Named as one of VisitBritain’s Top Unusual and Instagrammable Afternoon Teas, visitors enjoyed their experience as the reviews below show.
“… yesterday’s afternoon tea was a complete success for my 60th birthday. In fact it was just perfect in every way. Everyone enjoyed the experience and they all commented on the quality of the food as first class…”
“…we enjoyed our afternoon tea and train ride. Everything was just perfect, especially the tea…very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food, highly recommended.”

“This hidden gem is only 40 minutes drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The staff are really friendly and looked after us as we boarded a beautiful steam train, we saw heritage diesels too. The sights, smells and sounds really took us back in time. After a browse around the excellent Museum of Scottish Railways and a bite to eat in the Station Buffet we all agreed we would recommend it to everyone and we would definitely be back.”
