Aberdeen Angus beef

We have selected traditional Aberdeen Angus with incredible flavour. In comparison with modern breeds, they have less meat on them but less is more right? Especially if it tastes this good!

Beef meat boxes

Alpacas

Our castrated male alpacas form part of the Jacob sheep flock and protect our lambs from predators such as foxes, crows and birds of prey. Our alpacas made it to the local press and national news thanks to solving our foxy issues.

Reviews

I've been visiting Bank Ground for years and their lamb is to die for, the bar is set high bearing in mind I'm a New Zealander married to a Spaniard!

Deborah B., London

Compared to the poor overpriced food we normally experience in the lakes this is a breath of fresh air... meat raised on the farm and every thing we tried was fantastic quality.

The great veggie choice was surprising and the welcome was wonderful. After 10 years of coming to the lakes we have a new favourite. Well done, you have a fabulous place!

Don’t expect flash, expect quality, authenticity and friendly and don’t tell everyone§

Great service, prompt delivery. Beef joint was delicious - a taste of Cumbria - restaurant quality meat from a family run business
