Valenti's was a spur of the moment visit - a good place to watch Calstock regatta. All our party agreed that we had to best ice-creams ever encountered in the UK. And, a loyalty card is an added bonus and incentive for return.

We popped in here for a desert after a disappointing Chinese meal nearby both having a Tamar sundae. Two scoops of ice cream with toppings and squirty cream. Really delicious and I thought great value. Very clean including the tables. Skip desert at your restaurant...More

Ordered the humongous sharing sundae with my partner, with 5 flavours. He couldn't get enough of the strawberry while I loved the caramel and chocolate. OH not normally a dessert person but has been pestering to go back ever since.
