The Milkbarn

Last weekend I visited The Milk Barn, a relatively new local ice cream parlour. It was well worth heading out on a cold, wet, blustery day.

The first test of any place I go is always the tea. The Milk Barn has a wide selection of different teas, more than enough to suit everyone's tastes. We opted for the standard black tea, and there was plenty of it. One pot for two was enough to give two big cups each.

This is definitely a big plus as far as we are both concerned. *grin*

As well as ice cream, there is a lovely cafe with a decent selection of food. The portions are generous, and the food is well cooked, tasty and value for money. Plus the coleslaw is homemade and delicious.

Then there was the ice cream, the main reason we went in the first place.

I don't think any photo would do justice to the fabulousness of the knickerbocker glory I had. Three scoops of ice cream, sauce of your choosing, fresh fruit and nuts. It was glorious, and the best part is you can pick the three scoops of ice cream from the wide range of made on the premises ice cream. The selection changes regularly, but I sampled the Ferro Roche, tablet, and caramel shortcake flavours and they were all creamy and full of flavour.

The Milk Barn itself is light and airy, and decorated to carry on the theme of straight from the farm next door, from the table numbers to the bathroom mirrrors. 

In short, I have a new favourite place, and I'll be heading back there soon. After all, there are plenty more flavours to try, and we never tried milking the fibre-glass cow.
