Turntable Café at Ravenglass Station

Overlooking the turntable at our Ravenglass station, the Turntable Café is an excellent space to enjoy delicious refreshments; before, during or after your trip on the train.

Our friendly café team welcome you with a smile, serving freshly made food, using ingredients from some of the finest local suppliers.

About Our Café

The Turntable Café has been a staple of visitor's experience at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway for years, fuelling families, enthusiasts and of course our staff for days spent on our wonderful little railway. 

The café is open to the public, including those who aren't travelling on the train, daily when the railway is operational. You can find the dates of the railway's season here.

Dogs are welcome downstairs in the café, with further seating available upstairs.
