It's all things sweet with this special afternoon treat as sandwiches are relinquished for an abundance of freshly baked scones, fresh cream cakes and beautifully iced fancies.

This indulgent Confectioner's Afternoon Tea, set within the sumptuous surrounds of our first class dining carriages, is an absolute must for those with a sweet tooth!

Don't take our word for it ...

We are really proud of the first class service we deliver and so are our passengers. From the red carpet entrance to the personal welcome from our Dining Manager, these little touches add to the overall ambience of the evening and keep customers coming back time and time again.
