HOSPITALITY

ON BOARD HOSPITALITY

We pride ourselves on our on-board hospitality. When purchasing an excursion, you can choose from Premier Dining for a seat Silver Service. If you choose a First Class or Standard seat, you can visit our Buffet Car where we offer a range of refreshments. First Class ticket holders will receive two vouchers per person on some of our trains.

We can accommodate most special dietary requirements if advised at time of booking or no later than two weeks before the date of running. However, please note that food is prepared in a limited space, so we are unable to guarantee there will be no cross-contamination. Please contact the Booking Office prior to booking if you do have any special dietary requirements so that we can send you a form to complete.

PREMIER DINING

Travel in our comfortable heritage carriages, seated at a table covered with a crisp white tablecloth and decorated with a posy of flowers to enjoy our highest level of hospitality silver served at your seat. The day starts with the Great British Breakfast, followed by Elevenses or a Light Lunch with servings of tea and coffee. On the return journey, savour a delicious 4-course fixed menu dinner, with ¼ bottle of wine per person and tea or coffee all included in the price of your ticket. A range of other drinks are available at additional cost.
