A curiously plain-looking place, tucked into the bottom of a Chiswick townhouse, Foubert’s continues – as it has since 1978, though not at the same site – to dish up a couple of dozen flavours of ice cream in the ultra-vivid colours beloved of under-tens.

Well-textured and creamy, the coffee, rich wild cherry and tangy lemon sorbet flavours came as a monstrous £4 ‘large’ portion in a cardboardy old-style cornet.

The place really comes to life as soon as the severe-looking old lady locals simply call ‘Mamma’ has a child to dote on – you’ll hear an entire dictionary of Italian endearments before your cone even starts to melt.

Delightful little Italian ice cream shop you might not notice if you were in a hurry!

Very old-y-fashioned with tromploi on the walls and bark wooden little booths. Would be a really cute place to go on a cheap date or after the afternoon of shopping.

There were over 20 flavours to choose from, we tried the pistachio which was incredible (the mark of any good ice cream shop I always think, no pistachio no go) and the mint choc chip which was just as tacky as you’d want it.

It's ice cream. What's not to like? OK, they didn't seem too pleased to have customers turn up but I demolished a little tub of pistachio and it was very nice. Because it's ice cream, duh.

An original italian ice cream maker since 1970 on Turnham Green. An institution in Chiswick you should not miss if you stroll down Chiswick High road on a sunny day. Tasty ice cream!
