Gloucester Services - Our Story

Description

Our story here in Gloucester has its roots 200 miles north of this place in the rolling uplands of Cumbria. In 1972, Cumbrian farmers John and Barbara Dunning set up Tebay Services in partnership with local bakers when the new M6 cut through the Lune Gorge. It was the first and is still the only family run motorway service station on the UK road network - it’s heart was a small 30 seat café 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. So much so that it has gone on to inspire us to innovate and find new ways of creating business opportunities in the most unlikely of locations - on the side of a motorway.
