Busy day when I visited, but plenty of staff so wait wasn't long. Banana ice cream - yum yum yum. Yellow banana just like foam sweet taste - just how I love it. Generous helpings and sooo much choice, not just flavours, but types of cone and then toppings too.

Disappointed whilst here at the weekend. Was shocked to hear the staff members talking about other staff members who were not present that night and going on quite rudely about the other staff member. Was extremely uncomfortable in this situation and ended up leaving the ice cream and just leaving. Not a professional work environment at all, quite disrespectful members... More

Have travelled three times from Preston to Fredericks and unfortunately given up queuing twice! People were waiting over 45 minutes. Que moves incredibly slowly. It seems when the sun is out people go to Fredericks for ice cream but the next time I go will be when I happen to be passing and when the sun isn't whetting half of... More

I love this place simply for its huge selection of ice creams, cones, toppings & sauces. & also for the fact that they constantly introduce new unique flavours so it never gets boring. The ice cream itself is delicious. Wouldn't really want to go anywhere else for ice cream as nothing beats it. It's a must try for anyone &... More

Visited here after a recommendation and so glad we did, so many flavours and so hard to choose. Was very busy but served quickly, would visit again for sure and great value.

I like to visit Fredericks every time I am in the area - and am never disappointed! There are always over 20 flavours to choose from. Today I picked chocolate orange and lemon meringue - both of which were delicious. The service is friendly and it is great value. A generous scoop of each flavour in a waffle cone -... More

Love this ice cream shop!! The selection is amazing and it's the best ice cream going. We often walk here.. on sunny days be prepared to queue.. but it is worth it! We had the milkshakes this time and we're not dissapointed.. the waffles are also great!

This place has a constant line out the door on a sunny day. Ice cream here is Devine and can recommend most flavours without a doubt.

We love a treat at Frederick's on a Sunday night every so often. The parking let's it down but we parked down by the canal and had a walk up to earn the ice cream. Queues are always huge and it would be good if they had a menu board of the flavours as the shop is so small and... More
