More than just an ice cream parlour

It's like stepping back in time when you enter here. 50's style decor...very busy venue but enough staff to prevent the waiting time from being too much. My only criticism would be that the staff need to slow down slightly when taking the orders. We asked for NO wafer in my ice cream due to... read more

We couldn't criticise what we had, but it wasn't anything special. The jacket potatoes all had a good amount of filling and it was all hearty,... More

Wonderful home made ice creams to die for. Go fo a long walk first then you don't feel so guilty! Opposite there is also a seafood stall so you can really reward yourself!
