very careful with anyone with food allergies-I highly recommend this for those with egg/dairy/gluten allergies. The staff will only dispense from "new" tubs of sorbet for those with allergies

During our week holiday we could have a different flavour each day and still more delicious choices waiting for our next holiday.

Expensive but delicious gelato. I had the toasted coconut which is vanilla based with bits of toasted coconut through it and it was delicious! The raspberry sorbet is also good. The service can be a little gruff but you only need to order it and walk away so it doesn't really matter. We just had 1 scoop in a cup... More

Great ice cream in a wide variety of flavours with several non dairy options. A far better alternative than wicked ice cream across the road. A beautiful shop clean efficient friendly service. So why a four? No samples! Always comes across very negative just take the hit and smile. Lots of fuss over the non dairy options cross contamination etc.... More

I'm mostly outraged by the fact they don't allow taste testing which almost pretty much all other shops allow. The ice cream tastes pretty ordinary, nothing special. It's not very creamy and taste is artificial. Staff are also not very friendly. They only accept cash.

Admittedly we may not have gone except we won a voucher at the pub raffle! The chocolate sundae was delicious with all of the right ingredients. Not sure about the price as we won the voucher. Ice cream was creamy chocolate yum.

They don't do tastings which is fine. However after I tasted my scoop of choc chip I know why.... You wouldn't get past the tasting. Yuck!!!!

You must try Shakes sorbet. It's just incredible. I don't have a sweet tooth; it's creamy perfection is just heaven. I'm addicted!!
