My family and I visited in November. We had booked the red rose diner evening and we were all thoroughly impressed. We had a fabulous time. The seats were really comfortable and the table was laid beautifully. All of the four courses were delicious and served piping hot - no easy task on an old steam train! The drinks flowed and the service from all the staff was amazing and something which they should be proud of. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

We went on the steam train Red Rose Dinner last month. Although we booked in July, this was the earliest available date. The carriage was very comfortable and the table was beautifully laid. The meal was delicious and hot. Staff very attentive. It was well worth waiting for and we shall certainly go again.
