Dine in style on board a heritage train at the Severn Valley Railway

On-train dining is back at the Severn Valley Railway, with a bigger-than-ever choice of services and a first-class menu created by the railway’s in-house executive head chef.

Starting on 3rd August, and departing from Kidderminster station on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday lunchtimes, the dining services offer the perfect experience for a celebration with friends, a romantic date or an opportunity for foodies to sample the very best cuisine, whilst travelling in style through stunning Worcestershire and Shropshire countryside. Lucy Kelly, the railway’s executive head chef, said:

“Each dish is full of exciting and complimentary flavours, as well as being a treat for the eyes as it’s served to your table.

“I’m proud to present this handcrafted menu and to be showcasing it in such a unique setting on the railway.”


Diners will be served with a starter and main course as they travel the 16-mile route from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth. There’s a short stopover at the SVR’s northernmost heritage station, with time to explore the gift shop or visit the Railwayman’s Arms. Then it’s back on board the luxuriously appointed 1930s dining carriage for desserts and coffee during the return journey. Michael Dunn, head of commercial and visitor experience, added:

“Our catering team has worked extremely hard to get things just right for the return of our on-train dining experiences.

“We wanted to make sure everything was just right, and that we’re giving our diners the very highest standards of cuisine and service, along with a luxury heritage experience they’ll treasure.”

As well as its lunchtime dining services, the SVR offers on-train afternoon teas that promise a vintage theme with a modern twist. Comprising savoury bites, sandwiches, scones and traditional cakes, afternoon teas are served on board the SVR’s beautifully-appointed teak dining carriage.
