We stopped 3 times to enjoy the epic ice creams. Portion sizes very generous. They sell delicious looking pasties too. We didn't try them but the amount of people waiting to buy them suggests they're very good!

Best Ice-cream in North Devon by far! Good quality, size and price. Gutted I’d eaten lunch or I’d have tasted one of the may flavoured pasties in show. Lovely sun deck in the garden too. We’ll be back!
