Fantastic dining experience on board a steam train. Carriages were exquisitely decorated and both drinks staff and those serving the meal were excellent and very friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Great food, the sauce with the Christmas Pudding was ace.

Step on board our traditional Pullman style carriages and be transported back in time to an age where to dine by train, was the height of sophistication. Enjoy first class service and fine dining behind one of our historic steam engines whilst journeying through the charming Lancashire countryside soaking up the picturesque panoramas as you go. With a range of options from a silver service four course gastronomic delight to a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea, there is something for every appetite and occasion. Reservations are required for the Dining with Distinction train services. Ticket price includes rail fare, sparkling reception on board and food.
