The Quantock Belle operates on the scenic West Somerset Railway between Bishops Lydeard (near Taunton) and Minehead, recreating that wonderful, nostalgic atmosphere of the great days of steam. Our diners enjoy good food and excellent company as the train wends its way through the beautiful Quantock Hills, past the ancient port of Watchet and along the coast to Blue Anchor Bay.
Whatever the occasion may be – a special anniversary or birthday celebration, a cosy dinner for two, or a Sunday lunch out – we are sure you will find dining on the Quantock Belle a delightful and memorable experience.
The Quantock Belle operates on a limited number of dates each year and is extremely popular. Advance booking is therefore mandatory. Your fare includes:
Return travel at your reserved dining table;
A three-course meal with tea or coffee served during the journey;
Value Added Tax, as applicable.
A comprehensive bar service, including a varied wine list and soft drinks, is provided to your table by our attentive liveried stewards throughout the day and charged towards the end of your return journey.
A vegetarian option (homemade gluten and dairy-free) is available as an alternative to all advertised menus but must be notified at time of booking.
We arrive at Minehead on conclusion of your main course where there will be an opportunity to take the sea air and have a leg stretch while our steam locomotive is serviced and readied for the return journey. Dessert is served soon after we set off again, followed by a continuous tea and coffee service. On selected Sunday lunchtimes during the Summer months we will offer a longer layover in Minehead (approximately two hours). These dates are denoted by an asterisk (*) in the schedule.
We are confident you will have a wonderful and memorable day out with us and we look forward to seeing you on "the QB" soon.
The Quantock Belle is also available for private charter. Please call the Catering Manager on 01643 704996 if you would like to discuss ideas for group outings or special celebrations.
