews). Upon entry, I was surprised by the lack of choice, and had hoped for some unique non-fruit based flavours, due to the ice creams... More

We had lunch at the adjacent pub and watched the constant stream of customers queueing to purchase their superb ice cream. We had to try it and were not disappointed. The chocolate dipped waffle cones are delicious and the ice cream the best we have had in Wales. There are many interesting flavours, but we settled for Mint Chocolate Chip... More

This is an amazing ice cream parlour and cafe. It has a vast range of home made ice cream flavours to make the mind boggle, the only problem is how to choose.......
