We’re proud to have expanded our Evening Eats and other food experiences to make your visit to Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway even more special.  We offer a full programme of events: Fish & Chip Specials, The Curry Express, Afternoon Teas, Cream Teas, Wine & Cheese tasting, Winter Warmers, Ploughman’s Lunches, Murder Mystery evenings, Gin tasting, Faulty Towers (The Dining Experience) and the Breakfast train!

Your ticket for each event also includes the fare for a return journey on Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway.

Online advance booking is absolutley essential for all of the ‘Dales Dining’ events.  Most events will sell out, and in particular the Afternoon Teas, Cream Teas and Fish & Chip Specials usually book up very quickly and so early advance booking is strongly advised!  More information is available by clicking any of the images below.
