Station Tearoom – Rothley

A sit down, a cup of tea and a delicious slice of cake? The station team room at Rothley has one of the warmest welcomes on the railway!

Open at weekends while trains are running you'll find delicious homemade cakes and a great selection of hot and cold drinks including hot chocolate and soups, snacks and ice creams - plus the very special ambience which you'll only find at a railway tea room. On cold days there is a roaring coal fire.

There are tables and chairs outside on the platform, so stay a while and watch the trains go past. Rothley is a great place to drop in, even if you are not planning to travel on board the trains.

If the station tea room is closed, or you're looking for a bigger meal, why not try Ellis tea room at Rothley?
