Snugbury’s

Do Brits love ice cream? You sherbet we do. A short drive from Crewe is Snugbury’s, Cheshire’s famous ice cream factory, where the forecast is always sunny with a chance of sprinkles.

Back in 1986, the Sadler family started making ice cream in their farmhouse kitchen. With delicious fresh cream, only the very best ingredients and an old Kenwood Chef, Snugbury’s was born. They soon outgrew selling ice creams from their kitchen window and converted an old barn in the cobbled courtyard. Thirty-odd years on, sisters Hannah, Kitty and Cleo now run the business, having taken over from their parents Chris and Cheryl.

The original barn is still home to the famous Snugbury’s ice cream shop and the next generation of Sadlers have continued their parent’s passion of using only the best ingredients. With so many flavours to choose from, it’s no wonder that the double cone is the biggest seller. Will it be Death by Chocolate, Rum and Raisin, Cappuccino Coffee, Cherry Blizzard or Sloe Gin and Damson? Our favourite has to be the enigma known as ‘Yum Yum’; vanilla ice cream swirled with toffee sauce, pecan nuts, chocolate, biscuit and toffee. They haven’t advertised for a taste tester, but we’ll be first in line if that vacancy ever comes up.

Snugbury’s is a very popular place, but the introduction of a drive-thru means your visit won’t become just another manic sundae. It’s the best ice cream for miles and you always get a big smile and a friendly hello. Snugbury’s is also famous for its 40ft straw sculptures which greet you on arrival from the outside field. There’s a new sculpture every year which inspires look alike ice cream cones and raises money for a different charity; we won’t ruin the surprise but you’ll definitely be buzzing on your next visit.
