“All Day Breakfast you dream about”

Dartmoor Railway Buffet

Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 July 2014

An all day breakfast you dream of eating, at under £6.00 for bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, mushrooms, toast & tea or coffee included, it's well worth going slightly off the beaten track, excuse the pun, to sample their wares. 1st rate food & 1st rate service.

The buffet is certainly not British Rail! The room and tables were clean and the hot food freshly cooked. Excellent for quality, quantity and value. A good range of cakes and ice creams to follow. Volunteers were very friendly and welcoming. A recommended place to eat.

What a fantastic breakfast and for a really good price. Filled me after a night on the hills and left me well placed for the day. What a superb use of an old train station, run by volunteer staff who were very welcoming.

A superb day out led me to this wonderful railway station at Okehampton. Greeted by friendly staff I had a trip on the D.E.M.U to Meldon Viaduct and return then enjoyed lunch in the beautiful cafe at the station. One of the best meals I've had in a long time, not just for quality but also for quantity.

when i decided to visit in December to see how the 'polar express' works, which in the book is famously hauled by a steam locomotive turned out to be hauled by some old diesel engine, and poorly maintained coaches, and quite frankly was overpriced, thank goodness I did not waste my money with a trip on it.

Upon researching, I found that two companies run this railway, the granite line company which runs heritage services (very reasonably priced, knowledgeable staff, and extremely pleasant all round day out) and then the 'rip off merchants' who run the polar express and other tacky things.

It really is a shame, because personally from visiting this railway it has so much potential, but is very under utilised.

All in all mind, a very good day out and superb lunch in the buffet at Okehampton Station. Well done (to that side of the organisation)

Okehampton Buffet on the platform at Okehampton Railway Station - run by The Dartmoor Railway Supporters Association. It was a cold wet day and we spotted a sign for Roast Beef Dinner on a blackboard on the platform. We were travelling home from Cornwall to Wiltshire and had stopped for a cup of tea. At only £6.50 we were tempted to try this, it being Sunday! We were so pleased we did. The service was outstanding, in just a couple of minutes we had a steaming plate of food. A huge helping of roast beef accompanied by roast potatoes, swede, carrots, cauliflower cheese, cabbage and gravy. The beef just melted in your mouth, I haven't tasted such delicious roast beef since my Mum cooked it some 15 years ago! It brought back happy family memories! The vegetables were also delicious and the meal left us warm and happy. All this is the more fantastic because it is all done by volunteers. They obviously enjoy themselves and help the Railway supporters club at the same time. Brilliant!
