A nice view to eat your ice cream on a sunny day, quick service even with a queue, not too pricey either

Fast, efficient service even with a queue. Divine ice cream. Nicholls is an absolute must visit, don't be tempted by the small queue in the shop next door. Can highly recommend cherry Bakewell, lemon & lime and caramel!

There is no denying when visiting the area from afar that Nicholl's ice cream is a must on a lovely sunday evening! Rum & Raisin double cone! Not to mention they can even portion the ice cream to take home into 1L tubs for you...More

Parkgate is a beautiful spot. The views over estuary are fantastic. The ice cream was delicious. Try pear and fig crumble- heaven in the mouth!

The jewel in the crown.. Saved our desserts for Nicholls.. This one is a famous ice-cream parlour in Wirral area.. The quality is top notch.. I'd a chocolate one.. Also the cookies were quite unique, animal shaped which caught my nephew's attention 🙂.. Highly recommended...More
