Welcome to Dining Experiences

Dining in style...

 Relax and return to a more leisurely era when you dine in style in one of our period restaurant cars as the beautiful Severn Valley countryside slips by your window. There are two steam-hauled dining services on the Severn Valley Railway, each offering menus that change with the seasons.

Our Dining trains operate most weekends throughout the year, and should you wish to make a whole day of it then you can – your travel ticket is valid for other trains on the day!

The safety and well-being of our volunteers, staff and customers is of the utmost importance and to that end we are monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and following all Government guidelines. Therefore, it is with regret to announce that due to the ongoing national emergency, all dining experiences due to operate in 2020 and 2021 has been postponed to 2022. 

We need all the financial support we can get in this challenging period as we rely on footfall to keep us running. As you can imagine, the temporary closure of the Railway is having a devastating effect on our finances and your understanding, patience and co-operation is appreciated and we thank you all in advance for your ongoing support

The Severn Valley Limited

Boarding at Kidderminster, the Severn Valley Limited Service accommodates diners in authentic 1930s Great Western Railway carriages, hauled by one of our historic steam locomotives.

Operating from February to December, the return trip to Bridgnorth offers a leisurely and relaxed dining experience. During the return journey the train stops at Highley only where passengers may alight for The Engine House Visitor Centre and then continue to Kidderminster on a later train.

The Severn Valley Venturer

Travel in the sumptuous comfort of a classic 1960s First Class dining carriage, hauled by a steam locomotive, and hosted by a dedicated team of volunteers.

Meals are served during a single journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth on dates from March to October. Once you have enjoyed your meal, you have the opportunity to travel on our trains for the rest of the day to stop at our stations and visit The Engine House at Highley.

Unique experiences . . .

We also host a number of other Dining Experiences, including Murder Mystery, Afternoon Tea and Gin Tasting Trains, departing from Bridgnorth and Kidderminster. 

Group Bookings: discounts on travel tickets are available for groups of 15 or more fare paying passengers. Bookings from Stag and Hen Parties will not be accepted on any dining service.

Access for those with mobility issues: due to the historic design of our dining car carriages with their narrow doors and gangways, it is NOT possible to accommodate wheelchairs at a table in one of these carriages. It is also important to note that passengers with mobility issues will need to climb up or down a step to get into or out of the train. For those who are able to walk a short distance wheelchairs can be folded and carried in the brake van. In order to avoid problems on the day of the visit we strongly advise those with mobility issues to seek advice from our staff BEFORE booking.
