I have visited several times when in Skipton as they have the best choice of ice cream flavours and the ice cream helping is generous and good value for money. The weekend person is very friendly and pleasant.

My partner and myself called in last week for an ice cream. When we spotted pistachio flavour we were very excited. We visit Wales on a regular basis and always find time to visit Glaslyn Ices at Beddgelert for their amazing pistachio ice cream. Unfortunately Fat Boys pistachio was a huge let down. We couldnt detect any pistachio flavour at... More

We sampled this lovely creamy ice cream and we were not disappointed, plenty of choice as well. The gentleman who served us was very pleasant and chatty.

My husband spotted fat boys as we driving up the side street next to Bizzy Lizzy's chippy. As we had had a very disappointing ice cream earlier in the day we thought we would try it out. Best idea of the day, the gentleman serving gave me a sample saying I should try first as it was quite strong. It... More

Picture the scene. It is the first really hot day of the summer in Yorkshire. After snow a week ago, mercury is now nudging towards the mid-twenties. You have walked the canal and are in desperate need of an ice-cream. Fat Boys did the trick, the owner/server was friendly and his prices were very reasonable around £2 upwards from memory.... More

Nice little selection of normal and not so normal flavours. Loved the ginger cake, black cherry and Malteser. Mint choc chip quite dentisty. Friendly. A good ice cream.

I have visited this ice cream shop on many occasions during summer and the ice cream is just wicked. Really nice texture & flavour with a good selection of cone sizes. Prices are reasonable. Yes you pay more than the local ice cream van which parks on the high street. However the quality is superior here so well worth it.

Some novel flavours made and served by Hetty. Of the three we tried, we have rarely, if ever, tasted any better. Hetty's enthusiasm for her ice cream and her willingness to tell us about the goodies used for the flavourings made it a very enjoyable experience, both when choosing our ice creams and eating them afterwards.

Called in here for crepes as advertised but unfortunately stopped doing them. Kids decided to have an ice cream and a crunchie shake instead and both said they were delicious. Good selection of ice cream all home made all looked delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

Had a Bubblegum and Nutella Medium Ice Cream and both flavours were really good. The price is bad either for what you get so I was really happy with it today. Great place to buy ice cream I. skipton and the owners are very friendly. I just hope they find the 20p that fell under the counter when it fell... More
