Delicious Ice cream with a variety of flavours to choose from, is served at this very busy establishment. My favourites were coconut and creme brulee. Well worth a visit.

Best ice cream I’ve ever had. All Flavours available. I had ferrero rocher and it was amazing! You can have standard flavours or ones with chocolate bars in such as bounty, snickers etc. Been twice in two days
