A MALTON ice cream parlour has topped off its year by scooping the title of Best Dessert Parlour in England in the Food Awards 2018.

The Groovy Moo, which opened in Malton’s Talbot Yard Food Court on Yorkersgate back in 2015, serves a range of ice creams and chilled desserts from a Christmas pudding gelato to a summery Lemon and Mint Mojito sorbet.

Michelle, co-owner, said: “It was a complete surprise to us to find out that we had been nominated by our customers. But it was even more amazing when we heard the news that we had won.

“We never expected it as there were some big competitors in the running.

“We are proud to be able to bring delicious artisan gelato and this national award to Malton, Yorkshire’s Food Capital.”
