Today is Sustainable Gastronomy Day! We do things differently when you dine here. We're committed to minimising the environmental impact of hospitality. We don't have a menu; this helps reduce food waste and we tailor-make our meals to your food likes. We use seasonal, local produce, supporting our artisan neighbours and the rural economy; Cumbria has a wealth of amazing food producers. Our wild flower meadows encourage bees and other pollinators which are vital to food production. All our green waste, including our tea leaves and coffee grounds are composted. Help us do our bit as custodians of this landscape; enjoy sustainable gastronomy by reserving your table for dinner! www.woodlandsatireby.co.uk #sustainablegastronomy #ruraleconomy #cumbriantourism #localproduce #artisanproducers #gastronomy #eatout #supportlocal #supporthospitality #greentourism #cumbrialife Bells Fishmongers @bellsfishmongerscarlisle @cranstons_1914 Cranstons Butcher + Maker @linskeldfieldfarm Carvetii Coffee @carvetiicoffee

"...and our dear Channel Islands are also to be freed today". 🇬🇬🇬🇬🇬🇬 Sir Winston Churchill Today is the 79th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands, known to islanders as the national holiday of Liberation Day. We've rolled out our bunting! Take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices given in the pursuit of peace, the strength of community spirit and the value of family time. You'll find hints of Guernsey in our gastronomy, our drinks and decor (even our mascot Woody is from the Channel Island Bear Co.); it's part of our family heritage. We've now been in Cumbria as long as our aunts, uncles and granny were evacuated from the island.

Livestock are a key part of Lakeland tourism and we're surrounded by working pastures. From Herdy to Beatrix Potter, from cheese to gelato; your visit to Cumbria supports villages and small producers, reduces food miles and keeps heritage breeds alive. Herdy's wool can be found in everything from carpets to coats and his image is everywhere! We hope you'll help us keep these traditions alive by respecting livestock, especially during lambing season. www.woodlandsatireby.co.uk #herdy #beatrixpotter #farmtotable #sustainablegastronomy #springlambs #cumbrialife #visitengland #EnglishTourismWeek24 #supportlocal #supportsmallbusiness #foodmiles #villagelife
