Reviewed 4 March 2018 via mobile

A visit to Newcastle would not be complete without ice cream by the sea, and our favourite is Cold Rock at Honeysuckle. The service is usually good and they have a great selection of flavours. The only thing is parking can be a challenge. But all in all this is a favourite for us.

Sorry, I really don't like being negative, but being an Ice Junkie I found this place very underwhelming. The sorbet tasted like warm yogurt and was the same consistency as a broken down mister whippys soft serve it was really bad. The "Old"favourite Rum n Raisen young staff overworked and flustered, in a not so busy shop.

In amongst the Honeysuckle eateries is Cold Rock. Ice-cream was great. Staff were friendly. It was very expensive.

Um, not sure what's going on here. Went to Cold Rock on Saturday evening and there were a couple of young guys serving. The one who served me picked up my flake with his bare, grubby fingers saying "s'cuse the fingers" - very much like he was handing something to his aunty at his home. I was fairly underwhelmed - no gloves or food handling skills in evidence for anything that I saw. Who in the world is your manager? What appalling training.

We went to Cold Rock for desert and it was very tasty. The kids loved it, especially watching them "smash" Caramellow bears and smarties through the ice cream. Plenty of flavours and additions to chose from.
