Having heard so much about this place over the last couple of years I've finally managed a visit for some of their famous ice cream. It's a lovely set up they have with pleasant tea rooms and gardens with chickens and rabbits to amuse the children which were coming in for after school treats when I was there. The menu... More

Me and my husband took our little boy here Sunday afternoon with our two dogs, sat in the garden, both of us were disappointed as only the usual flavours of ice cream were on offer, strawberry chocolate vanilla bubble gum, I'm used to having more flavours on offer when going out to an ice cream parlour. Staff have no customer... More

I've visited Carlos many times and it's always wonderful. The food is homemade and the specials board changes so there is always variety but it's great if you just want a drink or sweet treat too. The animals out back are cute and add something different to the usual chain cafes. Couple of criticisms: sometimes the food is a little... More

I have enjoyed Carlo's ices for many years and am never disappointed. The ice cream is wonderful and you have an array of choices of favours and the team are all friendly and go the extra mile for everyone. My son loves the ice creams, cakes and visiting the animals in the outdoor area and I would endorse a visit... More

Have not been here for a few years. Went to visit tearoom, sat for a while to read menu then went to counter to order. Lost interest as there didn't seem to be much on display and whilst waiting 2 people complained about non arrival of drinks. Decided to leave as lunch time on a Sunday was possibly not best....

I've been visiting Carlo's since I was 2, so 30 years of ice cream eating there! It is always brilliant: lovely staff; nice garden and amazing ice cream. My personal favourite is a vanilla oyster. I haven't visited the tea rooms (I always get ice cream to-go and go and look at the bunnies at the end of the garden!)... More

Used to go here all the the time as a child. Took one of the people I support here who has learning disabilities very friendly and understanding staff. Amazing ice cream can't get enough of it and love the choice of flavours. Beautiful grounds and outside seating areas!!

Took my grand daughter to Carlo's this afternoon to show her where her Mummy went when she was little. So disappointed. I wanted a coffee and piece of cake and daughter and granddaughter Carlos famous ice cream, only to be told we couldn't sit to together in the restaurant unless they had a sundae. I could understand this if they... More

Stopped in on drizzly Saturday afternoon. Children had a mini sundae - enough ice cream for a treat. Adults had coffee / tea and cake. Whilst the cakes might not win prizes for looks the taste is fantastic. The peanut butter shortcake is wonderful. Brilliantly low prices - great value. Just like cafes used to be!
