Step back in time and visit one of the very few remaining Victorian station buffet bars. Well worth stepping off the train for and missing a couple more. Dating back to 1885, the four-room Buffet Bar has retained the original marble-topped bar, back fittings and a welcoming fire. A dozen years ago it was extended into the first class ladies waiting room with its ornate ceiling, keeping all original features. It’s a veritable museum with photographs of the station in it’s heyday, railway and other memorabilia. Nine handpumps dispense a changing array of ales, most locally sourced. There’s plenty of live music and a simple food menu that may include the legendary black peas for under a quid.
