Turned up during the snow this march and despite the " beast from the east " the pub was open and very welcoming. We ate in the First class Pullman carriage with wonderful armchairs and wood panelling etc. Good pub food & great service

We were in the area and decided to eat here. We sat in one of the dining carriages, the menu is standard pub food. The food was good and piping hot. Polite and welcoming waitresses. Good value for money.
