The Matthews family opened the doors to Brain Freeze in Jesu Street on Monday.

Sweet-toothed customers have celebrated the opening of Ottery’s first milkshake bar.

Tasha and Allister Matthews were joined by their five children Lewis, Josh, Ewan, Rhianna and Freya for the launch of Brain Freeze, which opened last Monday.

They say customers are giving them ‘the thumbs up’ and have plans to open later on a Friday to offer youngsters a place to hang out.

Tasha, of Winters Lane, said: “We are hoping on a Friday to open a bit later into the night for the kids. Being a mum of five, you see there’s very limited things to do on a Friday evening.

The Jesu Street business drew large crowds with Millions, Skittles and Oreo milkshakes proving the most popular selections in the first few days.

Tasha added: “With five children, they give a bit of input to what they like and we make it. It seems to be getting the thumbs up from people.

“It’s been busy, not too manic but nice and steady with some large groups.”
