The Settle Carlisle Railway Development Company operates the award-winning refreshment trolley service on the Settle-Carlisle route.
Focusing on locally produced food, we offer a range of cakes and biscuits made by Country Fare in Mallerstang. Country Fare is based at a farm within sight of the line between Kirkby Stephen and Garsdale. Why not try one of their award-winning ginger biscuits, flapjacks or speciality shortbreads? Forget the calories, sit back and enjoy!
Lager and ale produced locally by Eden Brewery (based in Penrith) are available from the trolleys on the trains. The new range features canned Wyvern Blonde and Wyvern Lager.
Unique to the Settle Carlisle Railway, you will also be able to enjoy a locally made ice cream. With a variety of flavours available, why not indulge yourself with a delicious treat?
We serve a wide range of hot and cold drinks including filter coffee, tea, hot chocolate, latte, water, fruit juice and a selection of confectionery, crisps and much more.
We are conscious that hot drinks are served in single-use cups on the trains. Unfortunately, there are no facilities on board for washing cups and mugs. To reduce the number of paper cups used, you can buy a reusable travel mug from the trolley team. When you buy a travel mug, you will receive a voucher for a free tea or coffee. Travel mugs are also available to buy through our online shop.
We also stock a range of Settle-Carlisle Railway merchandise on the trolley including hessian bags for life, playing cards, pens, and DVDs as well as a great guide book to compliment your journey on the line.
