Amazing, the choices, then the serving size & then the taste. Back home in the North the best ice cream is a place in Macclesfield and I never expected to have the taste delight here in Swindon.

This icecream is out of this world Although parking is a little tricky there is a car park by the coop and it's well worth a visit you can also take a tub home with you !

Our favourite place in Swindon for a treat. My daughters love being able to taste the flavours before they chose. Both daughters are coeliac and they can still choose lots of flavours.
