Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I decided to take my children for a after school treat and took them to the parlour. We got greeted with friendly faces and lots of different ice cream to choose from. We sat inside and one of the ladies came over to take our...order, (very patient with the children making their all important decision😅) . While we were waiting for our ice cream, one of the girls came over with crayons and paper for the kids. The ice cream was delicious 😋!! My girls nipped to the toilet and on the way back, the owner gave them a sweetie which they were obviously delighted with. It's a lovely little place to go for that all important treat!!More

Very cagey staff asked 4 times if my five year old could use the toilet and two members of staff completely ignored me and looked at my as if I had horns !!! Asked again and they directed me out of the shop to the...public toilets up past the chip shop . But it was all very hush hush and whispered to me . We’re they embarrassed to talk bodily functions or does a cafe not have a toilet . Really confused I thought all eateries had to have a toilet . My poor daughter was really desperate. Very disappointing that they have no facility for their customers . Use this shop regular and also buy all my Christmas ice cream cakes and igloos here every year . Poor customer service . Us six as a family will think twice on returning . Who would refuse a child the use of a toilet !!!!!!More

I had a tub with one scoop luxury vanilla and one scoop of the honeycomb. Soft, tasty and not too sweet - don’t miss it if you’re in town

I visited this shop late this afternoon and it's unlikely that I'll return. I had just popped out for a few things for dinner and was drawn by the heat of the afternoon to buy an ice-cream. Having bought a single scoop of ok ice-cream...I had a whim to sit in the courtyard and eat in peace. As I turned towards the door to the courtyard I was told I hadn't paid to sit in. Did I explain that I felt unwell? Or that I needed a few moments peace ? No I didn't. I live in a world where one woman would not even mention a 'sitting in ' fee to another woman. Where as a community we look out for each other and show empathy even if it costs us, what, a few pence? I was a solo woman in her late 50's who had just spent a little money in your shop. Would it really have painted you so much to say 'go ahead, you look like you need a seat'? I won't be back and I hope if I ever need help that there's someone other than you around to give it!More

Far too expensive for tiny scoop of ice cream which wasn’t anything special. Wouldnt recommend stopping here. They need to review pricing and portion size!

If you're an ice cream fan then this place is for you. The award winning ice cream is well worth the trip, make the effort! The chocolate sorbet (dairy free) is to die for. Top class!!

Lovely ice-cream, well worth a visit, but never feel entirely welcome as we like to sit in. The flavours are amazing and each year there seems to be new flavours to try.

A shop-front for takeaways, a largish sit-in cafe and a garden at the back for use on hot days; coffee and home-made cakes also. I always try to visit if I am able: I love the ice-creams and my wife loves the cakes!

A cute little parlour with a vast array of ice cream flavours, cones, tubs, toppings, soft and hot drinks, cakes and take away tubs. Fantastic that they cater to dietary requirements too with a dairy free ice cream and sorbet always available. The owner and...staff are always very welcoming. The only snag is deciding which flavour to have!More

So many delicious flavours of ice-cream to choose from and excellent safety measures in place. We planned to visit Fochabers and I phoned the parlour in advance to request a particular flavour. Was delighted that they made a special batch of Blue Moon which is...a family favourite from their range.More
