When booking a weekend stay in Appledore we were told we must try a Hockings Ice Cream from the van on the front and I’m pleased to say we did. Felt a little bonkers as the wind was blowing and rain was in the air....More

Lots of choice of cones, but more importantly, none of that super whipped, air-filled, tasteless ice cream; simply lovely, “proper” ice cream.

Never tried one of these ice creams before. Absolutely gorgeous . Will certainly be having more of them on next visit to Devon.

Best ice cream in the Southwest. Can’t beat the amazing flavour, and it’s made down the road. Awesome.... my favourite ice cream.

I have tried Ice Creams all over the West Country and nothing compares with this quality Ice Cream made in Appledore. A local family who for many years kept up the tradition of making Ice Creams for the lucky people of North Devon.

Master of the clotted cream ice cream, ask for one with a clotted cream topping! Feel your liver work, however you won't have a better ice cream experience. Should be on your bucket list.

This has got to be the best ever ice cream I have ever tasted. Produced in the village by locals for years. A true gem that you just want to keep a secret. Ps add clotted cream as a special treat

Not only is having a Hockings iIce cream an essential north Devon visit experience but the vans sell litre packs of the vanilla and flavoured ice creams. You can also buy from the factory shop just 200yds away from the Quay

After unexpectedly spending nearly all day in Appledore on a warm day in October we all tried the local delicacy. A lovely creamy vanilla ice-cream. Super!
