A lot of flavors of really delicious ice cream. The store is named for a woman once accused of witchcraft. You can buy a book about her in the shop. Most importantly, delicious ice cream!

We stop here every time we are in the area. Great flavor and texture in all the ice creams we had. A little expensive but worth the splurge every now and then.

Their ice cream is really good! Tastes homemade. They have so many flavors to choose from and they usually come up with new ones to go with the season. Always nice to stop by

I really enjoy a dish of almost any flavor of ice cream at Goody Bassett's topped with their warm peanut butter sauce. There are old photos and maps on the wall and memorabilia about Goody Bassett, the Stratford witch, so anyone who's interested in this local legend will enjoy them. There are a couple of benches inside and outside, though... More

My kids beg me to go to Goody Bassett's all the time. They love the ice cream. I've had great and not so great flavors. The atmosphere is a little dreary and there are no tables. There are benches out front to sit and enjoy your ice cream. It's one of our favorite places for ice cream in Stratford and... More

De-licious ice cream! An excellent choice for good old-fashioned ice cream in a cone or dish! They have a good selection of flavors and the staff is friendly

I was concerned about this review of our service. I viewed our video surveillance and found that most inappropriate behavior from this group. For over 10 minutes, while other customers waited behind them, they were continually taste-testing, reaching over the sneeze guards and touching serving items and acting poorly for adults. The video clearly shows my workers greeting them when... More
