Booked in at short notice as looking for a meeting point between Leek and Buxton. So we decided to give this place a go after recent reviews. The reviews have been spot on. The place is a quirky and impressive. But there is more to this place and the food was enjoyed by all 4 of us. We all had... More

Went for a meal, food was great, wasn't overpriced. Very relaxed atmosphere sat in a train carriage. Service was very quick and both girls waiting on were really pleasant. Especially Lizi who was amazing. Was that impressed with the experience, enquired about having my daughters birthday their.

This was our first visit for a Valentines treat, Ellie & her team were superb & compliments to the chef indeed. Wonderful setting of a mock railway station & carriages definitely give the wow factor on first impressions. The three course meal was cooked to perfection & well priced for the type of meals served, it probably would be classed... More

Being fairly local, we have been here many times over the last 30 years and always enjoyed the "old" Italian theme. However last night we met Ellie and her team, being the new owners and the "Italian" theme was now gone. The railway carriage effect was still there and gave a great ambiance, with just a feel of the Orient... More

We were here for Valentines dinner (my husband booked it as a surprise) the train station setting is superb - quirky and unusual, the food was spot on - beautifully prepared and adequately sized portions. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food, all locally sourced. £19.50 for a 2 course meal? If you want to pay Wetherspoons prices then... More

Thankyou for your kind review! I'm pleased you enjoyed your meal & I agree with your comment on the Wetherspoons prices. The food is a different standard, so prices have to be different too (although wouldn't it be nice if they didn't have to be!) We hope to see you again soon! Ellie More

The setting very nice and great attention to detail in the two train carraiges which were made from scratch, they are not real carriages. The food is well presented and taste good, however some of the mains dishes were small in portions and certainly not worth the £12-£14plus if you paid full price. My friend had Beef & 3 Bean...

Thankyou for your review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your meal! We get alot of comments on the ribs - although never any to say there aren't enough chips. Regarding the size of the chilli - I've now asked 5 customers about the size and whilst 4 were happy with it, 1 did think it could be abit bigger so... More

Visited on what turned out to be their first night after reopening, as we were staying in the area and looking for somewhere to eat. The menu wasn't quite what we were expecting as we'd been told it was an Italian restaurant, but the food was good. The layout inside is interesting and fairly unique.

Loved this place!!! I really liked the fact we was sitting in a cosy carriage. We went all out and had the full three courses. The food was lovely especially my crab linguine!! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his rack of ribs!! We will definitely be returning soon.
