The heart of Tebay Services is arguably our farmshops. A first for the British motorway network, like the services the farmshops have grown out of the Dunning family’s passion for local produce. They were officially opened by HRH Prince of Wales in 2004.
Most of the people that stop with us are on long journeys and just passing through this magnificent landscape. We want every one of them to share our love of this place. What makes it so special, is its people - not just the staff that work here but also the network of local producers, farmers, gamekeepers and artisans that supply our farmshops.
We choose to stock products from over 70 local suppliers and as many again from the neighboring counties. Visitors are amazed by our two butchery counters, but for us, that is core to our business: it is our direct link to the family farm and with other small producers that we supply our beef and lamb to. They are struck by the choice of Farmhouse cheese and the abundance of pies, charcuterie and surprisingly large range of scotch eggs. So it is no wonder that our bread is supplied by award winning local artisan bakery More? of Staveley – apart from our services at Gloucester, we’re the only place you can buy freshly baked sourdough on the UK motorway network.
We take the same care when choosing our real ales, clothing, toys, tableware and organic wines because it’s this attention to detail that makes us who we are.
Not content with just a Farmshop in our motorway services, we created a traditional butchery within the Farmshop where our skilled staff are always on hand to offer advice and prepare meat to your liking. We pride ourselves on being an old-fashioned butchery, selling beef and lamb produced on our family farm.
