Vintage ice cream trailer hire in Cornwall & Devon

Cecil On Ice is the perfect accompaniment for any wedding in Cornwall & Devon. Cecil On Ice is a vintage 1972 Archibold Scott purpose built ice cream trailer, rescued from a barn and lovingly restored to entertain as a ice cream and mobile cocktail bar.

With our beautiful pastel green, pink and cream paint job we create a wonderful addition to any wedding. 

We are totally flexible when it comes to booking us for you special day. You may want us to just serve ice cream as an alternative to dessert. Or perhaps you would like the whole shabang, ice cream & cocktails all day long. Whatever you decide we are on call to offer advice and discuss creating your perfect day.

How it works

We charge an attendance fee which once paid secures your date. We will never book more than one event for a day so you have us for as long or as little as you like. You then simply decide what services you would like from us. We can simply serve ice cream to your guests, or do ice cream and coffee and tea, or you can choose to have the whole repertoire of what we offer and let us cover ice cream, cocktails and coffee and tea.

Ice Cream

As a working ice cream van we always have Vanilla, Strawberry and Belgian Chocolate in stock and these are available for your wedding. However, we have also began to produce our own Handmade small batch ice cream in both dairy and non dairy (vegan) versions.  Some flavours we have produced include Cornish Salted Caramel, Fresh Mint and Dark Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Coconut, Cornish Cream Tea, Lemon Curd and Marscapone and many more. We charge £2.00 per single scoop on either a waffle cone or cup. Ice cream can be pre-paid or tallied up on the day, then invoiced after.


Starting from £5.50, We have our totally unique ice cream cocktail menu which you can download below. However, we also create bespoke menus for your event, so let us know if you have anything particular in mind. Where possible we use local spirits such as Tarquins Award Winning Cornish Gin and Rathlee’s Cornish Rum. Our signature G&T’s or as we call it a T & T (Tarquins Gin and Fevertree Tonic)Consists of Tarquins Award winning Cornish Gin with Fevertree Tonic and a citrus and thyme garnish. Our aim is always to be creative so if you  have any mad cap idea let us know we would love to hear it.

Coffee & Tea

We now have added a coffee machine to our list of services. We can serve freshly ground Cornish coffee at the push of a button. We can offer, Cappuccino, Latte, Espresso, Americano and a good old fashioned cup of tea.
