First visit to Rays, it won't be the last. Following previous reviewers advice I ditched the car and walked to Old Town, one of the hottest days of the year, but it was worth it! Served by a very lovely young lady, the ice cream was sublime. Really, really good. So good it was on a par with ice cream I had on holiday in Rome a couple of summers ago. I can't give Rays any higher praise than that.

Amazing, the choices, then the serving size & then the taste. Back home in the North the best ice cream is a place in Macclesfield and I never expected to have the taste delight here in Swindon. The only thing I can tell is just go and check it out - for something safe to something fancy - they have it all. Also available to take home, just a shame it's a two minute walk from home

This icecream is out of this world
Although parking is a little tricky there is a car park by the coop and it's well worth a visit you can also take a tub home with you !

It's something of a luxury, but Ray's Ice Cream is about the best around. Another review said "Best ice cream in Swindon", but as someone who used to make his own, it's as good as home made. I can't compliment higher than that.

Their bubblegum flavour ice cream took me back to long days in the summer and that bubblegum ball at the bottom of the screwball. The raspberry and coconut is fresh and summery and just delicious.

Swindon isn't known as a centre of pilgrimage for foodies, but if you're here, you should try it.
