We uncovered the best place to have ice cream in Newcastle. It’s in Jesmond, at number 36 Acorn Road. Welcome to Archer’s.
Archer’s ice cream is made with local luxury milk by the pedigree Newmoor herd of Jersey cows. Their ice cream parlour in Jesmond has a rotating list of ice cream flavours, with at least 16 different flavours on offer every day! (For a list of ALL the flavours they offer, click here).
You can get a range of different options – with just a single scoop in a plain waffle cone, to chocolate dip and sugar-stranded cones, tubs for multiple scoops, sundaes and even ice cream cakes available to order for events!
We both opted for 2 scoops in a tub (£3). I chose hazelnut and cookies & cream. MrJ chose coconut and toffee & fudge. The ice cream was thick and creamy, and so moreish! The hazelnut ice cream had such a strong taste of hazelnuts and was absolutely fab! The scoops were generous and as I ate my ice cream, I was already envious of those people waiting in the queue who were going to pick their own ice cream cone. So many flavours to choose from!
We also highly recommend their strawberry and banana flavoured ice creams. They are delicious!
So, with a week’s worth of warm weather approaching, get yourself to Archer’s in Jesmond. Don’t suffer with soft-scoop ice cream from Tesco!
