  • This place has got the right mix. Good uncomplicated food at reasonable prices with table service. Excellent coffee and good wine selection. They have retained the heritage atmosphere of the building.  more »
  • I went to see it on the weekend, so i was doing an event, so the station was busy! You can see the train, climb the engine room of the steam locomotive, and it was like agatha christie's Oriental Express. The building is brick and really nice station, so it's worth seeing without having to take a train!
