So, what is Gelato?

Finest Ingredients

From our Somerset milk to the pistachios we source from Bronte in Sicily, we only accept the very best that nature can offer to put into our gelato.

Lovingly Churned

Our gelato chefs' create everything we do from scratch; and they take their time, lovingly churning that little bit slower to make it even creamier.

Fabulous Flavours

It's not just the regular eleven firm favourites that you’ll find in our gelateria, our chefs dreams up new seasonal flavours for our award winning sorbetto and gelato.

Low fat, rich creamy texture, intense flavour - so you can eat twice as much!

Gelato typically has 50% less fat than traditional ice cream, but it tastes much creamier. The creamy texture comes from the way it’s made, slow churning instead of rapid beating, a process which adds air and volume to ice cream.

The Gift of Gelato

Give someone a moment of joy with our gift cards. Perfect as a present for the gelato lover in your life. Available from £10 in our Gelato Bar.

Warmer in Winter

Gelato is served at a higher temperature, around -12c vs ice cream which is served at -18c. It melts quickly on your tongue to release scoop loads more flavour.

Affogata, drowning in delight

We have a whole range of delicious hot and cold drinks, from SwoonShakes, using our very own gelato, to Speciality Bluebird teas and real Neopolitan coffee.
