You'll end up queuing for up to 10 minutes on a warm summers day. Not because of the slow service, but because when you get to the front of the queue there is so much to choose from. You find yourself wanting everything. So many wonderfully put together ideas. Flavours and combinations you've never even dreamed of. Arguably the best... More

Absolutely disgusting customer service I have ever encountered! Spent over £15 on ice cream only to be told we could not help ourselves to a serviette!! Will never use this place again! Bit of advice go to the ice cream parlour around the corner 10x better service and choice

The kids visited twice and had waffles with various toppings, Jaffa cake and Oreo toppings to name just two , they loved it all. We had coffee and sat outside harbour watching. If you love ice...

Best banana split I've ever had (... and I've had more than my fair share). Kids were very happy with their ice creams. Great range of flavours.

Lovely ice cream with some flavours I've never seen before. Also do waffles and kids ice creams. View to the harbour is great and in a nice part of Barmouth to take 5 minutes for a break.

A day at the seaside and an ice cream. Made for each other. I love all the different flavours. Nice in a cone or a tub. You can either sit in and enjoy, or take away and enjoy as you stroll around. Wouldn't do this every week as unfortunately prices a bit on the high side - but worth it... More

I've been here numerous times and I'm always satisfied with my ice cream. I'm always surprised by the wide variety of flavours of ice cream that it has to offer. I would definitely recommend visiting this ice cream parlour.

Well who can write a bad review about ice cream...... for a start there is no reason to as Knickerbockers is lovely but I honestly don't think I have ever had bad ice cream!!! We opted for waffles and ice cream (so we could sample both) and we were not disappointed! I can recommend the jaffa cake ice cream on... More
