Recently we had the pleasure of trying out Ice Cream making at The Works. Great experience and wonderful flavours.

I have been here a few times with my friend Harry and we always leave wanting to come back for more. It’s absolutely delicious, the top of the milk ice cream is just as I remember as a child. ❤️

We love this place. It has a great atmosphere, all the staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is absolutely delicious. All tastes are catered for, savoury and sweet. I could not recommend this place more.

Amazing ice cream, and even better service than Aylesbury. Liked the quieter atmosphere. Scotty apologised that there would be slower service than usual, but his service was quick and so friendly
