Description: The Pokey Hat is an Ice cream parlour selling delicious homemade Italian Ice Creams. The ice creams are made fresh daily, in house on the premises, we offer a wide range of flavours which change regularly at reasonable prices and in the summer months we are open from 10am till 10pm 7 days a week. In reply to a lot of tourist questions, yes our shop did belong to Princess Diana's mother Frances Shand Kydd at one time where she ran a successful card and gift shop.

Thank you for the compliments regarding our shop name and decor, was a bit surprised on your comments regarding choice, we offer a selection of 28 flavours of Ice cream, all homemade on the premises daily, as well as a large selection of Ice lollies, cold drinks, 20 different flavours of luxury milkshakes, homemade whippy Ice cream, slush and some novelty sweets. We are an Ice cream parlour ! Don't really know what else you expect us to sell.
