Came here this weekend with a large party of friends to celebrate the 30th birthday of BBC Tv's The Box of Delights, which was filmed in Arley and Bewdley and featured steam trains. SVR gave us a group discount and everyone had a fabulous time. There are shops and a lovely cafe (with free wi-fi!) before you board your train... More

I went on a package where it included a murder mystery and a three course meal on the steam train. This is the first time I have done a murder mystery and I thought is was absolutely marvellous. The murder mystery part was done by 'Muder by Appointment' which I guess is a company hired by the railway. The actors... More

This was surprise that my husband organised for me as a special treat. We had tea, cake and scones in the observation car as we enjoyed the scenic journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth. As a keen fan of the romance of the steam train, I had a wonderful time, the staff were friendly and the cake delicious. We were well... More

Can only agree with previous poster stevedavvies54, the lovely station bar is less than friendly, populated by clients who ' run the place ' Old age Mafia...' . Plenty of other friendly welcomes in pubs in the Lovely town of Bridgnorth. So sad.

We have been visitors from London to the SVR for many years, organised many trips, and weekends around this fantastic venue, cannot praise the SVR enough. However we have had a very unpleasant experiencecs not once but twice with the pub regulars, having been verbally attacked and accosted by "SVR" pub regulars, we are not welcome, we take their seats,...

A great day on a old train thinking back to my grandad driving these along time ago , my little girl who was five at the time loved the experience as did both myself and my better half . Price was high but we did expect it and was well worth the money

3 course Sunday lunch served on board a wonderful steam train. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and silver served by the waitresses. The journey was smooth and the views were brilliant along the railway. I would highly recommend this outing and will definitely be visiting again. Many thanks x

Fantastic day on the severn valley railway.Took us back to our childhoods! The train was wonderful and the staff looked so smart. Line passes through beautiful countryside. The engine house is a must see, the guides are really helpful and enthusiastic. Can't wait to visit again, will try for a lunch or dinner trip next time because the train set... More

We had very carefully planned to get to the station in time for the 2:00pm departure. On the way we ran into a major, miles long delay caused by the road-side tree trimming people. They had the road shut down to a single lane with a light that controlled traffic. The results were awful!! We got to the station just... More
