Sponsored by Robinsons Brewery


Mrs Dowsons Ice Cream



Amanda and Eric Dowson set up Mrs Dowsons Ice Cream in 2002


Their children, Elliott, Ethan, and Amelia, have all been involved in the business, including the hard task of eating lots of ice cream.


They were looking for a way to diversify following the Foot and Mouth epidemic that devastated so many farming communities. It was Eric and the childrens obsession with ice cream that first got them started.


Eric said We have won other awards but this is a real, honest one judged by local people and this is very important to us. This is the award that matters and to get this from Lancashire Life is absolutely incredible; its difficult to know what to say but we are absolutely over the moon.

Established in 1838, Robinson's Brewery has been a fairly well-kept secret over the last three centuries in Stockport, busy brewing really great ales, some winning international acclaim as in Old Tom, voted the World's Best Ale 2009.


Now undergoing a multi-million pound investment in a new brew house, and visitor/conference centre we are committing to the future. We are investing heavily in our bottle range as well as creating 7 new ales and rebranding our core range. From this we aim to be the leading brewer in the North West.
