Wine & Cheese Tasting Afternoon

On Sunday 04 September the steam hauled Watlington Flyer will offer comfortable seats for a Wine & Cheese Tasting Afternoon. It will be a unique adventure and you can enjoy the Wine & Cheese tasters as we gently huff and puff our way over the Bucks/Oxon border on our nostalgic steam hauled train.

Deli No 5 Thame

About the Tasting: in partnership with Hannah and Joe from The Deli at No.5 in Thame - we invite you to take your seats for THREE delicious and very different continental wine tastings accompanied by tasters of cheeses:

Alongside the tastings Hannah and Joe will have three English wines (one sparkling) on the menu to buy by the glass or bottle. These will be Daws Hill sparkling rose, Poulton Hill Bacchus white, and Halfpenny Green Penny red, and there will also be truckles of cheese for sale.

It means you can awaken your senses with the tasters and then go on to buy any additional wines by the glass or bottle to share, and all to suit your palette and fit in with the rest of your afternoon. And, of course, you can buy bottles of wine to take home with you too!


The Wine & Cheese Tasting afternoon begins on the 14.00 steam departure from Chinnor and finishes at 16.33 (on arrival back at Chinnor).

Visitors wishing to arrive by rail at Princes Risborough may wish to travel by the 13.05 connecting diesel service to join the 14.00 steam departure (and alight at Princes Risborough at 15.51).
