Review of The Pokey Hat

The Pokey Hat
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Oban
Certificate of Excellence
Description: The Pokey Hat is an Ice cream parlour selling delicious homemade Italian Ice Creams. The ice creams are made fresh daily, in house on the premises, we offer a wide range of flavours which change regularly at reasonable prices and in the summer months we are open from 10am till 10pm 7 days a week. In reply to a lot of tourist questions, yes our shop did belong to Princess Diana's mother Frances Shand Kydd at one time where she ran a successful card and gift shop.

Good stopping off place for wide selection of your favourite ice creams. Whether it’s a poke or a tub you can’t do better.

Ice cream right in the city center overlooking the bay. Good service and seating outside in the plaza to people watch while enjoying a cool treat.

They make the best ice cream ever. We came from Kent and this is the best. Great value. You must try some.

We were so excited to find an ice cream shop open at 9.00 PM on a Sunday, only to be greeted by poor service and very unwelcoming atmosphere. Ice cream was below average. The servers did not allow us to sample anything. A few of us ended up with a few flavours we didn’t enjoy. The shop did not accept credit cards. There were three signs in the shop - all negative. No cash, no samples, no guarantee that the food doesn’t contain nuts. Nothing positive about the experience either....

What a choice of fabulous flavours, you can't beat sitting by the water in the sun eating a proper ice cream, spoilt for choice you could be tempted to try them all! Goodbye healthy eating well while on holiday you need a little indulgence.
