What a great place to get a treat either in cones or tubs or perhaps a coffee. Situated right on the seafront best the sands hotel. Everything was clean and fresh and the staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

We went here during Pride so there was a queue. It’s rather expensive for what you get. The milkshake was great as was the salted caramel icecream. Not a huge selection of flavours, the chocolate orange was a bit bland as was the chocolate icecream.
