Chinnor Dasher Real Ale Night

On Saturday 27 June the steam hauled Chinnor Dasher will offer comfortable seats and we invite you to join our Real Ale Night. It will be a truly unique adventure as you enjoy a selection of Real Ales as we gently huff and puff our way over the Bucks/Oxon border on our nostalgic steam hauled train. We have kept our prices deliberately modest at just £22 for the Real Ale Night, and it includes three steam hauled trips of the line from Chinnor - or two if you are joining at Princes Risborough.

About the Real Ale Night

In association with both the Chiltern Brewery and the XT Brewery - we invite you to take your seats for your choice of THREE pints of delicious Real Ale cask beers. We also offer additional pints of the above at £3.50 each (subject to supplies not running out!) and and we stock our own Vale Brewery supplied Wychert and Red Kite, plus a selection of wines and soft drinks etc. Pre-ordered Fish & Chips (or Steak Pie / Veggie Burger) can be sent to our train freshly cooked from our local Chinnor Chippie (served around 20.00 - 20.15).

At PRINCES RISBOROUGH station Platform 4 please arrive at 19.15 for 19.30 - after 2 round trips of the line we will arrive back at approximately 22.00.
