A day at the seaside wouldn't be the same without Fish and chips and/or Ice Cream.
Well, even in October, we had to have an ice cream.
Our visit was blessed with warm sunshine and blue sky! Perfect!
You can purchase ice cream from shops and cafes around the Bay, but we purchased ours from this ice cream van on the beach.
Whenever I have visited here, there has been an ice cream van parked here, though I'm not sure if it's always been the same company.
Favorite Dish: We both opted for double chocolate cornets, which were creamy with a nice chocolate flavour. I think they were £1.50 each (October 2012) for 2 scoops.
The blurb on the van stated that this was "Traditional dairy Ice cream made from the cow not the packet"
The ice cream is made on Beacon Farm from double cream and milk.
Beacon Farm is located in Sneaton, where as well as an Ice cream parlour, there is a tearoom, camp site and holiday cottages. See web site below for more info.
The fish and chip shop in Robin Hood's Bay is one of the best in Britain. You cant miss it - its at the bottom of the main street down to the bay. There are benches outside to sit and eat straight out of the carton - gorgeous!
Favorite Dish: Haddock and chips - fresh fish in crunchy batter and great spuds
I never tried the food but it is a nice enough pub for a drink - especially if you manage to get a table outside and can study the harbour life or the incoming tide which is really fascinating here.
