Holker Food Hall has a distinctly local flavour, offering a range of produce from the Holker Estate as well as bespoke foods. Estate produce includes cheese made by Martin Gott and the finest seasonal meat including venison, shorthorn beef (an ancient breed still reared in a traditional way) and the famous saltmarsh lamb which grazes on the estuaries of Morecambe Bay and is characterised by its succulence and sweetness of flavour. We have deliveries of fresh bread and stock homemade scones and bakes from Holker's resident baker. The Food Hall is a stockist of a wonderful range of game from Cartmel Valley Game Supplies, also situated on the Holker Estate. You can also choose from an excellent range of beautifully packaged fine food gifts, sweets, wines, local beers and spirits such as Coniston Bluebird, Hawkshead Ale and Damson Gin from the Lyth Valley.
