When you've grown up on Wirral, everyone knows that when you move away, it's the law that you have to have a Nicholls Ice Cream when you're home visiting. My husband thinks this is hilarious, but humours me every time! Yesterday I had a break...More

Tasty home made ice cream. Long established family business used come out to Parkate as a child. Like the view, the ice cream hasn't changed.

If you like all different flavours of ice do go to Nicholls there is a tremendous selection of ice cream, sweets, drinks, etc. We are lucky to live close by and they don't just do cones but they do larger selections to take home too....More

Visited Parkgate after being away for many years. Nicholls was always the place to go for ice cream. Still plenty of choices and still good even with all the competition available. It might have helped that it was a week day, not so crowded, sunny...More

This location seems to serve the best ice cream around. Not a great selection but you cannot provide every flavor considering the walking traffic is limited.

When I told friends I was going to the Wirral for a few days they said you must visit Nicholls Ice Cream Parlour. I can now see what all of the fuss was about, it is simply the best ice Cream I have ever tasted...More

Ice cream heaven - only problem is there’s too much to choose from - so you have to keep coming back - but I’m not complaining! Well worth a visit.

Hi Princess Takeshi Thank you for your kind review. We have nearly forty flavours , not all on display at any one time! Hope to see you in Nicholls in the near future.

Lovely ice cream, but there are always queues to be served. Lots of nice flavours to choose from, they also sell sweets and chocolates.
