A little diamond!
Flossytwitter , Wigton, United Kingdom
Called here for lunch after a drive round Kielder...what a find! Very warm welcome from staff, quiet at the time we called, but busied up quickly. Was soon full, other customers prepared to wait in a linked carriage, hence no pressure on diners. Had the hot beef baguette...wow! Beef was cooked to perfection, with a side of gravy. Service was excellent, ambiance was perfect, simple food exceptionally well presented. Easily tempted to cake...carrot cake moist and delicious. Gentle banter from the waiter was pleasant, he was a good judge of characters that would enjoy the banter. All food cooked on the premises, small kitchen at the far end of carriage one, less than half the size of my kitchen, but I can't produce food like theirs! Some customers obviously returners and some destination diners, no wonder. Cost was very reasonable, wish we lived closer, it would certainly be a regular visit!
What a find!!!
This place is ace! The waitress saw to us straight away. We ordered tea for two and a pot with plenty arrived. We ordered soup and a sandwich each! Wow! It was so tasty and clearly homemade. The ham sandwich was proper off the bone ham, loved it. My husband had a cheese sandwich and he was happy too. A great place and we are going back again before we leave Northumberland.
Superb quiche and salad

Food is excellent, service is friendly, helpful and efficient. The quiche and salad were tasty and generous. Sweets are varied; pavlova with fresh fruits was superb.
Home baked heaven
Geordie_Duo, Newcastle upon Tyne
On our way to Falstone we stopped at Bellingham and came across Carriages mainly due the fact there were disabled parking bays available! What a treat, we had the home baked quiche and salad and although I have always hated potato salad; their version was to die for. We loved it so much, we went back for afternoon tea the next day. Has vegetarian options and freshly made soup every day, highly recommended and has a carriage with the history of the local railway which children will enjoy.
Called in for late morning coffee and scones, cheese for my husband, friut with jam and very generous portion of cream for me! Tasty and fresh and lovely hot drinks, will try a light lunch next time in area as they looked very good. Pleasant friendly staff.
