“Good but not great though I may be spoilt”
Review of The Pokey Hat

The Pokey Hat
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Oban
Certificate of Excellence
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.

“Good but not great though I may be spoilt”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

There are two excellent ice cream parlors on the Tyneside coast which probably spoils me a bit when it comes to ice cream. The ones we had here were ok but the strawberry flavour was a bit on the weak side and would just rate them as average, sorry. Nice decor and staff though.

“Lovely ice cream”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The ice cream is top quality and a good variety of flavours. A £2 cone is big enough and has plenty of ice cream. Yummy!
