Daily Food & Drink

In the area and fancy a snack?

Oxenhope Buffet is open everyday when trains are running and Wednesday to Sunday throughout the year, except Christmas Day.

Whatever you are doing in the area, walking, sightseeing or travelling along the Branch when trains are running, you are sure to receive a welcome at the Oxenhope buffet.

The Buffet is open whenever trains are running and additionally, on non-train days, Wednesday to Sunday throughout the year except Christmas Day, Christine Laycock and her dedicated band of volunteers will always welcome you on board the British Railways, Mk.1 buffet car, positioned alongside the platform at our terminus station. There you can buy hot and cold drinks, soups, sandwiches, hot bites  and sweets.

On hot summer’s days sit outside and enjoy the quiet surroundings of Oxenhope Station or on cold and wintry Pennine days, take refuge inside the buffet and have a hot chocolate to drive away the cold and damp.

Whilst the Buffet gives a small but welcome place for a bite to eat, plans are afoot to provide a larger and more comprehensive dining experience when Oxenhope Station is transformed with the building of a new purpose-built catering establishment.
