An absolutely fabulous and long awaited visit to Craves. When we have visited in the past few years it's been out of season.
So worth the wait!! The lovely young blonde lady served us and had plenty of spoons to offer tastings! I made an enquiry about my egg intolerance and she immediately knew which ice creams to avoid and offered special scoops to avoid any cross contamination!!! I went for my first tasting of the rhubarb ripple and paired with a salted caramel. Exceptional service & ice cream - thank you

OMG! The ice cream is just amazing! Different choices of flavours - none of the bog standard ones. It was a very difficult to choose which ones to have!
The staff are lovely and very very helpful. Don't get tired with the any amount of tasters you ask of them!
Go earlier in the day or you might miss out on the more popular flavours as they can run out!
On the last day, we had ice cream for breakfast as we didn't want to miss out on any opportunity of having their ice-cream!

I visited my boyfriend on the IOW for a week in late October and specifically went to this ice cream shop in Ventnor as they had so many unusual flavours on offer. My boyfriend is a type one diabetic, so he couldn't have anything, but he wasn't too worried about me having some, which was very sweet of him. I didn't opt for any unusual flavours or combination of scoops on this occasion, but went for plain and simple mint choc chip, as I love minty things! Very nice ice cream, and the guy who served me was very generous with his scoop portions, which I appreciate. I can't stand paying a lot for ice cream and then receiving so little in terms of how much ice cream you get per scoop! When I visit my boyfriend again in 2024, I would definitely wish to come here during the summer and come back here to try more flavours.
