“Feel about Devon House as about Bob Marley's Place.”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I have been told by tourists and locals, alike that this is a MUST DO! I hear this ice cream is some of the best world wide; another must do which prompts a return to Kingston

“A pleasant family trip out”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

This is a great day to just chill out with family/friends or your partner and view the beautiful grounds and look at stunning Devon House. You can get delicious ice cream (the variety is endless and the queue can be hectic), different foods and drinks here and it has a large car park, making travelling easier. There is also a large grass area where the kids can play and you just relax and catch up.

Nice relaxing place with small shops. A good place to relax and have a snack or lunch. Love the patties and ice cream here as they are always fresh and tasty.
