The mighty sausage is finally getting the recognition it deserves right now thanks to real butchers using real, over 90% content meat. A sausage needs a bit of spice and the Cumberland sausage does this perfectly after all, it now has a Protected Geographical Indication status. Even though the real Cumberland sausage can only be made in Cumbria and under strict and specific standards, it is one of the most popular and revered sausage throughout the UK. The highly recognisable coil, taste and thickness sets this sausage apart from the rest.
So it has been fantastic to see the mighty Cumberland in the top 25 breakfasts in the UK as voted by the people of Esquire Magazine. The said Cumberland sausage was devoured on a bap from Tebay Services. Here’s what Esquire said:
“Given that most service stations offer little more than commercial coffee, fruit machines and Burger King, the farm-fresh, locally sourced fare at Tebay is something of a revelation. Many breakfast foods are on offer, but the jewel in their organic crown is the succulent, handmade Cumberland sausage in a bap.”
The sausages sold either in the farm shops or in the cafe are made by the butchery team using local pork. The sausage baps are something they are famous and renowned for and which people can’t believe they can enjoy at a motorway services. Invariably, cars drive out ladened with kilos of it purchased from the farm shops!
In fact, the very same Cumberland sausages can be found next door at the Tebay Services Hotel. The sausages feature on the Lounge bar menu and the breakfast menu. What a joy to wake up to when staying at the Tebay Services Hotel than some fine Cumberland along with the equally as fine dry cured local bacon.
