Food & Drink


Wine and Dine in the Age of Steam. Be content in the knowledge that the original values of quality and service are still in existence.  From the moment we welcome you aboard, you will receive the utmost care and attention, making you very reluctant to leave the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful carriages of the Palatine.

Allow our attentive waiter/waitresses to serve you up mouth-watering dishes all prepared on board by our qualified chef, whilst the train takes the strain and the scenic Derbyshire countryside slips gently by.

The Palatine offers Sunday Lunches, Cream or Afternoon Teas and can provide a unique venue for private parties and wedding receptions.

Our two restaurant coaches with fully licensed bar can seat up to a maximum of 79 people at any one time. We regret that access is not available to the Palatine Restaurant for wheelchair users.

If you would like to book which is essential, or you are unsure as to the service we can offer; please do not hesitate to contact us on 01629 580381.


The Northwood Buffet situated on the platform at Rowsley South Station offers visitors teas, coffees, cold-drinks, hot and cold food, home-made cakes, freshly made sandwiches, mouth watering bacon rolls and delicious daily specials.
