A POPULAR Ventnor ice cream parlour has been named the very best in the UK on TripAdvisor.

Crave Ice Cream, on Spring Hill, was top of the list released this week, based on the reviews and opinions of TripAdvisor travellers.

TripAdvisor released the list during the hottest week of the heatwave, and stated: "We all love a gloriously sunny summer's day but of course we wouldn't be British if we didn't moan about it being too hot and what better way to cool down than with a frozen treat?

"All of the ice cream at Crave Ice Cream is made on the premises with flavours changing daily. No one is left out, there are gluten free and dairy free options available too."

One TripAdvisor traveller said: "Fantastic ice cream shop, always queues, always worth the wait. Different flavours available every time you visit, happy for you to taste every one if you need/want to. Lovely customer service."
