We are a motorway services business owned by a Cumbrian farming family.
John and Barbara Dunning opened Tebay Services in 1972 after the M6 motorway was built through their farm.
They invited the world to this once-remote stretch of Westmorland to eat a good meal, enjoy a heartfelt welcome and relish the upland landscape.
Their vision is the foundation of everything we do.
We still farm lamb, Herdwick mutton and native-breed beef in the place where it all began. Our Farm surrounds Tebay Services; our livestock can be spotted in the pastures adjoining our buildings.
We have our own butchers, whose traditional skills and commitment to excellence set the standard for every other item we sell.
Our Farmshop brings together thousands of the finest foods, crafts and clothes from our locality, our region and further afield. We champion a wide community of farmers and makers and nurture a team of dedicated colleagues who share our commitment to handmade and authentic produce.
Our Kitchen serves tasty food, made from scratch just as you would make it at home. Our chefs use locally sourced real ingredients, including our home-reared beef and lamb.
When you pass through, you will know that you have arrived somewhere, not anywhere. As you catch a glimpse of our place, which we are so proud to be a part of, we hope you will feel part of it, too.
