Great ice cream parlour featuring all home-made ice creams with amazing flavours, as well as offering gluten free cones and cakes. Wonderful and very helpful staff. Has to be visited. They also do coffees and some foods, but I didnt try these.

Vegetarian breakfast, really tasty but a tad expensive at £9.50: one slice of toast, one mushroom, tomato slice, small pot of beans and sauce, small avacado and two fried eggs. Having said that it was delicious. Son had a pizza which was very good.

Thank you so much. We do only use the finest local ingredients which truly aren't cheap, but they do make all the difference to the taste. Many thanks again. Tony

We came back after 5 years and all had superb ice cream. From cream egg to liquorice and blackcurrant all were superb. Excellent service.

Dropped into the red boat while passing as my friend wanted an ice cream. Amazing choices using local ingredients, I had peach and maple syrup. So good we went back the next day for another. Bacon and maple syrup! Fantastic!

As in the name the ice cream parlour rather dominates the ground floor with an eye catching display of a wide range of flavours. There is a full menu of food including all day breakfasts, savoury and sweet pancakes and various sandwiches. There is further...More

Stopped here for an ice cream and the ice cream was lovely, two scoops were two huge scoops and I couldn't finish mine. Customer service was also really good. The cafe was clean and warm.

Have been to this cafe three times this weekend. Each time, the service was friendly, the coffee, ice cream and mince pies excellent. And our dog was welcome. Lovely place.

Hi Not sure how you came to think all our range of flavours contain soya. Certainly all the chocolate ones do. Or any with chocolate bits. We do make a pure soya based flavour for vegans. The above only represents approx 15% of our entire...More

Its true Eric that if you simply put them into the ice cream they would not add any flavour. However, we infuse them into our ice cream therefore they do release their flavour. Tony

Hi, yes we do allow well behaved dogs downstairs in the parlour. Just not in our upstairs restaurant area. Look forward to welcoming you all. Tony
