Violet the Vending Machine

Violet the Vending Machine

Violet is our one of kind ice cream vending machine, handily located at the entrance to our premises in Anslow.

Violet holds 12 flavours of 500ml tubs. We always try to keep Violet stocked with Dairy Vanilla, Luxury Chocolate, Mint Choc Chip, Strawberries and Cream, and 1 sorbet flavour. The other 7 flavours change regularly.

Price £4.

How Does Violet Work?

Violet only takes cash payments, and accepts 20p, 50p, £1 and £2 coins, and £5, £10 and old £20 notes. She does not currently accept new £20 notes.

On inserting your money the amount will appear as credit on the screen. You then enter your selection code and change is given automatically.

All ages love seeing Violet work as the lid automatically lifts and the mechanical arm potions and sucks the ice cream tub, before lowering and dropping into the hatch for collection.
