Our Service

Our ice cream tricycles provide the perfect treat for those occasions when you really want to celebrate in style and provide your guests with a real wow factor. 

Weddings, parties, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, graduations, proms, christenings - we cover all kinds of occasions.  Our courteous and friendly staff can serve your guests at any time of the day or evening, and the flexibility of the tricycles allows us to serve indoors or outdoors – perfect if you have a venue with some alfresco space.

For weddings, the ice cream service is ideal for guests to enjoy when the photos are taking place, on arrival to the wedding breakfast, in place of dessert, or even early evening to compliment a buffet or bbq.

Our ice cream service will leave a lasting memory for you and your guests.

Our ice cream tricycle service includes:

  • A choice of 5 flavours from our extensive menu of luxury Cornish ice creams and sorbets which are all gluten free and vegetarian.
  • The option of small or large, plain or chocolate dipped crunchy waffle cones.  We also supply tubs and spoons for those who would prefer not to have a cone.
  • A beautifully decorated side table with chocolate flakes, fudge sticks, 4 varieties of ice cream sauces, sweet strands and nuts.
  • Decoration of the tricycle in coloured ribbons or a theme of your choice
  • A friendly, fully trained and smartly uniformed staff member to serve your guests for up to 2 hours. 

We are happy to provide additional hours for a small charge.

We are happy to cater for any size event from 50 guests upwards and will always help with special requests. 

For large events we would always provide two tricycles so your guests do not have to wait and everyone can enjoy an ice cream. Our ice cream tricycle service starts from £335 plus a nominal fee for mileage.

Charity Fetes

If you’re organising a charity or school event, we can help you with your fundraising. 

As the ice cream vendor at your event, we will donate 10% of our sales from the event to your chosen charity, and we won’t charge an attendance fee. 

We just ask that events are for a minimum of 200 people, we are the only ice cream vendor and that the event is in a 20 mile radius of the Southend area.  

We can also provide candy floss and popcorn if desired.

We are also happy to attend charity events further afield, please contact us for details.
