Afternoon tea

A gorgeous converted carriage with equally gorgeous sandwich and cakes. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. A perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon. The opportunity to sit in the driver's seat for a photo was appreciated too!

Wonderful as ever!

I really don’t know how they do it - the quality of their food is excellent and looking at their Christmas menu, amazing value for money. We have called here each year when we have been staying nearby and have sampled a fair selection of their cakes. This time was no exception - the lemon drizzle hit the spot! Our only complaint was that when we called for lunch the next day, our choice of tuna sandwich for him, and carrot and lentil soup for me, was so filling it left no room for cake!! I think it’s fortunate for our waistlines that it is only an annual visit!


Dam B,
Old railway carriages. Embark from the platform to find delicious refreshments. Great, friendly service. Quirky well presented interior.

Short break in Northumberland

We were a little early to book into our hotel so decided to see what the Carriages could offer in the way of coffee or tea. What a lovely place. Very friendly staff. Plenty choice of food and the added advantage of outside seating. We will definitely return to sample the food on our next visit

Book in advance

Jim P,
We visited on a Sunday and most of the tables had been reserved but they managed to squeeze us in. Makes a nice experience eating on a vintage although stationary train. The museum in the visitor centre is also worthwhile. 1 star deducted for the mould around the windows.
