The Royal Forester Evening Dining Train

Date: 17th Jul -

Returning for 2019 due to popular demand!

Enjoy a nostalgic evening tour behind one of our vintage steam locomotives (or our visiting diesel locomotive on Saturday 14th September) whilst tucking into a delicious pie, supplied freshly cooked by the Ugly Duckling restaurant in Lydney, with a either mashed or new potatoes followed by a choice of desserts. A full onboard bar will be available.

Choose between our standard takeaway style service, or our full silver service (complete with a first class inspection saloon trip with tea/coffee, mints and a digestif after your meal, or a welcome drink before your meal, depending on the time selected).

Owing to the popularity of our silver service option, we've added an extra sitting with the trip on board the saloon taking place before your meal.
