From the moment we found her in 2011 in somebody's garden shed, Belle has been a real labour of love. Originally a "Smiths of Gateshead" ice cream van conversion in 1963, we've made sure to retain all of the beautiful original features that make Belle so special. A couple of our personal favourites are the classic Morrison's 'balloon man' ceiling and original Tonibell cow on the roof. We've also fitted her with a generator so that she can run without electric and installed a classic Carpigani soft ice cream machine so that she can serve our signature 99 flakes.

Since her completion in 2012, Belle has brought a smile to hundreds of faces. She really does excite and amaze people at weddings, parties, festivals, classic car shows and seaside locations. 


Power supply: 1 x 16 amp single phase / integral generator

Dimensions: 4.5m x 1.7m 

On Belle's menu: Delicious creamy soft ice cream served with Cadbury 99 flakes and a variety of tasty toppings including sauce, sprinkles and nuts. Belle also sells classic old favourites including oyster shells, pop-eyes, high balls and traditional ice lollies as well as soft drinks. In the winter months she attends Christmas markets selling luxury hot chocolate with Baileys, coffee with Amaretto and mulled wine.
