Welcoming staff, tastiest home made ice cream ever and the clotted cream is to die for. Do make it a point to go there -- ice cream is made fresh every day and they are open on Sundays as well. The place is very unassuming and blink and you might miss the shop. We went there twice, the ice cream... More

You must try this delicious homemade Cornish ice cream if you are staying in this area, it's the best I've ever tasted, made locally and only sold here and great value

On a recent holiday to Penzance we walked to Newlyn and discovered this shop. No frills,just lovely ice cream. It reminded me of the ice cream we used to get in Scotland. Only vanilla is served and at a reasonable price I would recommend a visit. The lady serving was lovely too.

This home-made ice cream is really delicious, there is always a queue in the summer months due to it's popularity.

Best icecream ever, I live locally and must have at least three a week because it's so good. Please don't be put off by them only having one flavour, because you honestly don't need anything else.

the shop only sells vanilla but it was very tasty. Good value too - we had 2 cones with flakes for £3.60.

We were enjoying a lazy afternoon drive and decided to stop at this very popular ice cream shop. What a treat. Home made Cornish icecream, absolutely delicious. You can actually have clotted Cornish cream on top or a cadburys flake. I would go for the clotted cream to be really decadent Yum.

A must visit ice cream shop whenever we visit Newlyn. An ice cream shop like no other, just the most delicious vanilla ice cream which tastes superb, especially with added Cornish clotted cream on the top. Heavenly!

It's like going back in time. What does Jelberts sell? Well only vanilla ice cream!!! But what ice cream, made up the road and served straight out of massive tubs, add a flake and a dollop of the finest clotted cream and you are transported to heaven Fantastic

Thank Trevor N
