The secret recipe for Jelbert's ice cream should be enough to tempt you. During the season there is often a queue outside as the ice cream is to die for. Straight forward, no fancy flavours, just plain creamy and delightful. You can choose from tubs, wafers or different types of crispy cones. You could go mad and buy a huge... More

Just stop in Newlyn and get some Jelberts - we have been doing this for 30 years and we always miss them not being open in the winter! You will never taste icecream like it!

Jelbert's Ice cream parlour is not on the tourist route, but is easy to find - by asking any local. Their ice cream has been a long kept secret, that no self-respecting local would miss - short of a catastrophe. I t is very close to the Newlyn bridge bus stop - about half a mile, and easy walk, from... More

Lovely vanilla ice cream - that's all I need to say. No silly flavours - tried hard to explain to a kid in the queue why they didn't do bubble gum flavour - interesting experience!

This is nothing more than a shop that sells the best ice cream in the world. Nothing fancy nothing new just wonderful ice cream.
