We are pleased to serve our very own “Fairburn Ale” locally brewed by Ulverston Brewing Company. As a bottled beer this is a great accompaniment to your meal.

We are a family run business who enjoy and take pride in sourcing excellent home grown produce supplied by local people. Butcher Peter Hutchinson of Greenodd supplies all of our meats – Peter makes our now celebrated Fairburn Ale Cumberland sausages. Doug Sanders supplies our free range eggs, milk and cream, and ice-cream comes from ‘English Lakes Ice-Cream’ in Kendal.
