Sadly the railway is now parked in a siding at Rightmove with tickets priced at £650k. The buffet trolley is no longer available. It feels like Dr Beeching has returned to close down some lines.

A pleasant lunch in a very welcoming restaurant, the Owner father went out of his way to assist with the Gluten free menu. A very fresh large place was served and a great chicken dish. A very relaxing environment with good local produce.
