so many choices and flavours, all very fresh and tasty, no stale cones either, excellent selection and value for money

Loads of flavours of ice cream to choose from. My wife and I opted for a milkshake made with 2 scoops of chocolate orange ice cream. It is easily the best milkshake we have ever had. Excellent service with a smile too.

Excellent ice cream but loads of staff stood around chatting while one person serves. Terrible service and I have been three times in the last month and the same each time. Will go elsewhere from now on.

Great selection of ice creams and some different ones not seen before like chocolate honeycomb.... best of both! Place is always busy and seems to be ran by rather young individuals. Nothing wrong with that, could just do with more of them!

Lovely, creamy ice cream and lots of flavours to chose from! Perfect after a long day walking the coast path on a sunny day. Chocolate Honeycomb my particular favourite!

Thanks for your feedback. We definitely don't take any of our customers for granted. None of our staff are underage, but some look quite young, but have all received training. We will address your issues for the future.

Salcombe ice cream is made down the road. The variety is great and very tasty Portions are very generous. A single is two scoops.

Thanks for your review. It's hard to keep such a great variety but still make it gluten, egg & nut free.

What a selection of flavours. My husband boring had vanilla I wanted something new. Turkish Delight flavour was indeed a delight on the palate.
