My friend and I were walking through the country side during quite the rainstorm. We saw this ice cream parlor as we were coming into town. We knew immediately we needed to stop for ice cream before anything else. They were super nice (even though we looked like drowned rats) and let us taste a bunch of flavors. We got... More

My husband and I called into the ice cream parlour after visiting Helmsley Castle. I love ice cream and have eaten a lot in my life time but the tub of jaffa cake ice cream I had was exquisite, the best ice cream I've ever had. There were lots of different flavours which I suppose I should try on another... More

Stopped for ice-creams after walking to Rievaulx and back. Totally amazing - loads of flavours and very generous sizes scoops at great prices. Wished we come every week but the 400 miles round trip wouldn't be practical!

Love this quirky place, the children and I go regularly and we have never been disappointed. The blood orange sorbet is to die for! I can honestly say they have the best ice cream and there will always be a flavour you like as there are so many to choose from. Just FABULOUS!

Brilliant customer service and a very friendly atmosphere. Best ice cream ever. Can't believe that someone has put a bad comment on about Ryeburn of Helmsley.

I only wanted three double waffle cone ice creams, each of a single flavour .... coffee, strawberry and fig. The assistant dished up the first cone with one coffee and one strawberry scoop ... hardly single flavour!!! Pointed this out, she clearly had not been listening .. she then became quite huffy. Anyway eventually got what ordered but then couldn't... More

Spoilt for choice is the only problem! There are approximately two dozen. The quality, creaminess, and intense flavours are just some of the positive points about Ryeburn ice cream. From the generous waffle cones to the rich fruity ice cream. You just have to have two scoops so that you can experience two different flavours. Try the liquorice and fruits... More
