Steam and Restaurant: Cream Tea

Treat your loved ones to the unforgettable experience of steam train dining!

Relive the nostalgia of heritage steam and enjoy a Classic Cream Tea made from locally-sourced fayre and served on our GWR-monogram crockery. Your experience begins with a warm welcome from our attentive volunteer stewards who will serve you Two Scones, Roddas Clotted Cream, Jams & Butter, plus tea and coffee service.

Board your train at Chinnor, then sit back in your comfortable seat, relax and watch the steam lazily curl past your window as you enjoy your dining experience and the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance. At Princes Risborough see the steam locomotive as she runs round the carriages, whilst those travelling on the mainline can only gaze in envy at your elegant dining experience!

Our journey from Chinnor takes approximately 65 minutes for the return trip, and we will halt-a-while along the way whilst our experienced guide gives a short commentary on the landscape and even a smattering insight into our local history.

There is free car parking and a souvenir shop at Chinnor station.
