This tea room is housed in two railway carriages next to the Bellingham Heritage Centre. The staff are wonderfully attentive and the home made food is excellent. Prices are really low but the quality is high. We visited twice during our short stay. Once we had soup and a bread roll. On the other occasion we had freshly made scones and coffee. We couldn't fault anything. The tea room deserves to do well because they offer high quality, home made food and excellent service.
We love this place!!

We have been here a few times now and its really well worth a visit. The food and drinks are great and to sit and eat on an old train is super. There is a toilet at the top end of the carriages and also an information area about the old trains etc,very interesting. There is free parking by the train. The staff are really friendly. We'll be going back many of times. Highly recommended!!

Nothing better than Sunday lunch here, Roast beef, enormous yorkshire pud, roast potatoes and at least four other veg. Follow that with home made meringues and coffee and you'll not want to move for the rest of the day. Best of all everything is homemade and the staff are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble.

I was on an outing with our charity, and our first stop was Bellingham and to have some lunch at the Carriage. We firstly had a little look round the Museum and little shop, which is as I say small Museum but very interesting. We then went onto have our lunch, there is two old railway trains. We had sandwiches cut into quarters, Tuna Mayonnaise, Cheese Egg Mayonnaise and a Home cooked Ham salad. Then out came a slice of Victoria Sponge and half a scone with homemade jam and fresh cream on top. It was very nice and filling, also lovely china cups and loads of tea, the lady just kept refilling our cups. Would definately go back and it was not badly priced for where it was, they do Sunday dinners so I would probably book as it is not too big and should imagine it will be very busy.

The Tea Room is situated in 2 former Mk 1 carriages which also ran as a TC unit on the Southern Region, sited by the former Bellingham Station and platform of the Border Railways. The food and service is wonderful and the atmosphere is from a bygone era, making a visit a well worth experience. Cream teas are a great experience, but you should book in advance, as you should for Sunday lunch. An all round great experience and very good value.
