The Potato Tram


Ratings and reviews

Location and contact

The Jacket Potato Tram is exactly that! My name is Reuben Davenport and I sell Jacket Potatoes topped with home made toppings from a tram outside Thomas Cook's in Lancaster. I also sell pizza slices in the afternoons, and in winter specialise in a range of hot fillings including vegetarian dishes. The potatoes are cooked freshly at the stall and local ingredients are used wherever possible. Come to us for your lunch to have the full experience of dining at the Jacket Potato Tram.

Staff great and service quick. Food OK nothing to write home about. It is part of the Lancaster institution. Better food to had had on Market days. However if jacket potatoes is what you crave at lunch time go fill your boots.

love this place for a jacket potato on a cold day. I prefer to get mine a little later as then the potatoes are all soft and fluffy in the middle.
