Having read the reviews we were expecting something amazing but it was good ice cream if your passing but wouldn't make a trip out for it. Plus points for the serving lady changing gloves to handle the gluten free cone.

Many thanks for your kind review, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your honey ice cream, and the visit from the honey bear. Our honey bear visits most afternoons, during the school holiday, but as you say, she never goes far from the honey !

Delicious whippy style ice cream that has a delicate taste of honey. They also have different guest flavours. Reasonably priced too.

Visited for the 1st time last week whilst staying in Tywyn. Ordered the honey and cherry with a honeycomb topping. Fantastic. Brightened up a drizzly day. Friendly staff and wonderful ice cream. Well worth a visit.

Been coming here since it first opened and still love the ice-creams. Should never have got rid of apple-pie as it was the best ever, but the original honey is rather scrummy! Supervisor is really nice and helpful.
