Buffet – Loughborough Central

The buffet at Loughborough Central serves hot and cold meals, light refreshments and is also licensed. The trains arrive and depart just a few feet away, so there is more than a touch of "Brief Encounter" about it! With seats for around thirty people its a great place to grab a bite between trains or a warming cup of tea and a sandwich to take away. It couldn't be easier to find - halfway along the platform at Loughborough Central, with doors from both platforms.

On evenings when our First Class or Pullman dining trains are running, the buffet will be open to sell drinks and refreshments before you board.

Our next running day

Passenger trains have now returned to the GCR, running every Saturday and Sunday, and on selected weekdays.

Pre-booking is required at present, to ensure social distancing onboard trains.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the railway as we progressively return to normal operation, as the national situation improves.
