The café is open every day from 10am - 5pm (9:30am opening on days when a train service is operating - calendar of running dates available here).
The café offers a range of baguettes, panini, jacket potatoes, salads and sandwiches, which are all available all day. Homemade cakes and soup are also available.

We cater for various dietary requirements if contacted in advance, although we always have vegetarian and gluten free dishes available.
A selection of hot and cold drinks is available and our blend of coffee beans are freshly ground throughout the day.
Wherever possible we use local produce for the breakfast baps, with gluten free rolls provided by Graham’s bakery, bacon from Cameron’s butchers (who also provide the meat for our Royal Forester Dining Train) and we sell wonderful products from Cinderhill Farm, including boar sausage rolls, pasties (or ‘foggies’ as they are known – vegetarian options available) and gluten free sauces for our jacket potatoes and salads. Our coffee comes from Peter James Specialty Coffees.
The café is an ideal and different venue to hold private functions, and we would be very happy to discuss any requirements for anyone who would like to book the café for any function. To date we have held wedding anniversaries, birthday celebrations and many other functions.
The café would also be ideally suited for children’s birthday parties, which could also incorporate a ride on the train if desired. We can also cater for business breakfast meetings and/or outside catering if required.
