The service operates on the scenic West Somerset Railway between Bishops Lydeard (near Taunton) and Minehead, recreating that wonderful, nostalgic atmosphere of the great days of steam.  Our diners enjoy good food and excellent company as the train winds its way through the beautiful Quantock Hills, past the ancient port of Watchet and along the coast to Blue Anchor Bay and through to its conclusion at Dunster. 

Whatever the occasion may be – a special anniversary or birthday celebration, a cosy dinner for two, or a Sunday lunch out – we are sure you will find dining on the Quantock Belle a delightful and memorable experience.

The Quantock Belle operates on a number of dates and is extremely popular.  Advance booking is therefore mandatory.  Your fare includes:

  • Return travel at your reserved dining table;
  • A three-course meal with tea or coffee served during the journey;
  • Value Added Tax, as applicable.

A comprehensive bar service, including a varied wine list and soft drinks, is provided to your table by our attentive liveried stewards throughout the day and charged towards the end of your return journey.

A vegetarian option (homemade gluten and dairy-free) is available as an alternative to all advertised menus but must be notified at time of booking. If you have dietary requirements please let us know on 01643 704996.

We arrive at Dunster on conclusion of your main course, where the locomotive will detach and run round, the service will then leave Dunster at return to Bishops Lydeard. Dessert is served soon after we set off again, followed by a continuous tea and coffee service. 

We are confident you will have a wonderful and memorable day out with us and we look forward to seeing you on "the QB" soon.
