Love to take my daughter for a treat every few months and Fredericks is such good ice cream! This morning I had a milkshake for a change, strawberry ice cream, semi milk and lots of fresh strawberrys. Was lovely, my daughter likes choosing a different flavour each time we go. Can be really busy queuing down the road at weekends... More

Wonderful Ice-cream but so busy it could put you off - plenty of staff but run off their feet I still managed a knickerbocker glory which was wonderful

This is undoubtedly a great place to have an ice cream, it's been there for 80 years now. I just don't understand why people drive there, park up then queue for an ice cream. Having said that, doing so is a great social experience and the ice cream is particularly good.

Called whilst on family day out. Huge queue. Ice cream nice but I have certainly had as good/better elsewhere. Girl who served us very pleasant. No complaints just not sure what all the fuss is about.

First time visiting here with my family last weekend! There was people waiting outside the door to be served, so my first thought was that we could be here a while. But i was wrong we were served really quickly and even got a table to sit and eat all our ice cream. The ice cream was delicious, we will... More

There is no better ice cream before you get to Italy itself. The range of flavours is always incredible and the girls in there are always well presented and smiling. The inside tables can sometimes be a bit sticky and hemmed in, but with a queue of 50 or more in the summer, what do you expect.

First time visit to Fredericks even though I have lived within the area for many years. It was a hot summers day when we visited and the queue wasn't to long, however it was out the door and started to increase as we arrived. How would I describe their ice cream in one word? AMAZING!! They have many many flavours... More

Polished off the 10 scoop Frederick's special sundae and it was yummy 5/5 ice cream but it was so busy with annoying children, loud parents and a huge queue. Would be 5/5 if it wasn't so cramped inside. Probably good idea to grab a cone on a sunny day and then get the heck outta dodge.
