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.
