Our 5 star hygiene rated Crossing Café is located at Alston station right on the platform, providing good quality homemade food. Local produce is the norm and our cake selection baked here by Nikki and her team are a favourite amongst visitors and personnel alike. The menu varies throughout the season to reflect the weather and of course can be eaten in the café, in our picnic areas or on the train. Depending on the time of year we have soups, sandwiches, toasties, bacon or scrambled egg rolls, Burgers, hot meals, fresh baked scones and cakes and more. Cold drinks, tea or freshly ground coffee tops off your meal and have a look at the country cake table or why not have an ice cream while you travel through stunning scenery behind our heritage steam and diesel loco’s.
