Cinnamon & Vanilla Scone with Award-Winning Lakenham Ice Cream & Fresh Strawberries

To celebrate Wimbledon and strawberry season, we've created a special treat that's as refreshing and welcomed as a summer's day in the UK – our Cinnamon & Vanilla Scone served with fresh strawberries and our new award-winning Lakenham ice cream! This Norfolk County Fresh Cream Ice Cream, known as 'The Connoisseurs Choice,' boasts an exceptionally high cream content and is made using traditional batch methods. The result? A decadently smooth and authentic gourmet-style ice cream. This delectable ice cream is celebrating its 40th Gold Great Taste Award and is free from stabilisers, emulsifiers, artificial flavourings, or preservatives - in fact, it's ice cream just as you would make at home. Paired with fresh, juicy strawberries and our freshly baked scones, indulging in this sweet treat is definitely worth popping in to our garden centre in Clacton this month!

You can also enjoy our new award-winning Lakenham Creamery ice cream by the scoop or in individual pots! Treat yourself to a scoop (or two) of French vanilla, double strawberry or Belgian chocolate flavoured ice cream, or if you're looking for a bigger portion of our delicious ice cream choose from individual pots of mouth-watering salted caramel, Jamaican rum & raisin, rich butterscotch, mint choc chip or lemon sorbet. Yummy!
