Quality Food

Mike B,
Called in for food whilst also visiting the adjacent Heritage Centre. Friendly staff and a good selection of snacks and meals. We went for the Corned Beef Hash, which proved to be the best we have ever tasted! Superb. Prices very reasonable as well. Unusual in that Carriages Tea Rooms is just that, in former railway carriages located at the former station that served Bellingham,

Great little cafe

Speigal, Birmingham, United Kingdom
A welcome stop for cyclists based in an old railway carriage with indoor and outside tables. High calorie options of good quality including chocolate cake, panini, various other cakes and lite bites. Some low calorie options. Great coffee and tea. Friendly staff. A loo and safe to leave the bikes. Would be great for families and young kids.

A gem!

Found this quaint place when looking for tourist information - what a lovely place. Walk in and you step back in time to steam train days. Sit at the tables on carriage sets and enjoy the lovely food on offer. You almost feel the carriage should move /sway when you stand up. Highly recommended


Chris r,
Had Sunday beef dinner and it was truly gorgeous....the beef was so tender and all the trimmings were perfect. Kids had ham and cheese toasties....sounds dull but it was finest gammon served with a gorgeous salad. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and the added bonus of the kids "driving the train" really finished off a wonderful experience. Couldn't recommend this place enough

celebratory afternoon tea

SandraHutchinson, Wallsend, United Kingdom
Went today for my partner's birthday surprise. It was an excellent tea with very good service. Plenty food but I thought rather expensive at £18 per head - £36 for tea for 2 ... Maybe just me. There was a very slim slice of quiche, a tiny sausage roll, 4 sandwiches each, 1 small scone (jam & cream) & 4 small cakes. Everything was lovely though. Even at that price I would go again.
