Breakfast, Afternoon Tea or High Tea?

Departing Birmingham Stations for Stratford on Journey A at 10:00, we offer an on-train Breakfast in our Pullman Dining Coaches.

On the 16:13 Afternoon departure on Journey D from Stratford back to Birmingham, we offer a choice of either a traditional Afternoon Cream Tea or a light mid-afternoon meal called High Tea.

The return fare in any direction in Pullman (Premier) Dining is £45 per Adult.

Breakfast is an additional £15 per person; Afternoon or High Tea are an additional £19 per person

Our Pullman dining coaches have seats at both Tables for 2 and Tables for 4. As there are a limited number of Tables for 2, to guarantee a seat at a Table for 2, we charge an additional £7.50 per person (£15 per table).
