Lovely surprise

Sheila L, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
After a walk up to Hareshaw Linn we fancied some coffee and cake but I wanted to avoid the rude woman at the pub, so followed the signs out of the village to the Carriages. Lovely! Home cooked everything in a quirky setting. I'll definitely return and have recommended it to people already.

Lovely food

The food is delicious. I’ve visited a few times with my relatives who live locally and we particularly enjoy the soup and cheesecake. It’s my favourite place for food in Bellingham.

Something Different

A tearoom in a genuine train carriage, complete with a working toilet! There is a large choice of food and the staff are pleasant and friendly and service quick. It is table service unless you want to go and have a look at the cakes. The cream/creme egg cake was very nice. I would happily go back again.

The places you find by accident.

On our way to the waterfall in Billingham, we (I) missed the turning and carried on to find a place to turn round. And that's how we found Carriages. And it turned out to be a great find too. Before our walk we decided to indulge in what turned out to be a very nice coffee and cake. The people who run this tea room in a former railway carriage are very friendly. However, if you intend to visit later in the afternoons over the weekend you may want to book as all the tables had been reserved from about 2pm onwards and you wouldn't want to miss out.

That bit different!

Took a walk to Carriages Tea Room mid afternoon. My wife elected the sultana scone with jam and I thought that I would try the ginger loaf, with ginger ice cream and ginger wine(non-alcoholic), to pour over the loaf.......superb!. I had the mocha, a bit weak but ok! The concept is brilliant and it really works as the carriages were pretty well full....lots of food choices too! And very friendly staff....I assume volunteers!
