Please be aware that our First Class complimentary catering will be reduced to a bank holiday/weekend offer on Good Friday and Easter Monday. 

Please note that the catering service in First class will vary depending on the type of train you are travelling on. Many of our services between Cardiff and Birmingham and between Birmingham and Nottingham offer tea, coffee, water and biscuits rather than the full First Class menu.

Fancy a delicious hot meal instead?

On many of our longer distance train services we are able to provide a hot meal delivered to your seat when you order at least 72 hours before you travel.  Details of the food and drink available plus information about which routes this service is available on can be found on our pre-order page.
