Archer's Ice Cream
Who doesn't love an ice cream on a hot summer's day - or, let's face it, on a cold, wet or windy day too!
Perfectly placed to greet you after a walk around Easby Abbey, or a gruelling stage of the Coast to Coast trek, Archer's Ice Cream, at The Station, Richmond, will delight your taste-buds with its mix of fruity and sweet flavours, made using milk from the family's own herd of cows.
John and Sue Archer, in an effort to diversify, began their ice cream making adventure on their farm near Darlington. It was pretty much an instant hit so in 2008 they added another ice cream parlour and production facility in Richmond
Archer's offer a wide variety of more than 50 flavours and often you can watch them making their award-winning ice cream in their parlour when you visit.
From crème brûlée, amaretto, pistachio and raspberry pavlova to the more traditional rum 'n' raisin, mint choc chip and strawberry, there is something to tempt any ice cream fan.
The parlour also serves up waffles and pancakes, as well as the usual variety of cones and tubs, plus amazing ice cream cakes. Soft drinks, hot chocolate, tea and coffee are available too
The farm, at Walworth Gate, is open to visitors during the summer, where youngsters can enjoy their play park - and savour a scrumptious ice cream of course!
