Found this little place a few years ago and highly recommend anyone visiting Harlech pops up here. The Bara Brith and proper Welsh butter are to die for. My absolute favourite is the ice cream dragon fruit and hazelnut everytime please. Always found the lady chatty and charming myself

The ice cream is amazing and it is probably one of my favourite ice cream shops it's just the staff can be slightly unfriendly sometimes. I still highly recommend.

The shop's Web site says probably the best ice cream in Harlech. They are fibbing- it is best ice cream anywhere! We had delicious vegetarian pasty with cup of tea, sitting at front of shop looking at Harlech Castle. Brilliant. Will visit again.

Delicious ice cream, generous portions as experienced in this neck of the woods. Sat in the sun at the base of the nearby Statue attended by a tenacious Jackdaw !

Called in for something to eat after visiting Harlech Castle and saw the sigh for Pies. Had a small pork pie each, mine with a blue cheese topping. Absolutely Fabulous! Just solid meat and delicious pastry. Ice creams looked great but we could't manage one after the Pork Pie. Lovely Lady behind the counter. We will definitely go back on... More

Just outside the castle, this was a great find. The ice cream is probably the best we've ever had and service was very friendly. Took the ice creams back down the hill a little way, sat by the sculpture and enjoyed the moment!

The home made ice cream here is delicious. The lady is always friendly and always says hello, especially to my nephew who loves his Dragon Fruit Ice Cream. For the best ice cream, I would definitely recommend this place!

We always make this place a Must-Do on our frequent trips to Harlech. I have never been disappointed. The coffee is great, the ice cream is delicious and the home made fudge is dangerously addictive and met in the mouth. You can also buy a small range of deli items such as home made chutney and pies. It's spotlessly clean... More

Very tasty ice cream, value for money and great views of the castle from the outside seating area. Half scoops great idea, as you could try different flavours. Mmm

The kids loved this place as they had sausage rolls and ice cream all of which were delicious. The flavours were great and you can have multiple half scoops so you can taste more of them. The ice creams here are gorgeous!
