Best ice cream by far. Family favourite for many generations, from my grandmother to my grandkids. Well worth the money and vanilla is the creamiest I've ever tasted, and still the same recipe as I remember 45+ yrs ago.

After visiting Clyne Gardens on a lovely warm sunny day we walked along the foreshore of Swansea Bay to Oystermouth (about 2 miles) and were really pleased to take a seat in Joe's parlour (22nd April). Had very enjoyable sandwiches with a pot of tea. I had salmon and cucumber, my wife had egg mayonnaise. However, ice-cream is the “Joe's”... More

This was one of the best (if not the best) ice cream places ever! It was totally worth it, £1.50 for a small 1 scoop ice cream. I found the staff helpful and friendly and the cleanliness of the business was immaculate. Would recommend to anybody who comes near me!
