I loved this little place. We stopped here for lunch following a visit to Glenfinnan Monument. The cafe is a carriage of a train that has been modified at the back to hold a kitchen - it's so so cute. I loved it. There were interesting items and knick knacks hanging up - seats were comfortable and it was clean. The toilet is tiny though so if you have trouble maneouvering around you might struggle. I don't think there's wheelchair access either. We visited on the first day of the season so there were some food items not available but this didn't bother us. I had the tomato and courgette soup, it was served with gluten free bread as I requested. It was SO yummy. I had a peppermint tea along with it, which was also lovely. My husband had a cheese toastie and it had some good sides along with it. The service was quick and friendly. It was terrible weather outside and the carriage was warm and cosy. I loved how unique it was. I can see this place being rammed in the summer months.. and possibly hot and stuffy. Who knows but i'll definitely be back next time we're passing through. The museum is next door and the station is right there too so you can literally get a train to the front door of the cafe. Great wee spot. It is quite pricey but I think you're paying for the uniqeness of the cafe too.
Classic HIghlands friendly welcome here sitting in a lovingly kept 1950's British rail carriage.
Lovely food and cake in nice surroundings with the stunning Glenfinnan viaduct a short and pleasant walk away as well as the Bonnie Prince Charlie Monument and views down Loch Shiel.
It gets frantically busy when the Jacobite train is running between 1040 and 1120, but the rest of the time its the prefect place to break up a great short walk or call in on the way back from the many amazing Highland views.
After 3.5 hours drive to Fort William, spent £63, got the return tickets, hopped on Jacobite train to Glenfinnan. The whole idea is let my daughter meets Santa on Hogwart's train. However my daughter was a bit upset cause santa was quite grumpy. No smiling no greeting. Anyway, it made the journey unforgettable I reckon. Anyhow, I would rather watch the train choo choo by instead of seating in it.
After exploring the Glenfinnan viaduct trail we took a short break in here. It has a beautiful interior and a few choices of meal. We took mushroom soup and did not regrest. It is memorable place with charm. Children should like it. Prices are reasonable. I offer to take seat in the side of panoramic view, because in the other side it is car parking and parked cars little bit ruin the spirit of old train and old station.
Clients of the restaurant gets a free pass to Glenfinnan station museum.
As this dining car is popular but has limited space, it can be hard to get a table.
