Groups and Parties

From birthdays to group lunches to corporate events, we are happy to cater for larger groups or parties in the café. Buffet lunches, Afternoon tea and cream teas as well as all options on our café menu are available subject to booking. 
Our buffet lunches can also be pre booked, collected from our Wansford station and taken onto the train, if you would like to have lunch on the move, or a picnic at one of our other stations.

Children’s parties are incredibly popular and can be catered for with our children’s boxes which include half a sandwich, yoghurt, crisps, fruit, chocolate bar and a juice box.

Private charters are available for visitors who require something that little bit extra special. Our Swedish Railcar can be chartered for drinks and snack receptions, or, for fully catered charters, we will work with you to create a bespoke menu tailored to suit your culinary needs.

For groups using our Study Centre, lunches or finger buffets can be provided.

Our home-made cakes make a wonderful accompaniment to any of the above catering options.
