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.

Excellent, as ever.

I visited the Carriages for afternoon tea for four friends, celebrating the recent birthday of one of the party. The afternoon tea was delightful including a tasty selection of cut sandwiches, scones and cake. As a regular local visitor to the Carriages I can say that the service is always prompt, the staff are welcoming and friendly and the quality of the food is constantly good. I have visited the Carriages for Christmas lunch, morning coffee breaks, lunch, desserts and afternoon tea. Vegetarian options are always available. I feel confident that I can thoroughly recommend the Carriages to others.

A very welcome find - local fresh and delicious

If you are looking for a change from the local offering of burger, lamb shank or corned beef pie and chips, then pay a visit to the Carriage tea rooms. Locally sourced and fresh ingredients, the menu offers delicious breakfasts, lunches and cream teas. We were on a weeks walking holiday, and the Carriage tea rooms were a breath of fresh air. Well done to all the staff!

Great idea

Food was lovely, freshly made and good choice. The carriages just needed cleaning and tidying up. Staff were very friendly

Return visit :)

Another visit to the carriages whilst visiting family nearby, we called in for lunch. Order was taken promptly and our drinks were served very shortly after. Paninis and scones were fantastic as usual. Will be back again!
