Three of us wanted breakfast at 7.30am. Each of us wanted different items and drinks. The place was very busy but three breakfasts arrived within 10 minutes, everything as ordered. Good food , excellent value. Unbelievably efficient!

I'm not sure if the Station Buffet has gluten free options as its not my business, I just reviewed the business. If you ring them on 01206 391114 I'm sure they can answer your question. Thanks
