“Interesting little place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I like the quirkiness of the railway carriage and the staff were very attentive. Had a nice cup of tea but unfortunately they did have any scones at 14:30 on a Sunday afternoon. They also had a nice courtyard with lots of tables and umbrellas which I'm sure is lovely on a sunny day.

“A bit of old British Rail”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It was great to sit in an old railway carriage but don't get too carried away. The staff were young (nothing wrong with that, its normal) but very untrained and it shows. The food was poor and small portions considering the price. Those of us in the coastal resorts are beginning to see food prices in retaurants and cafes rise to ridiculous levels.
They are making up for short seasons but this cafe opens all the year round. Beware! you need your local trade in the closed season. Improve the quality it isn't difficult.

“Almost Pullman class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Only dropped in for a quick lunch, but quality of food was good and staff were really pleasant. This is, perhaps, one for the railway Old-timers who would like to reminisce the times when these carriages were part of the holiday experience.
