Unique and Quirky

Amazing little find whilst in the area. This is no ordinary tearoom this is a cafe/tearoom made from an old converted train. Food it’s good home cooking with large portions they also offer takeaway. Worth a visit 😁

Train to Nowhere....

Stopped here at the end of our walk. Very glad we did. I had a nice sarnie with tea, (free refill). My Wife had a small wine, (She always does, about the weather, price of fish, etc). We were served by very attentive, pleasant staff in a quant nostalgic setting. A nice end to a nice walk. If in Bellingham give the carriages a try, you won't be dissappointed.

Delightful and quirky cafe

Many people recommend this cafe and it is easy to see why. The interior will give you flashbacks to 70s train journeys (in a good way) and the cakes are great. Service was excellent too. There's a pleasant outdoor section for sunny days. Worth a detour.

Tea room with a difference.

We happened on this lovely tea room whilst pottering about on the motorbike and needed a pit stop. I am so glad we did. Being vegan we thought we would probably only be able to grab a coffee but were offered some choice and opted for a bowl of homemade tomato and pepper soup with plenty of bread and a really decent coffee. The service was really good anf let's be honest it's great to sit in a train carriage drinking coffee and pretending you are traveling in the 50's. We will definitely pop in again and wish the young woman who served us all the best with her psychology degree. Due to her lovely nature we are sure she will be awesome!

My sister and I visited today during a stay in nearby Elsdon. What a treat! Brought back childhood memories of school trips and days out with our grandparents. Plus ...,. The afternoon tea four kinds of sandwiches in both brown and white bread. Scone with jam and cream with a strawberry on top, two different slices of cake and a chocolate brownie. Delicious is the only word for it and after seeing everyone else’s choices we need to return soon. A novelty is the toilet, in a small compartment with the toilet next to a carriage door, I had visions of it being opened and exposing me in all my glory. The staff are very friendly helpful and knowledgable, altogether a very pleasant experience.
