Nutritious salads add texture and are lifted by bold flavour accompaniments like the Kale Caesar - Spanish anchovies, quail's egg, marinated kale, parmesan dressing with marinated chicken, ham hock, salt beef or king prawns.
Chargrilled Octopus, with potato, olives, shemigi mushroom salad, makes the most of the restaurant’s flame grill. At Rail House Cafe even comfort food goes above and beyond too – like the Truffled Mac & Cheese made using aged Comte.
Substantial dinner highlights include, a 24 Hour Slow-cooked Lamb Shoulder with 5-spice, aubergine miso, black curry, and Wild Bass & Truffle with lemon mousseline, confit fennel, saffron.

The wine list offers classics as well as a selection of natural and orange wine. The curated list of draft beer and bottles from small independent producers is notable, focusing on local and far flung specialist brewers. A current favourite includes ‘Magic Rock: Salty Kiss from Gose in Yorkshire’.
