An unexpected treat at Carriages

Kenny B,
Having a quick stroll around Bellingham we came upon Carriages. As a rail enthusiast I had to have a look around this converted railway carriage. Outside there was a lovely garden area filled with birds feeding at the strategically placed feeding station. The inside of Carriages is a railway carriage, nothing more. The food? Simple, wonderfully presented and above all tasty. The service was relaxed, friendly and fitted the ambience of the carriage. It is accessible to wheelchair users as I saw one of the staff help a user into the carriage and to their seat. This was done with sensitivity. Well done sir. I wish we could've stayed longer and unfortunately not living near Bellingham, gone back regularly. Recommended

Nice conversion

If you like quirky conversions and buildings then this is for you. Big car park. Food is typical cafe food but good.

Mondays best

They serve hot roast beef on baguettes on a Monday. Only went in as we were taking the glass to the recycle unit and it's on site. It's a really lovely baguette.

Proper food in a quirky setting

Set in a couple of old railway carriages in the former railway station in Bellingham, this is a real find! Proper home made cakes, good bread and lovely staff- perfect!
