Dining in a railway Afternoon Tea Car used to be for the rich and famous, but not any more: our Cream Teas on the steam-hauled trains departing from Chinnor station may even remind you of those more genteel days, when the pace of life was relaxed and everything felt rather good with the world.
Our Cream Teas include locally baked scones from the Cornfield Bakery, Roddas’ Clotted Cream, fresh butter and strawberry jam. Everything is served on our GWR Hotels crockery with your choice of tea, coffee, or soft drink.
If you are looking for an indulgent and unique present for family or friends, then why not treat them to a Gift Voucher for use during the 2018 season?
Here you can purchase a combined Afternoon Cream Tea, Travel Ticket & Reservation Voucher, which is valid for 2, 3 or 4 people, and then they can exchange it for a specific train nearer the time.
Vouchers are issued in an attractive presentation card and will be posted to the delivery address you select (cost includes post and packaging p.p.) – please allow 7 working days for delivery.
