Well you just have to try it don't you? It is world famous! I have tasted better but it was good and I loved the way they dip it into hot chocolate which sets on the ice-cream.

As confessed ice cream lovers, always willing to try new places and flavours, we stopped off to give this place a try. It is the Whippy type, which is never our favourite, but was pleasant enough and enjoyable in it's own way. Only flavours I was offered were vanilla or coffee or a mix of both, so could be a huge disappointment for anyone expecting variety. Certainly, it is hardly up to the "world famous" hype, but if visiting the village, worth a try. Expensive in comparison with other places we have visited.

We liked its old-fashioned ambience, the range of products available in the shop, the friendly staff, and the creamy, dreamy ice cream, which we could see by the constant flow of customers is popular with locals and visitors alike.

So much for Famous Ice Cream!! It was just plain vanilla ice cream, nothing spectacular! They didn't even offer other flavours, or anything interesting or add. Not worth the visit.

Succumbing to tourist ensnaring signs proclaiming " world famous ice cream " my wife and I curtailed our journey home in anticipation of the plethora of dairy delights awaiting us. On entering the parlour our expectation was of finding a freezer crammed with exotic and exciting flavours, real fruit pieces, chocolate chips...ice cream!. It's bad Mr Whippy at an over inflated price. If you are ever in the Peak District go to Bradwell and try Bradwell's or if in Macclesfield try Granelli's they may not be world famous but at least they sell damn good ice cream!
