  • Probably the best preserved railway tea rooms I have ever visited, great atmosphere, themed as days gone by from the steam era. The local pasties are a real treat, well done to all of the staff.
  • Beautiful place, especially at Christmas. The hospitality is also amazing. Felt just like harry potter.
  • Great have been on this brilliant railway several times now staff are really friendly and chatty
  • Fantastic step back in time, great tea room at Shackerstone station too.
  • Small but very nice. We only had a diesel rail car running when we visited but the kids were allowed to ride up front with the driver. Not much to see at the stops mind, great for walkers.
