Ideal for those with a sweet tooth!
A quintessentially Brisih affair
Relax in the lap of luxury

There are few things as quintessentially British as a cream tea and now you can enjoy the experience on one of our heritage steam locomotive hauled dining trains!

Indulge yourself with scones, jam and clotted cream, a selection of home-baked cakes and sweet treats and copious amounts of coffee or traditional English tea.

All of our products are freshly prepared by the award-winning Slattery Patissier and Chocolatier. A local, family run business with over 40 years of experience, their impeccable attention to detail adds a delicious seasoning to an already scrumptious offering.

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.
