Spa Valley Railway » Visitor Information » Catering


The Spa Valley Railway offers a number of refreshment options to passengers. These include our static buffet car 'Emily' at Tunbridge Wells, the refreshment bars at Groombridge and Eridge, and of course our award winning Bar Car 'Kate', which we endeavour to run on green timetable trains, plus during many special events.

Dining in the Weald
In addition to our catering outlets, we run a wide variety of dining services throughout the year - more information on these can be found here.

On Train Catering
Our Restaurant Miniature Buffet carriage or Bar Carriage 'Kate' is open on green timetable days serving a range of hot and cold drinks, beers, ciders, wines, spirits, crisps and a variety of other snacks or if you fancy something more such a Gin tasting, Afternoon Tea or Sunday Roast please do click the dining train link here.

The Groombridge Station Refreshment Kiosk has been developed by the FROGS (Friends Of Groombridge Station!). This building was formerly a farm shop selling asparagus near Tunbridge Wells, it has been completely refurbished to meet current standards and sells a full range of light refreshments including hot and cold drinks, crisps, snacks and ice creams! 

We have been busy during 2021 to restore a Southern Railway PMV to go to Eridge as a catering outlet, we hope to open this facilitate later in 2022 to provide drinks, snacks and other refreshements. Until then we are unable to offer catering at Eridge other than special events using external suppliers.
