Dining Experiences

Join us on the East Lancashire Railway for a lunch, afternoon or evening of Dining with Distinction, as we transport you back to a time of effortless elegance, style, sophistication and superb first class service on our historic steam engines. It’s some of the best fine dining in Manchester, with food to rival the best restaurants in Lancashire. Perfect if you’ve ever wondered “where is there a premier dining experience near me?”.

Please note, all of our dining experiences depart from Bury Bolton Street Station. You cannot board or alight at other stations.

Experience Dining with Distinction

Discover “Dining with Distinction”, luxury steam train hauled dining experiences through the beautiful Irwell Valley in North West England.

Step on board one of our traditional, Pullman-style carriages – just like those on the Orient Express – and we’ll transport you back to when dining by train was the height of luxury. As you steam through the charming Lancashire countryside soaking up the picturesque panoramas, we’ll treat you to an indulgent meal and an experience you’ll never forget.

From four course gastronomic delights to a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea or one of our truly unique dining experiences, we have a Dining with Distinction experience for every taste, every appetite, and every occasion.
