Sat outside in the blazing sunshine overlooking the sea and mountains and could be forgiven for not wanting to be anywhere else in the world at the time! Lovely selection of ice cream and cones, can taste the creaminess, you certainly get what you pay for. Lovely little place which deserves a visit on your next trip to the seaside... More

We visited with our little ones during bank holiday so the queue was out the door. It was certainly worth the wait, the ice cream is delicious, we particularly enjoyed the little chocolate chips within the ice cream. Our boys normally struggle to finish a whole ice cream cone but not these ones! Proves how nice it was & we... More

The ice cream is great. Busy, in season, with queues through the door as the servers concoct knickerbocker glories for some. The wait is part of it, somehow. Anticipation, noseying what others are having, listening to the chat. There's no sense of urgency here. It's holidays and ice cream's all part of it.

If it's a nice afternoon there no harm in a bit of indulgence - we splash out on a big sundae or banana split and don't need to eat for a while afterwards...yum!

We used knickerbockers a few times on our visit to Barmouth, the kids were spoilt for choice! I couldn't count how many different flavours of Ice cream they have! Also the creme egg waffle dessert was to die for! We will definitely return if in Barmouth again! 👍🏻

This place serves mediocre ice cream - nothing to get excited about. It lacked creaminess- enough said!!!

Visited on a sunny sandy, so there was a bit of a queue. My daughter and me both had a 1 scoop tub and it came to £5 which i think is a tad dear. My daughters ice cream was lovely as was mine but it tasted more like banana then melon. The main reason for visiting was the great... More
