As locals, we love a Hockings! Whenever anyone visits we always insist on taking them for a Hockings and they love it! We’ve even gone so far as to buy our own tub so we’re never without

This well established Appledore ice cream maker has several vans located at key places throughout the area. A unique quality product which enjoys a great following.

Finding Hockings ice cream two days in a row has been a real treat. It is the best ice cream I have ever tasted.
