When visiting the South Devon Railway, please come and see us for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.

Our ever popular breakfasts feature free range eggs, honey roast sausages, prime back bacon combined with hash browns, baked beans, tomatoes and toast. Freshly cooked to order, with a pot of tea or coffee, they are real value for money.

For lunch or a snack, our menu is extensive and offers an extensive choice from fresh sandwiches, pasties cooked on the premises or hot food freshly cooked to order. Each day our chefs prepare homemade specials such as braised steak, chicken wrapped in bacon, pork, apple and cider pie, homemade pork and apple meatballs in a sweet tomato sauce, lamb jalfrezi, sausage and mash, and steak and ale pie.

Our Sunday roasts are served with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, cauliflower cheese and fresh vegetables.

Try our homemade cakes and pastries, such as choux buns, cheesecake and our delicious scones. Available with butter and jam or as a full cream tea, our scones are the perfect treat all year round.

The Model and Gift Shop and Refreshment Rooms at Buckfastleigh station are open every Wednesday to Sunday when trains are not running, from 10am to 4pm. A great place to meet, eat and enjoy.

Call us or drop in!


Coach drivers: the Refreshment Rooms are an excellent stopping off point too. We're on the A38 midway between Exeter and Plymouth.
