The Food Stop at Monyash :: The Lambton LarderPublished on 8th. August 2019
The 500 Route allows for one Food Stop - and we're delighted to be back in that little slice of quintessential English heaven in Monyash.
Our Food Stop is hosted in the most beautiful of lands kindly lent to us by the wonderful Michael and Margaret Mitchell who have been long term Eroica Britannia supporters (you’ll meet Michael on The 500 Ride on Sunday)
The Food Stop is a lush pasture, surrounded by drystone walls and borders similar pastures with grazing ponies and crops. It’s a dream location - just next to The Bull’s Head Pub and when we went to visit a couple of weeks ago - wild flowers had just blossomed on the perimetres and the grass was lush and green.
One main food stop means it has to be everything a food stop should be - and for us that means being able to fuel up on tasty food! This year - we’re dining out on the delights of The Lambton Larder of Bakewell.
The Lambton Larder
Blake and Alice are local food champions and co-owners of The Lambton Larder and have a pure passion for food, The Peak District and great customer service. Their goal is to bring fresh, local and (most of all) delicious food to Bakewell - and luckily for us - Monyash!
At the Monyash Food Stop you'll be able to meet the lovely Blake and Alice - chat local food, eat local food and enjoy a totally tasty bite of our amazing area.
You'll be treated to delights from The Welbeck Bakehouse, Ginger Butchers at New Close Farm - Bakewell, Staffordshire Savoury Scotch Eggs and Liza Bakes - Great Artisan Cakes from Chesterfield.
Blake and Alice have also promised some extra treats from The Larder - so bring some extra spends if you want to indulge over and beyond your lunch!
A point to note - as ever we try our best to cater for everyone's dietary requirements. However if you have specific allergies or food intolerances we advise you to bring food and drink for the ride which you know will fuel and fill you for your Great British Adventure.
Lunch at Monyash will be given in exchange for a ‘food stamp’ in your roadbook.
You'll also be able to sip back on a local beer from our friends at Peak Ales and taste test some delicious Banfi Wines.
We recommend that you call into The Lambton Larder over the weekend! You’ll find them at 3 Rutland Buildings, Rutland Square, Buxton Road, Bakewell DE45 1BZ
