Ice cream was amazing & also a bit of a ‘show’ , kids would love it ! I will go back ! Limited choice of flavours & little bit pricey !

Went here a few days ago and had vanilla ice cream. It was honestly the best ice cream I've ever had. Really creamy and cool. I enjoyed seeing how it was made too. I'll be coming back for another flavour soon 😊.

Do you have to wait a few minutes while they make it, yes. But! as it’s probably the best ice cream you will probably ever have, who cares👍

Paid £12 for four scoops of ice cream...I must be mad! It was three different flavours to be fair. Novel thing to do for all ages. Was good to watch the 'scientist' at work. Tasted amazing mind

Such a fun place to visit. Staff was excited to tell us about the dishes and make suggestions. Got the s’mores and brioche toast dessert specials. We were not disappointed. Ice cream was fantastic.

Where do I start? I was recommended this place by a friend who lives near Cardiff but beyond that had little idea what to expect. The website and reviews below will explain what happens in far better detail than I can but I will add...More
