My word this has changed a bit since my last visit. Completely revamped and looks a lot more like its ísisterí service station Gloucester. The bit with the booze in is on the left (I think itís roughly the same layout North & Southbound). Both have pretty much the same selection with an emphasis on Cumbrian breweries, as well as a good range of Samuel Smith, Hardknott and Thornbridge. Beavertown, Fourpure and Camden Town also muscle their way in with a few cans. Cider comes in the form of maybe 6 Olivers and some 1.5l bottles of Piltonís excellent keeved cider. Also some of their own-brand beers available. Aside from the beer, there is a mesmerising selection of cheese, pastries, jams and other farm shop items. I perused some scotch eggs next to the Hairy Bikerís Si King, who was perusing cheese. A greatly improved Tebay, definitely better than any of the other services on the road to Scotland. Unless you want fast food. Oh yeah, a nice dog walk here too.

The farmers market section, which is part of the same main building as the regular services area offers something better than the usual inane and synthetic looking (and unjustly inflated prices) rest stops. Itís already a notch above most with its duck pond outside the restaurant window, views of The Lakes foothills and even a campsite just off the slip road into the services area. The ales available in the market area are all local and very extensive, and importantly not overpriced as you might expect from motorway facilities where you have no options but to either buy it or leave it. If youíre only going to make one rest stop on the M6, this is the place to make it.

As Service Stations go this is top notch, good food and a very good range of beers available. They concentrate on just selling local Breweries beers, but the range is extensive. We would certainly stop off at here again, and yes, they serve petrol too.

Very nice farm shop at Tebay Sevices on the M6. Really nice friendly staff, good selection of mainly local beer. Really worth a stop off if youíre going past.

A far cry from the standard UK motorway service station, a much more relaxed atmosphere and genuine locally produced food. The beer selection is excellent, with Cumbrian breweries featured almost exclusively and at keen prices too. If youíre heading through Cumbria on the M6, itís well worth calling in.

Fairly excellent selection of both local micros and stuff from more further afield. Amazing stuff for motorway services, well worth supporting.

If you a rushing through Cumbria and need a place to stop this is certainly the best choice. In addition to the excellent service area featuring local produce (the ice cream is particularly recommended), there is also a "farm shop" with lots of local produce including a range of local beers - and some from further afield.

Service station on the M6 that is one of the best in the UK. Focus is on local produce, with the English breakfasts and cakes being very tasty. Visited for the first time in a couple of years in June 2013, and it was a pleasant surprise to see alcohol for sale. The beer focus is also local with bottles from Hardknott, Coniston, Ulverston, Dent, Hawkshead, Hesketh Newmarket, Nine Standards and Stringers for sale, plus some Scottish ones and the usuals from Sam Smiths. To mark the development of Tebayís sister service station in Gloucester, there were also bottles from that part of the world available, including the excellent Herefordshire ciders and perries from Olivers and Dragon Orchards. Good.
