A delightful ice cream parlour, full of an amazing variety of ice cream flavours and also sorbets, which we purchased for a post fish supper treat!

Fast, efficient service even with a queue. Divine ice cream. Nicholls is an absolute must visit, don't be tempted by the small queue in the shop next door. Can highly recommend cherry Bakewell, lemon & lime and caramel!
