“Best by miles. Large tub, with cream. Happy Days!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

As many have said, when in Cornwall you must try a Jelberts ice cream. Many a special trip into Newlyn has been made for this wonderful local delicacy. As a regular over many years it made me laugh to see them listed as the best restaurant in Newlyn, some may regard the menu as limited, but for lovers of ice cream everywhere, it's well worth the pilgrimage.
Don't go expecting fancy flavours, that's not the deal here at all. This is pure and simply the real deal.
If you want something exotic, may I recommend adding a Flake!
Repeat after me, "A large tube with cream and flake please."
Unlike other restaurants in Newlyn they don't make reservations, so do expect to queue.
Happy holidays.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

As we left our B&B today to visit the Newlyn Fish Festival this little ice cream shop was recommended to us. They only sell vanilla but boy was it delicious with a dollop of clotted cream and a flake on top.

“It IS the best ice cream ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

You cannot come to Cornwall without passing through Newlyn on a daily basis to grab a Jelbert's. Low priced gorgeous home-made creamy vanilla ice cream, with clotted cream for the less calorie conscious. Closes for the winter in October, and opens again in the spring, where large queues can be seen over Newlyn bridge.

“Best ice cream - ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Summer holidays as a child in Cornwall meant only one thing - visiting our favourite ice cream shop in Newlyn. My late uncle who lived here introduced us to Jelberts and no ice cream has ever tasted as good since! 20 years on I've introduced my husband to it this week and we're heading back there for a lunchtime treat later today :-) Only one flavour, tub or cone, with flake or without, oh and obviously with or without clotted cream! Delicious :-)

“Fresh from the cow - ice cream!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Who doesn't scream for ice cream? Make sure to get there early before the freshest ice cream you'll ever taste is gone.
