Ghoulish Steam & Scream Dining

We thought we would stick our neck on the line and dare you to get all steamed up on our Ghoulish Halloween Bistro dining train on Saturday 26 October 2019.

As the days grow shorter and the nights take on a definite chill... they do say the steam hauled Ghost Train of the old and eerie Chiltern foothills come 'alive' in a very different and spooky way. Some say that there may be demons, ghosts, and goblins invading the train on this special October night.

We cannot predict exactly when there might be good sightings of the several mysterious happenings along the way - but we have heard there may be Hitch-hiking Ghosts, perhaps a Haunted station and maybe Ghastly Ghouls alongside the old steam railway line.

We dare to send a trainload of brave souls out on Saturday 26 October to witness it for themselves.


For just £29 per adult / £19 per (Aged 10 - 16 yrs) it includes several round round trips of the line and a 3-Course Dinner with tea and coffee service, plus we have a bar service of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks - all served at your seats. Parts of the event are not suitable for children (suggested minimum age of 10 years).

Our special Halloween inspired menu:

Witches Spooky Green Eyeballs - Leek & Potato Soup with Crusty Bread
Mummies and Vampire Blood Tart - Tomato and Red Pepper with Vegetarian Cheese Tart (v)
Spooktacular Ghoulish Mashup - Beef Goulash, Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables
Ghosts in the Churchyard - Vegetarian Pie served with Potatoes and Seasonable Vegetables (v)
Spiders Web of Delight - Pumpkin Pie served with cream
Grim Reapers Sticky End - Sticky Toffee Pudding with slime sauce served with cream


Many of the diners on our ghostly Bistro train enter into the spirit by dressing up in ghoulish fashion. There is a suggested minimum age of 10 years and please note this experience contains haunting and frightening, which may not be suitable for those of a wholly nervous disposition...

Don't miss what is sure to be a freakishly and funky fun evening - who wants to be left behind at the station on a night like this?!
