The well known local brand, Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream, has opened a new Ice Cream Parlour in Yarm high street – Near the Police station. Paul Connor and Sheila Leyden ( Paul’s Sister ) have invested in bringing Archer’s Exquisite high quality Jersey Ice Cream to Yarm. It has taken almost four months to get the venture up and running with the official opening on Saturday 26th of May. The ultra modern parlour has seating for 50 with a mix of standard tables some window seating and high bar height tables, the serving area and Ice Cream production room are in the middle.

We can manufacture enough Ice Cream to stock the parlour and supply other outlets, such as local restaurants and hotels, whilst maintaining the highest quality. Using only the best Jersey milk, ingredients and flavours, we have a range of over 60 Ice Cream and Sorbet flavours to try.

Archers Jersey Ice Cream has won a number of awards in recent years including the Taste North East 2009 Gold Award and in 2011 won two flavour awards at The National Ice Cream Competition ICA Show.

In a way this is a bit of a return for the Archer family to Yarm – As John Archer’s grandfather was from Yarm but left as a young man for the Great War before emigrating to Kenya – John’s family returned to England in the mid 70s to farm at Walworth Gate near Darlington before setting up the first Archer’s parlour on the farm in 2004. Archer’s is well known throughout the North East and has already established itself for more than its delicious freshly made ice cream – Yarm will also be serving our own-blend Coffees -Speciality Teas – Italian Hot Chocolate – Ice Cream Sodas – Milkshakes and other tempting treats, always with a warm welcome in an atmosphere that would not be out of place in Milan or Naples.

We also make and decorate Ice Cream Cakes for special occasions together with a fantastic range take home tubs and packs which we can fill from our display freezer Once open we will adapt our opening times to demand, with a late night for that mid-week family treat – with special offers such as Waffles and Ice Cream or traditional sundaes like a Knickerbocker Glory on the menu.

The whole team at Archer’s are looking forward to a long, hot summer busy making our exquisite Jersey Ice Cream for you to enjoy!
