No sooner has one service station featured on these pages, than we feel compelled to write about another. The new Gloucester Services on the M5 is run by the Westmorland Family group who also run Tebay Services, serving home made food from local producers. Currently the services are only open on the northbound side, but the southbound will be opening next year.
The vegetarian and vegan food is being supplied by The Parsnipship, a great, Cardiff based company, producing unique seasonal food. In-house bakers have also apparently perfected a gluten free Chocolate and Almond cake – check out the recipe on their blog.
We haven’t had the chance to visit yet, but that all sounds like a services should, and the pictures show a lovely, inspiring design, making for a relaxing break. We can’t wait to go, but if you get the chance, let us know what you think!
