Ice Cream

Bears Ice Cream Company is a small independent family run ice cream parlour in Shepherds Bush. Founded in 2016 by an English/Icelandic couple, Phil Harrison and Vera Thordardottir, the shop and brand have become a cult hit in west London attracting locals and travellers alike.

Vera’s experience includes luxury. Phil is a chef with over 20 years experience and together they created the Bears brand. Phil, former Head Chef of The Anglesea Arms, a gastropub in Brackenbury Village, is on a mission to surprise and excite the ice cream lover who dares to go off-piste but also appreciates the more classic flavours. Bearsis the ice cream stronghold in West London and oozes independence, creativity & originality.

In the shop you can buy high quality soft serve, made with Jersey Milk and cream. Bears is inspired by the traditional Icelandic ice cream parlour. In the shop the customer gets a chance to get creative and mix their own flavour by choosing from 40+ toppings. Toppings can be dipped, rolled or smashed into the Jersey milk based ice cream, allowing you to create endless combinations of flavours and textures. Or you can choose from the unusual and exciting menu with signature cones and glaciers created by Chef Phil.

In 2019 Bears launched Bears Scoop Club – an online subscription service that delivers Ice Cream tubs (Sorbets and Vegan Dairy free options too)to your door on a monthly basis for local postcodes. All the ice creams are curated, tried and tested by Phil, who churns them in small batches out of the Bears HQ kitchen in W12. Bears also delivers 475 ml. tubs (without a subscription) to selected postcodes in west London. You can buy your tubs of delicious ice cream at the Parlour in W12 but you can also order online for a FREE home delivery.
