Fun Experience

Stronty, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
My wife and I were staying in Bellingham for the weekend and came here for brunch on Sunday before we headed home. Great idea having a cafe/restaurant in 3 old converted train carriages and it's amazing the food they produced from a small kitchen. We had bacon baps and coffee as it was too early for lunch proper. Never seen so much bacon in a roll before and the coffee was good. They were doing roast beef Sunday lunch and appeared to be fully booked so must be a popular place. Staff very friendly (and efficient) and prices good so no wonder they're doing well.

A quirky location, with excellent food and service

We've been here several times now and every time the service is excellent. The food is always fresh, tasty and well presented. The portions are great and the prices are very reasonable. All in all a guaranteed great spot to stop if you're in the area or even just passing through.

Lovely food

Our daughter, son in law and family bought my husband and I a voucher for The Carriages Tea Room for Christmas. After a busy year it was to allow us to spend some time together! The celebratory afternoon tea was a delight. A selection of just freshly made sandwiches, a sausage roll and a piece of quiche (warm), a scone with cream and jam, a brilliant selection of sweet stuff... though we did not think we would manage to eat it all we had starved all day so managed it- we did pace ourselves & had lots of tea and coffee. Attentive service in the old railway coaches and with so many birds to watch on the bird stations outside the window. You have to give 24 hours notice of the wish to have a celebratory tea. £17 each we think! Just what we needed.
