Premier Dining

Premier Class & Dining

We offer Premier Class seats with Dining on most excursions for passengers wanting to enjoy a meal served at their seats whilst travelling on our trains.

Our menus offer traditional English Fayre (unless specifically advertised on certain 'themed' tours).

Usually this is breakfast during the outward journey and dinner on the return.



Special Occasion - Flowers



The Meals

Meals served depend upon the train on which you choose to travel. You should check the individual train details.

Drinks & Beverages

A selection of Soft Drinks, Wine, Champagne and Beers are also offered for dining passengers to purchase from the dining car team to accompany your meal.

As is the common practice in restaurants, we ask that passengers do not bring their own alcohol aboard the train. If you do wish to supply your own alcohol, a corkage fee may apply.


Special Dietary Requirements

Vintage Trains offers a fixed menu. We will endeavour to meet any dietary requirements or preferences you notify us of at time of booking; however health critical allergies, e.g. nut allergies, cannot be guaranteed.

Special requirements must be requested when making your booking.


Dining Seats

Seats must be pre-booked before travelling. Dining will be at tables for two & four in our ex-B.R. mk I Pullman Dining Cars.
