I see that a certain motorway service station has won the 2009 British Academy of Gastronomes' Grand Prix.

Those who know anything about motorway food in this country might be surprised. On the other hand, those who have visited the place in question will not be surprised at all, as Tebay Service Station is vastly better than any other such establishment anywhere else on this island.

It also has a totally dangerous shop, being one of only two places I've ever encountered Stinking Bishop.

ETA: Dangerous to my wallet, that is.

Really? That does surprise me - the food there is amazing, to the extent that my mother in law not only expects us to stop there on her way to visit her, but plans her own driving trips south to coincide with a meal at Tebay (she's an hour and a half away, so it's also a good time to call her when about to leave there).
