Griddle Car

Griddle Car Services
What better way to start the day than with a hearty Great Central All Day Breakfast, with eggs, bacon, Cumberland sausages, black pudding, fried bread, sauté potatoes and tomatoes, all served aboard a steam train? For breakfast connoisseurs, our griddle car service provides this veritable feast all day long.

We also serve other hearty hot meals - all without the need for an advance reservation. 

You’ll find these favourites aboard our griddle car, along with a bar serving beers, wines, spirits and hot drinks on most trains. Children’s meals are also available.

The Griddle car is available on selected trains, as per the timetable. Look for the trains with a 'fork & circle' symbol.
