Our Food

We strive to bring you the finest and carefully sourced local meats. We believe that great meat starts from birth and are proud to work with Farm & Fell to ensure that we provide the best possible quality to you. By keeping standards high and food miles low, we provide a great product to the customer and in turn keep the local economy moving.

You will find all our beef is sourced from locally reared native cattle sourced from Birks Farm, Sedbergh, including our own "Dalesman Angus", a breed with a distinctive marbling, tenderness and smooth flavour. Each breed has its own distinctive qualities that make them ideal for your dining pleasure. Angus steaks provide a perfect balance of succulence and marble. Brisket from the Shorthorn is renowned for its tenderness and flavourings.

We opt to use free range, local, Large Black and Berkshire Boar crosses for our pork, it has a minimal rich buttery fat and tender juicy meat. These are reared at Birks Farms and strictly fed on a diet of barley and beet. Specially bred and nurtured to our requirements.

We use only Rough Fell Lamb, raised in the Howgills. With its distinctive taste it was an obvious choice. Grass fed and naturally flavoursome and lean. Should you have any questions or queries regarding any of our meat products, please do not hesitate to ask any member of staff for further information.

Our range of specialist bottled Craft Beers & Ales

We’re pleased to announce our new range of Craft Beers & Ales is available in the bar at the Dalesman Country Inn. Our craft beers have been specially sourced from micro-breweries from all over the globe. Our range includes the following:


Pale Lager

Lightest style of beer; match with light dishes – e.g. Salads, fish, chicken, pork. Any big flavours in the dish will risk overwhelming the flavours in the beer, but lagers can serve as a good palate cleanser – the carbonation helps scrub your palate clean, refreshing it ahead of the next dish either as a palate cleanser to start, or between courses.


Amber Lager

The amber colour comes from the use of richer, sweeter specialist malts which often give beer a nice caramel sweetness to off-set the bitterness of hops, which are used for aroma/flavour. That caramel flavour will lend itself particularly well to food that caramelises as it’s grilled, roasted, etc.


Pale Ales & IPAs

These beers are hoppier, fruitier and much bigger on flavour. Their grassy and citrus fruit flavours lend themselves well to punchier flavours on your plate – Thai, Mexican, Cheddar cheese – as well as to a similar range of foods as the Amber Lagers – burgers, sausages, pizzas, steaks.


Wheat Beers

The hefeweizen style is one of Bavaria’s specialties, along with Helles and Dunkel style lagers. Wheat beers in this style carry a wonderful creamy texture, with a rich fruity flavour, and a slightly spicier character. These beers are adept at partnering a wide and diverse range of foods but are particularly good with pork dishes and spicier food (the creamier style of the beer helps to balance the heat).
