This Scarborough institution has always seemed to be here and never changes, I went here when I was young and it is a must for our children on every visit.
It's a real taste of the 50s with old fashioned banana splits and knickerbocker glories , jars of cherries, pears and peaches as well as locally made ice cream, the lemon is particularly refreshing on a sunny day( not very often). Kids love the ice cream floats while mum and dad have tea or an" ovaltine for nostalgia.
Just kick back at the counter and for a short time pretend your back in time when everything was less rushed .

Used to love going here as a child - a holiday treat to have knickerboker glory or ice cream or milk shake. It's still the same, how brave is that to still have yellow tables, red chairs and staff in yellow dresses - 50's throw back time - so retro now. We really enjoyed the knickerboker glory & milk shake we shared - to much milk and ice cream for me now and it was a very cold day.
Would love to go back on a warm summer day and have the ice cream from the pumps again.
Just brilliant

Awesome retro feel, plenty of choices, decent price (of the shakes at least, I didn't stay for long) and they make it right in front of you :)

I do agree, more seating would be better, we had to sit at the bar lol

We went here and had a variety of foods including a knickerboker glory and ham and cheese toasty. All lovely. How ever we had to stand and eat for a small time before finding a seat. The staff were okay and kept everything clean.
