Very warm today so best to have an ice cream. The choices here are really good and you can have a small taste before if you want. Friendly helpful staff and ice cream was delicious.

This ice cream is amazing and their flavours are quite different to the flavours you usually get. For example, I got malted vanilla with peanut brittle. Yum.
