Reviewed 3 May 2018

I would like to say that i have just got back from a wonderful day out with may neighbours and we travelled from Toddington on the steam train to Broadway then to Winchome i had a cup of tea from the buffet car very reasonable priced, at Winchcome we left the train and had a wonderful lunch time snack in the cafe, the food was lovely and so were the staff, the cafe was lovely and clean and very reasonable priced.
We looked at the exhibition which was very interesting. We then got on the railcar to Cheltenham the view from the windows was lovely we saw lots of rabbits phesants and farm animals and beautiful countyside. Yes we had another cup of tea the staff on board oaa the trains we went on were very good at there jobs and friendly its the best place for customer service and friendlyness i have had for a very long time in this country, this is where volunterring comes into its own as everyone was happy in what they were doing . Please ho and vist you won’t regret it.

Centrally located this excellant little pub has a delicious Thai menu as well as an interesting selection of beers. Interesting quiz night on a Tuesday evening. Has a large beer garden for when the weather gets better. What's not to like?

Located just off the High Street, this gem of a pub shows how to stave off the decline of small independent pubs. The beer selection is good, some interesting cask/craft ales. The Thai inspired food is the main reason to visit. The starters are a feast and made me hanker for the Thai street food I've enjoyed in my travels. Good ambience, friendly staff. Well worth a detour.

Having used the railway as my local for the last five years I was sorry to see the sausage menu go, but hell came in for drinks and an impromptu bite to eat last night with friends and wow ! Epic flavours will definitely be eating there again soon. , And order more , definitely high on the yummy scale well done Josh and thanks Hannah for the (as always) lovely friendly service

Boarded the train at Cheltenham race course station, definitely a touch of nostalgia, there were refreshment on the train if required, a slow meander through the countryside with a few stops before having a break in Toddington ready for the return journey back to Cheltenham race course station. The staff were very friendly and informative with local and historic information.
