Cowpots Ice-Cream Now Have A Shop In Carmarthen

01 Sep

Cowpots have recently opened an ice-cream parlour and coffee shop in Blue Street, Carmarthen, quite close to the bus station.

I was in Carmarthen on Bank Holiday Monday and went into the Coffee Bar, in Kings Street. I selected from the menu that was on the table but when I went to order I was told they were unable to serve me with a sandwich, as they stopped serving food at 3 o’clock. When it was pointed out that it was only 2.40, they were simply not bothered. One girl then tried to pacify my partner and I, saying that they would cook, but that the one item I wanted was a breakfast item and that finished serving at 11.00am. Again it didn’t state this on their menu. Exasperated, I asked for the manager but neither the manager or the  and owner were available. I left my business card and asked to be telephoned on Tuesday. Needless by Wednesday still no phone call.  Don’t companies want to no if customers aren’t happy? Late Wednesday morning we rang and spoke to the manager who then told us that I was mistaken with the time and it must have been well after 3.00pm and also said she’d not be given our business card. She took our details again and we wait……….

But Monday wasn’t all bad – as walking into town we were stopped by Martin from Cowpots who was offering samples of their milkshakes and encouraging people to visit their shop. Martin, is one of the sons of Cowpots founder Brian and wife Mary-Lou and he certainly got 10 out of 10 for taking the trouble to market their new venture. I then visited the shop and took  advantage of their ‘Meal Deal’ which is any sandwich, a packet of crisps and a hot or cold drink, all for £2.75. Martin is ably assisted by girlfriend Natasha and I’m so impressed by this young couple taking on an exciting venture, despite the tough trading times. Plans are already afoot to bring in a winter menu too. Hopefully word will spread and Martin and Natasha will be rushed off their feet!!!

Cowpots are based just outside Whitland and are one of many superb ice-cream makers here in Wales. Makers of luxury Jersey ice cream, right there on the farm, from their small herd of pedigree jersey cows. I’m sure you’ll have seen Cowpots at food festivals or been able to purchase from most major towns and popular locations including:  Tenby, Saundersfoot, Narberth, Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Laugharne, St. Clears, Craig Y Nos Country Park in the Beacons and of course – Whitland their home town.
