Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour

Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour is the dream come true for Tony and Lyn bringing the finest ice creams and sorbets to the beautiful resort town of Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey.

Tony has received extensive training in the art of ice cream making in the world famous Carpigiani University of Italy.

Red Boat is situated in the heart of Beaumaris in a beautiful medieval building that has been sympathetically restored to reflect it’s importance as a grade II listed building - built we believe in the 15th century. The parlour has a beautiful modern interior and is a great place to meet and enjoy a delicious ice cream, a Sandwich, Panini or Coffee.

“We want everyone to have a good experience at Red Boat; it’s something a little different with unique flavours and a welcome stop for a relaxing time. We are looking forward to greeting you”

The History of Gelato dates back to the 16th century. There is some confusion in the origin as to where or who really invented gelato. As most stories go, it is credited to Bernardo Buontalenti, a native of Florence, who delighted the court of Catherina dei Medici with his creation. Italians are certainly credited with introducing gelato to the rest of Europe; with Sicilian born Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli who undoubtedly was one of the most influential individuals in the history of gelato, as one of the first to sell it to the public. Summoned to Paris in 1686, he opened a café named after himself called "Café Procope", which quickly became one of the most celebrated haunts of the literary establishment in France. In Italy meanwhile, the art of traditional gelato making was passed on from father to son, improved and perfected right up to the 20th century, when many gelato makers began to emigrate, taking their know-how to the rest of Europe and the States

Gelato in Italian literally means "frozen", but it basically used to indicate the Italian type of ice cream. One of the basic differences between Gelato and the ice cream we know is that it doesn't contain as much air, and is therefore more intense in flavour. In part, Gelato is healthier than ice cream as we know it since it is made with all natural ingredients and contains fewer calories and less butter fat. Red Boat Gelato is made fresh on the premises so that we can bring you the highest quality flavours around.
