Cadwaladers at Trentham Shopping Village

Why did Cadwaladers go to Stoke? We are always being asked. What an odd choice. Well, when you see what a fabulous location for a day out it all becomes very obvious.

Why did Cadwaladers go to Stoke? We are always being asked. What an odd choice. Well, when you see what a fabulous location it is for a day out it all becomes very obvious. Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal Award-winning gardens, a Blue Diamond Garden Centre, miles and miles of safe lakeside and woodland walks plus retail to tempt the shopaholic. When we designed this unit we moved to the top of the Premier League of Ice Cream Cafés. This design and style gave us the final block in the building of a lasting Brand. As our largest outlet, with 85 internal covers plus a further 60 outside, with Ice Cream cabinets to give 60 choices, Trentham gives us scope and new opportunities. The latest being the Tuesday evening Jazz sessions and the Thursday evening Blues nights. Both free to enter just buy a coffee or maybe a sundae and enjoy the atmosphere.

Cadwaladers was established in 1927 in the little village of Criccieth by David and Hannah Cadwalader.

Over the years, we have expanded our popular ice cream and coffee cafes all over Wales and England, bringing the best quality service and products to our customers. We opened our Mermaid Quay cafe in May 2006.

We are proud to still serve our traditional recipe ice cream developed by Hannah Cadwalader (which still includes the famously secret ingredient!) and now our specially developed exclusive blend of espresso, hot chocolate and bespoke loose leaf tea, which have been designed to redefine the standards of excellence in hot beverages. Our hot drinks and accessories are available to buy in-store and online at

With our competitive prices, special products and caring team, we can assure you that we can provide options for all the family, including vegan AND gluten-free ice cream, food and cakes.

We are passionate about tackling the environmental impact of ourselves and our customers

We will now be offering 25p worth of loyalty points on our new Loyalty card if you use a reusable cup in-store AND we will wash out your cup (regardless of brand), so you don’t have to!
