Hello I am thinking of getting my dad tickets for his birthday, very mixed reviews of the 3 places the train stops at, is this a good day out & how long do you need at each stop? Also which stop is the best place where you can get lunch, ideally a pub. Thank you.

Best place for food is probably High Rocks Inn, it has its own Station. Would recommend it.

Yes I think there were. I personally didn't use them but parents with small children I did see them taking them off to the loo!
