“Ice-cream heaven, beautiful orchard and space for parents to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Good facilities, pleasant experience, delicious ice-cream. We go regularly so it works for us with lovely, happy staff. Hard to fault: need a wider range of hot food and we think the three quid for play barn is a bit cheeky as our average spend is twenty to forty pounds...... Maybe they should have customer loyalty card and this entitles you to free play according to your spend.

Thank you for your wonderful comments! We try to keep the menu varied to suit a wide range of customers and are proud that all our food is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible. We have just introduced a loyalty card scheme yesterday for the playbarn, so we hope that will please our loyal customers!

“More than just an ice cream parlour - a special treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed ice cream in the orchard. Given chance to try my unusual flavour choice before committing (camel and liquorice). Went back to order tea which was brought promptly although they were busy. Only sorry we couldn't stay for lunch this time as food looked lovely.

“Delicious scone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This place is fab, scones were delicious and also had ice cream which wad great. They also sell their own farm meat which I bought cooked and was very impressed with. Lots of children as activities for them but there are still quieter areas.

“Ice Cream on a Summers Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Took our 2 toddlers to Wheelbirks for an ice cream and some playtime in the Orchard. My husband at I sat having a coffee watching them play. The ice cream was nice with a good variety to choose from (Not the nicest I have had). The kids enjoyed playing as we sat in the sun. Very busy outside due to the glorious weather. Would call again and recommend.
