Amazing ice cream, the owner and staff could not have been more helpful satisfying our 4 children gasping for ice cream! Excellent homemade ice cream with a great variety of flavours and toppings galore! Can't wait to come back!

Sundaes is great fun and you can see the lady who runs it loves it too. She has designed a number of sundaes which mix ice-cream with cookies, cakes, fruit and donuts. It's not too expensive but very indulgent.
