Fish & Chips Special GWSR

Fish & Chips Special GWSR

Fish & Chips Special GWSR

Throughout 2019 the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway’s famous  Special Train, “The Cheltenham Fryer” will be offering a leisurely Fish & Chip Speical GWSR on Friday or Saturday evening through the Cotswold countryside.

Steam specials include a large fish and chip meal served in the modern equivalent of the traditional chip shop newspaper – a heat retentive box. Your meal will be delivered to your reserved seats by our train stewards who will also be pleased to serve you refreshments from the Buffet Car including ales and house wines as well as hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks. All Fish and Chip Specials start at Toddington station and travel southwards to Cheltenham Race Course before returning to Toddington. They do not call at Broadway station.
