Oh how the mighty have fallen. I used to look forward to visiting Tebay services. Not any more after today. Over charged (resolved) and no cutlery. Dirty tables and when I did get cutlery I was now eating cold food

We were very glad for this Friday night dinner stop on the way to Northumberland. Excellent range of food, good service in general but tables could have been a bit cleaner. Excellent value for money.

We stopped here on the way home from Blackpool for a late lunch. The food was all in different places which was rather haphazard - it helps if you know what roughly you would like. My mam asked for cutlery and got a rather stroppy...More

Our story began in 1972 when John and Barbara Dunning, local farmers, set up Tebay Services in partnership with local bakers when the new M6 cut through the Tebay Gorge. It was the first and is still the only family run motorway service station on the UK road network - a small 30 seat cafe serving home cooked, locally sourced food. Forty years on and we are still here, still family owned, still farming and still with a fierce passion for, and a pride in, our landscape, our people, our environment and its products.
