Very popular tiny outlet for their ice cream. On warm days more often than not there are long queues out on the pavement which shows not only how popular this establishment is but also how good the product is. Probably the nearest thing to homemade ice cream- superb and good value.

Seriously, you've got to go. The icecream is just divine. They only do one flavour, vanilla, and as an extra you can have clotted cream. It's possibly the best icecream in Cornwall.

Tub with cream and a flake. There, that's it. No weirdy flavours or silly names to persuade you here. Just awesome Ice Cream. I have a feeling that I haven't gone one year in my memory without at least one tub. Proper!

We were very unfortunate not to have tried the ice cream from here only due to the fact that we had a table booked for dinner. The queue must have been 40 people long! The ice cream must be amazing - sorry we missed you and we will try again next time we are down.

One of the best reasons to return to West Cornwall. The unchanging, delicious ice cream from Jelbert's. With, of course, clotted cream!

Only one flavour (vanilla) at Jelbert's but the homemade ice cream is really good. People travel from far around to buy it and, traditionally, add Cornish clotted cream and a chocolate flake.

An absolute must if you are visiting Penzance. No complicated flavours just good old traditional ice cream with a very unique creamy taste, made all the tastier with a good dollop of clotted cream - fantastic.

Thank julian028
