  • Beautiful place in the heart of the city. Best place to spend with family in weekend. Also should try the restaurants and ice cream. one of the best ice cream tried around the world.  more »
  • Great Ice and very good experience 👍. They allowed me to sample all the best flavors. After sampling everything, I went with the rum and raisin. It was amazing. The estate is large and filled with lots of things to do and see.
  • Always a must to have some ice cream,too much flavors to consider but the stout and grate nut can start with. The wait is not that bad even though it can get really crowded at times. One suggestion Devon house team try change those normal cones to some wider tops almost like the sugar cones ones to hold the ice cream hope you will see and consider but love the place and different amenities that comes from shakes,cakes and sandwiches and a nice clean place to sit and rock up a good conversation.
