Pullman Dining

Our Pullman Dining car is one of Britain’s best kept secrets. With exceptional food and service, enjoy the romance of a bygone era.

Our menus

Whether you’re travelling on business, visiting family and friends, or getting away for a short break, we have an excellent range of traditional West Country food all year round.


Start your day with smoked Welsh back bacon, or perhaps you’d prefer natural yoghurt with Dorset granola. Our breakfast menu has a wide range for you to choose from.

Lunch and dinner

With our main menu you can enjoy slow braised Somerset pork belly, reared fillet steak and many more options, all with carefully selected wines and a choice of dessert or West Country cheeses to finish.
