A 1950’s American-style ice cream parlour in the heart of Yorkshire? Well, I never! An awe-inspiring place full of nostalgic decorations, Billy Bob’s Parlour in Yorkshire serves food and drink that looks like something straight out of Grease and is a must-visit in the Yorkshire Dales region – especially if you’re travelling with children.
Billy Bob’s Parlour in Skipton has combined a 1950’s American ice cream parlour and diner with a fun-filled play area – so the kids can enjoy running around in the playground before enjoying a milkshake or ice cream to help cool them down.
Whether you fancy stopping off for ice cream, the full 50’s diner experience, a play in the epic adventure play area, or simply for a coffee – this 50’s diner with views of the Yorkshire Dales has become a traveller’s favourite over the years, and we can see why.
The parlour takes you on a nostalgic journey through all things the 1950’s from an authentic Airstream that serves up expertly drawn espresso drinks.
They also have a restored 1940’s Chicago soda stream and a genuine American school bus that has been refurbed, so you can dine inside of it – alongside decor reminiscent of the classic diners we see on TV every day.
The booth-style seating is perfect for families to enjoy the tasty menu, which is filled with American faves such as homemade burgers, towering sundaes, and pancake and waffles stacks served with ice cream.
There is also a great veggie menu, which boasts everything from fully loaded veggie dogs to yummy veggie burgers.
Outside, kids can let their imaginations run wild with the excellent playground that has wooden trains, planes and automobiles waiting to be clambered over by the little ones, against the backdrop of the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Don’t worry if the weather takes a turn for the worst, either, as there are two undercover play barns, one for kids under seven and the other for kids over seven – making it a great place to visit all year round.
