Sunday mornings would not be complete without a walk along Alnmouth beach then a drive to Amble to visit Spurreli's! Being a ceoliac means I have to make sure that food I eat is safe. Luckily they understand and cater for people like me. Not only can I have at least 3 of the delicious flavours of ice cream they... More

We descended on this rather innocent looking coffee shop in Amble and I will be honest first impression outside was not hopeful. But on going in the service was friendly and helpful, coffee lovely and most incredible looking cakes and ice creams! My son decided on a lemon sorbet/Sicilian lemon combo and was not disappointed. What a find! Definitely coming... More

Friendly staff, great decor, lovely Illy coffee and above all, wonderful ice cream. We couldn't stay away once we'd discovered it and went three times in a week... Between us we had most flavours and the knickerbocker glory. All delicious but the gorgeous pistachio ice cream wins for me every time. Definitely worth a visit!

Sundays in Amble are very busy, but Spurreli's coped with the huge crowds and the constant queue of people wanting their Ice Cream. Great selection of flavours and 3 generous portion sizes. Also tea's, coffee's and snacks + cakes.

Visited on our way down to Newcastle. We all had ice cream and different coffees outside in the sunshine. The staff were lovely and patient with my 90 year old father in law. The coffee was lovely and the ice cream was great. Massive portions, loads of flavours and very tasty. I left my iPhone there and didn't realise it.... More

From the que outside we thought this may be a good place to visit and we were not disappointed fantastic selection of homemade ice creams sat outside in the large fenced garden with our dog and the size of the ice creams coming out were amazing. Highly recommended.

Very disappointed to be honest.... We've been here before with no problems but today we decided we'd try a different flavour. So the girl serving us did say that the one flavour was a little bit more expensive - fine, but we didn't expect £1.20 more for a single scoop of pistachio!! By the time you're paying for it, it's...

This is the first time in six years that we have responded to a review on TripAdvisor. We enjoy reading good reviews and they are much appreciated, and we take criticism on the chin and happy to learn from them. However we can't let this one go....... Our pistachio ice cream is expensive to make. The pistachio we import is... More
