The Wensleydale Fryer

All aboard the ‘Wensleydale Fryer’ – our Saturday lunchtime Fish and Chips dining trains from Leeming Bar to Leyburn! Travel behind a heritage diesel locomotive and experience a scenic journey through the Yorkshire Dales whilst enjoying locally supplied fish and chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and unlimited tea or coffee served at your table.

Combining traditional fish and chips with a train journey through spectacular Dales scenery, the Wensleydale Fryer is a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Your experience begins at Leeming Bar station at 1.10pm when one of our staff will show you and your guests to your reserved table(s). You will be seated in an open coach at your own table, set for 1 to 4 people, and if your party is larger, two tables each side of the centre aisle. Our volunteer staff will serve your food and drink as you sit back and relax! A bar service will also be available. On arrival at Leyburn, you will have time for a short comfort break and to stretch your legs before boarding the train for the return journey to Leeming Bar.

Don’t forget to make time for a free guided tour of Leeming Bar’s lovingly-restored 1920’s station building. It offers a fascinating window in to railway history and what life was like in the early 1900s!

The train will depart Leeming Bar at 13:30 and the journey lasts around two hours. In addition to fish and chips (cod), there will also be the option of sausage and chips and gluten free fish and chips.

Unfortunately our vintage coaches do not currently have access for wheelchair users. If you have mobility constraints please let our staff know at the time of booking and they will do their best to allocate a table close to the access door.

The cost is £30 per adult and £15 for children and includes the rail ticket.

Please note that dogs (other than assistance dogs) are not allowed in the dining coach.

Places are very limited so booking is essential.

We look forward to welcoming you on board the Wensleydale Fryer soon!
