Regional suppliers

Our regional suppliers play a key part in our business; as we are a family-owned business, we feel it’s important to support other independent businesses that are perhaps just starting out. It's important to boost the local economy while reducing food miles at the same time.

These suppliers have all been chosen carefully for their quality products which are full of passion and creativity!

We source coffee from Bruce & Luke's in Carlisle, jams and chutneys from Claire's Handmade in Wigton, soups from Redemption Foods based in Co Durham, to name just a few. There's more info below on some of our other regional suppliers.

Lakes Ice Cream

Based in Kendal, Lakes Ice Cream have been creating luxury ice cream for over 25 years. The luxury range is based on a perfect balance of fresh creamy whole milk, real jersey or double cream, rich butter and the finest quality fruits. While, the natural flavours used in the classic range offer a traditional, everyday alternative, without compromising on quality. Like the ice creams, the sorbets are made with all natural ingredients and packed with refreshing, fruity flavours. Click here to view our full list of Lakes Ice Cream.
