It’s half term school holidays here this week and on Monday Caroline invited me along with her, Trev and Charlie on a trip to Billy Bob’s Ice Cream Parlour. Billy Bob's is a 1950s American themed diner complete with soda fountain.
Set smack dab in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and not far from Bolton Abbey, it’s an unlikely find housed in this Cape Cod type building.
Caroline had come across mention of it on FaceBook and thought it sounded good and worth a visit. She wasn’t wrong.
Inside is nothing but pure 1950s Americana. A blurry iPhone pic above of the espresso bar but it gives you the general idea of the place.
We had arrived in time for lunch. Food was ordered and here Charlie’s waiting patiently for his pancakes…
..and tucking into them with gusto! I’m sure he even said Billy Bob’s pancakes were better than mine and he thinks mine are awesome. All I can say is Billy Bob’s must have been very good! We all enjoyed the food, in fact we almost licked the plates clean! and I just know we’ll go back for another helping one day soon.
Outside there’s a fantastic play area for the kids. Plenty of seating for grown ups and those table and benches combination thingies where Trev and Caroline are stood were on sliders. Looked like fun to me!
Lots of big, sturdy, fun stuff to climb over.
Shame about the weather on Monday but imagine that view on a good day! Easy on the eyes to say the least I can assure you.
So, Caroline, another good find of yours. You’re a regular little bloodhound when it comes to sniffing out new places to visit aren’t you?
