Nice place, good food

As a railway lover I found his train-carriage-restored cafe a lovely eating place. Serves yummy sandwich. Nice walk at the charming Glenfinnan Train Station after lunch, which is right next to the cafe.

On visiting Glenfinnan Station to see steam trains, we decided to have lunch in the dining car. This was a step back in time with many memories. The carriage is comfy and very different. The staff and service was very good. The menu was basic, we had homemade soup and sandwiches which tasted delicious. This was a wonderful dining experience,... More

We stopped in for coffee and came back for lunch (soup and toastie) after walking over to the railway viaduct in the rain. The food was first rate and well priced and we got talking to fellow 'travellers' on the train carriage. Thoroughly recommend this was a short or longer stay.

We had stopped off to see the two steam trains crossing at about three in the afternoon, which I believe is the only place in UK where two steam trains cross on the main line on a regular basis. Adjacent to the station is a small restaurant based in a mark one railway carriage painted in the old cream and... More

After reading other reviews I think we may have got our server on a bad day as she seemed rather harassed by the fact there were customers requiring her attention despite the fact the dining car was only half full (we had carefully times our visit to avoid the influx of steam train visitors) The rather abrupt service spoilt what...

Stopped off for coffee and cake on a dreary afternoon. Good coffee, fab fresh home baking and amazing hot chocolates for the kids. Brilliant setting and lovely staff. Just the right amount of chat :)

We were looking for something nice to eat on our journey home. This place had been recommended to us. The inside of the carriage looked nice and had lots of space but we chose to sit outside. We were traveling in the summer with two dogs and sitting on the terrace outside our dogs were welcome. Also if I do... More
