    The service is excellent friendly staff and our little dog enjoyed the doggy ice cream with a little Bonilla on top. Lovely if your out walking and fancy an ice cream

    Visited here on the last day of our hols. Visit Hawkshead regularly. This is a gem of a place. Friendly service and quality in the ice cream. One scoop was enough!

    This is our 4th visit over a 2 year period to this ice cream shop. The flavours are amazing, especially Kendal mint and the carrot cake was the best ice cream I've ever had! Our issue is with the main lady serving, our son has a nut allergy so we ask for then to wash the scoop thoroughly before serving, she said she would but she'd prefer us to buy from an other shop. But we insisted we'd have one as we carried an epi-pen. All was well. This holiday we had one on Monday and they washed the scoop no problems, but randomly yesterday the lady refused blankly to serve anyone with a nut allergy! What flabbergasted us is if the ice cream is made on the premises how can they not guarantee it's nut free!? Surely they could. How upsetting for my son when we are all having flavours like rocky road, biscoff and mango and then he is refused. We ended up having to have words with the lady saying how come we were served the previous day, and the previous year? She served us eventually but not the customer service you would expect. On an other note they boast 22 flavours, yesterday they had about 8 and many of those were dreggs at the bottom of the containers, So basically the ice cream is amazing but customer service not great and agree with previous reviews slow service.

    The best ice cream ever, lots of flavours too. Gluten free options too, which you dont always get. Portion size is massive. Loved it

    As my son said "best chocolate icecream he's ever had". Great selection of flavours and friendly staff.

    Huge selection of flavours, and different types of cones. These aren't cheap but they're huge, and filling and well worth a try. We had them 3 times!

    This is a small ice shop in the middle of the high street. The choice, serving and service is awesome. The only drawback is the timing... Too little.

    We stopped here on a whim and weren’t disappointed. Beautiful ice cream with a wide range of flavours and cones available. Biggest two scoops I’ve ever seen in my life! Would definitely recommend.

    Ok so it wasn't the best weather for ice cream, but we stopped for one anyway. We were REALLY glad that we did. The ice cream was simply delicious, and we cant recommend it enough.

    Fabulous ice cream shop - especially on a lovely day when you can sit outside in their seating area in amongst beautiful Hawkshead. Really unusual flavours of ice cream and a variety of cones. My main comment would be that they are very generous with their portions and our 'one scoop' was huge - more like three scoops! If you love massive ice creams then ask for the waffle cones (larger), if your appetite is smaller then stick to the traditional cones and even ask for a child's portion. Well worth a visit.

    Visited Hawkshead on a recent trip to the Lakes and called here for ice cream. Wow! So many flavours! I had key lime pie flavour which I have never seen anywhere else and would highly recommend. It was delicious. I also really wanted the carrot cake flavour (I'll have to go back again!). All 5 of us really enjoyed our ice creams. The staff in the shop were very helpful and friendly. Just to add, the village is beautiful. We will definitely be going back.

    After lunch we opted for an ice cream here before leaving Hawkshead to return home. There is a sweet section too so we chose a couple of bags to take with us. We opted for raspberry ripple ice cream in waffle cones. It was delicious! Seating inside and out it is a nice place to rest and people watch. They also do an ice cream for dogs!

    We popped to Hawkshead for a visit and stumbled across The Little Ice Cream Shop. Lovely place to sit outside and rest the feet. Enormous portions of amazing ice cream and they even have dog friendly ice cream (although Roxy seems to enjoy eating mine more!) could not recommend this more.
