Being a lifelong “steamie” and collector of vintage vehicles, whilst on a business trip to India Michael was inspired by a restaurant and bar in a Colonial vintage train station.
Having already created the Bannold display gardens to showcase the stone and aggregate why not build a railway station?!?! He was offered the York stone platform from Oakham station and the journey began.
The vintage carriages were lovingly restored to a first class comfortable surrounding for you to visit and enjoy our seasonal menus. We use locally sourced produce and home-grown fruit & vegetables to make our handmade fancies and finger sandwiches.
