Ice cream

Was bought a strawberry ice cream from Bonne Bouche the other day. Fantastic!
Also the Downsview blackberry ice cream (from Ringmer) was pretty damn good (from Beckworths, who I must admit I have family connections with).

Bonne Bouche make the best ice creams I have ever tasted - and are one of the few reasonably priced goods for sale in Lewes outside the supermarkets.
I have to include The Ellie in that Huw, as you are charging 50p more for a pint of Stowford than my regular boozer back home. Sorry, just saying.

ADT, sorry if we're more expensive than your local. We now sell Thatchers Gold instead of Stowford, still at the same price so doesn't really help you.
Would love to know where your local is and if they are an Enterprise tied pub (or similar).
I also think that there are some bargains to be picked up around town. Terry's fish shop is very reasonable, again, Beckworths has some good deals, with meats cheaper and better than the supermarket. If you're after booze, the Gardeners is probably the cheapest place in town then the others are much of a muchness, excluding our cider the rest of our prices are some of the cheaper ones in town.

My old regular is up in Bedfordshire Huw. It's got a telly and Sky and stuff but not sure who 'runs' it. (The landlord has been there for 20-odd years.)
Guess Lewes is an expensive town and that's all there is to it.
I see Aldi's have got their 'opening soon' signs up...
Anyway, back to the strawberry ice-creammmmmm

Might have to see what other flavours they do there. Any suggestions on what I should try

Bought an icecream cornet from a van up the dyke the other day and it tasted like cold powder Yuk! Should have took it back I know but my ticket was almost expired and there was a bluebottle about.

Think it was a mango or coconut one once. Awesome.
I complained to the ice cream man at Devil's Dyke last year. I'd taken my parents up there and his horrible diesel engine rumbling away ruined a completely idyllic afternoon.
