READERS have expressed their excitement after a successful ice cream company revealed the opening date of its new venture.

The Handmade Ice Cream Company revealed this week that it is expanding into the Enterprise Business Park off Ironworks Road in Barrow - and will open its doors on November 18.

The store, called The Secret Garden, will see the classics such as ice cream and churros for sale - as well as hot food and a bar.

Explaining what sets apart the Barrow store from that at their original Greenodd location, boss Steven Darvill said: "First of all we have loads of indoor seating and we are also going to be doing hot street food. We have got a bar as well but at the moment its a non alcoholic bar while we're waiting to get our licence.

"We will be doing burgers, flatbreads, hotdogs, all different street foods. We have our own smoker so we'll be doing smoked briskets and ribs, stuff like that.

"It will still have the same thing we usually do like the Tango Ice Blast, milkshakes, ice creams, sundaes, waffles and the churros."
