Railway Carriage Café

The Railway Carriage has been lovingly restored and opened as a café in 2006. Seating around 22 "passengers" our carriage serves lunches alongside hot & cold beverages & delicious home-made cakes.

The Menu

The lunch menu changes on a daily basis depending on what comes in fresh from the fields that day. From fresh summer salad & tempting tarts to warming winter soup & delicious dhals!

We are always able to cater for customers with special dietary requests including vegan, gluten and dairy intolerant.

Sample Menu

Toasted flatbread pizza with sun-dried tomato pesto, roasted pepper and feta served with a bowl of Trading Post salad leaves

Greek Meze - A platter of dolmades, houmous, falafel, pitta bread, Greek marinated mushrooms, minted feta bulgar wheat salad

Minted Pea Soup with Pesto Croutons

Butternut squash, beetroot and feta cheese tart served with a selection of fresh homemade salads

Grilled goats cheese served on a home made red onion marmalade pitta, with a selection of fresh salads

Coming Soon...

We will be expanding our delicious offering soon with the addition of breakfasts and are also planning to start opening for special evening events in the near future!

We also prepare fresh takeaway meals, soups & sandwiches that are sold from the farm shop .

History

Our Railway Carriage was built between 1887-90 at The Stratford Locomotive and Carriage Works. Around 3,000 were originally built for use on the Great Eastern Lines out of London Liverpool Street Station, but in latter years many were sold off and are now used as house extensions, holiday chalets & of course our café!
