We are proud to be a food business; we love food and we think food is important - how it's sourced, how it's made and how it looks and tastes. We make our own food for our kitchens and in our Taste Foodhall we form close partnerships with small producers who are doing something unique and brilliant.

Good food is at the very heart of everything we do. We believe good food matters. So we serve it where you'd least expect it, under one of the largest green roofs in the UK. We belong to the Westmorland Family which built the first family run motorway services on the UK roads and over the past 40 years have grown to a business which has over 1,000 people working with us over six sites.

We couldn't do anything without our family of people working together to create long lasting positive memories for our customer. We are proud of our difference and we are constantly striving to do it better. We work with people who really care about food and where it comes from and want to share this experience with our customers.

The Rheged Centre is a unique place to come and visit and we pride ourselves on our Arts, Food and Cinema offer, we are located on the A66 heading west from Penrith. We have won awards for our Gallery and we have the largest cinema screen north of Manchester, where we screen some of the newest release films daily.
