We are taking you back to the 1920’s and First Class Pullman dining. The carriages are from the days of the Ocean going Liners coming into Southampton and served their time on the Southern Region between Southampton & London in the 1920’s. Fully restored they give an insight into First Class Dining, “Pullman Style!”
As departure time approaches, our own chartered Pullman train will arrive and guests will be invited to join the Pullman Train according to the seating plan – complimentary matching place cards are provided at your seat and liveried Pullman Attendants are on hand to assist.
On board you will find the tables dressed with gleaming cutlery, crockery, glassware and crisp white linen. As the Guard waves the green flag and with a whistle from the locomotive, we take you on a journey to remember! Your meal is silver-served by your experienced team of liveried Pullman Attendants as the train steams its way down the line.
Seated in fully upholstered armchairs, your meal will be cooked & prepared in the kitchen car on the train. Tables for either 2 or 4 people with one table of 3. Each carriage perfectly captures the atmosphere and style for which travel by Pullman Carriages became renowned. Thus the finest traditions of the Pullman Car Company are maintained for your enjoyment and as a reminder of a more elegant age.
Your Pullman Carriage is staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers, who take great pride in recreating levels of service seldom enjoyed in today’s busy world. We have been asked to tell you that should you wish to leave a gratuity, at the end of your meal, the staff will donate this to the restoration of their new purchase, the Pullman Carriage “Aries” which is currently under going extensive restoration having spent many years buried and neglected.
Take your personally reserved seat and savour the moment as the train gently departs on its relaxing journey.
