Cannot walk past Jelberts without popping in for an ice cream , the beauty of this place is simply the ice cream and the choice of home made vanilla ice cream in a tub or cone, with or without flake or clotted cream. Nice and simple without loads of flavours, cone types and toppings to choose from, and reasonably priced... More

Good quality ice cream at a really good price. I didn't think it was spectacular to be honest. Love the idea though - completely home made and 1 flavour. Simple!

Always a bit of a que especially on a hot day in the summer but always worth it. The ice cream is amazing and is very reasonably priced.

Whilst on holiday in the area we asked where the best ice cream shop was and were promptly directed to this shop. It is very basic not what we were expecting but I can assure you the ice cream only vanilla was great and what's more you can have a dollop of clotted cream on top what's not to like.

Home-made and well worth seeking ice cream. There's nothing more to be said really. The queue outside says it all.

A shop which is a Newlyn institution by selling one product, home made vanilla ice cream. Maybe a flake, wafer or clotted cream but nothing else! Cones, but I recommend a big tub.

Ice cream made with simple good quality Cornish ingredients. Been coming here for over 40 years as alittle girl being taken here for a treat. You don't need any other flavors, or fancy shop fittings. Just experience the proper ice cream the Cornish way. Other "parlours" in Cornwall charge the earth for "locally made ice cream" but this is the... More

Visited Newlyn recently. Can't visit the village without having a Jelberts. Best icecream in Cornwall. Great taste. Great value. I have enjoyed have Jelberts for over fifty years. Still as tasty as ever.

I have travelled all around Europe. I have eaten ice-cream in some of the most exotic locations that it's possible to do so. Jelberts make the best ice-cream that I've ever had. It's simply the best, there is none finer.

Only one flavour - vanilla, but with options of it being served with clotted cream or a flake. Yes, cream on ice cream, apparently popular. The best ice cream we've ever had.

Thank Jason D
