Good as ever!

We came here two years ago on our previous visit to Bellingham and we were a little wary in case things had changed. Thankfully Carriages was as good as ever - we were only here two days but managed two visits! The first day we had a cheese scone and Victoria sponge, the second day carrot cake and chocolate cake both times with tea, Earl Grey served with lemon. The baking is absolutely first class. One of these visits we'll have room for lunch as well! All the other food we saw being served looked delicious. I cannot believe how they are able to produce food of such quality from a kitchen as small as theirs. Keep up the good work!

A Great Afternoon

Previously visited to check out before bringing a coach party.The party were mainly pensioners from Low Fell who enjoy their days out. They have since said that this was one of the best places that they have visited. Unusual surroundings, real friendly and helpful staff and great food. The party went for a mixture of quiche salad and the soup and sandwich which were greatly enjoyed. Three of the ladies had the afternoon tea and now the party are nagging me to go back so they can all have this option.Prices were reasonable and the service was excellent

Lovely tearoom

We called in while visiting Bellingham as my Mother used to go to school there. The quiche and salad was delicious and the portion generous. The railway carriage is authentic and a nice quirky place to have a meal. Sunday lunches are also available for £8.50. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the choice of food is good. Afternoon tea for two is just £19.00. There's a nice walk, approx 2.5 miles from the tea rooms to Hareshaw Lin waterfall. We'll worth a visit.

Tea and Cake at Carriages

Robyn L,
We visited here on our stay at Kielder Water as knew the two train enthusiasts in the family would enjoy the quirkiness and atmosphere of it. As we had 2 dogs with us we sat on the picnic benches outside, but that didn't spoil it at all, in fact we had a lovely view of the birds feeding in front of us. The staff were friendly and served us at our table and the food and drink was lovely. Good price and decent sized portions, the homemade ginger sponge was gorgeous. We will make sure to visit again if ever in the area.

Friendly and obviously a favoured local meeting place.

The vintage railway carriage location is very authentic, including seats which have been well sat on for years, bit it is warm and cheerful. The scones are excellent.
