THE place to go for your ice-cream!! Undoubtedly the best ice-cream parlour in Ayrshire if not Scotland! (even better than Nardinis of Largs!) Whenever i'm back home its one of the first places that i visit.
One thing i will say against them though is that they have stopped making porridge ice-cream!! :(
The ice-creams are all made on site to a secret recipe and some of the concoctions that they come up with are from left field!!
This is proper Italian ice cream. They sell cones, wafers and tubs, they have even been known the fill tubs that customers have brought in. I know people who make special trips to Kilmarnock just to visit this emporium for their vanilla icecream.
As well as ice cream they also sell sweets the old fashioned way!!! A quarter of Kola Cubes or Rhubarb and Custard sweets for that special ocasion or just to take to the cimema are an ideal treat. They also produce their own raspberry sauce which can be bough in a small bottle as well as drizzeled onto your icecream. If you get a tube ask for the sauce to be put in first and then the icecream!!!
The best ice cream - easily in Ayrshire. Probably the biggest variety of ice cream you will ever see outside of Italy. The forum - as its locally known has a huge selection of jars of old fashioned sweets.
A visit to Kilmarnock is not complete without getting ice cream from the forum.
The best for ice cream in ayrshire.
Huge selection of different flavours all made on the premises. Also a huge selection of sweets served by the quarter.
Can get very busy at the weekend in the evening and parking can be an issue but it is worth it once you taste their goods.
The forum cafe ice cream is the best I've ever tasted (including in Italy!). The vanilla ice cream is delicious, very different to the anaemic stuff you usually get. Unfortunately they discontinued my favourite flavour (blue cloud, flavoured with sambuca) several years ago now, but they still have lots of lovely and unusual flavours. Irn Bru and turkish delight are two of the more unusual flavours that I really like. They also make a parma violet flavoured ice cream that you should really only try if you're a big fan of the sweets (that gave one of my non British friends a bit of a shock!). Their chocolate flavour is amazing! You can buy the ice cream in different sized cones and tubs, and they also have a great selection of traditional confectionery.
simply the best, better than all the rest. i'm sure tina turner was singing about the forum cafe ice cream nardini no more, mancini no more.(apologies to the proclaimers)
