Celebrate British Food Fortnight at Tebay Services Hotel

It’s British Food Fortnight celebrating everything that is amazing about British food and there’s a lot to celebrate.

And it couldn’t be celebrated at a better time of the year either as Britain knows a thing or two about autumnal fair.

Autumn Lamb and especially Cumbrian autumn lamb (well this is a Cumbria based blog after all!) has been maturing and growing in flavour yet still has the tenderness of spring lamb.
Vegetables, the UK is root veg heaven growing tonnes each year from carrots to turnips, parsnips, beetroot and celeriac. Above ground we then can do pumpkins at this time of the year really well, leeks and iron packed savoy cabbage. Winter vegetable stews and soups and roast accompaniments are beyond plentiful.

Above all, the hotels and restaurants in Cumbria and the Lake District know how to do these seasonal offerings justice and no more so than when it comes to Cumbria’s finest product, lamb. Lamb producers, stockists and restaurateurs the Westmorland Family support British Food each and every day but there’s even more reason to shout from the rooftops about the British produce during British Food Fortnight.

Book an autumn break at the Tebay Services Hotel near Penrith and sample some of their own reared lamb from the family farm down the road in Orton, relax and unwind with some Cumbrian ale before finishing off the evening with a Cumbrian liquor such as Kin Toffee Vodka. Rooms start from just £108 based on 2 sharing including a full Cumbrian breakfast (when booking 7 days or more in advance).
