Bodmin & Wenford Railway has announced the buffet at Bodmin Parkway station is due to reopen on November 19.

The buffet at Bodmin Parkway is under the management of the heritage steam railway. It was originally closed in early 2020 due to COVID-19, and remained closed whilst undergoing a major refurbishment.

The buffet is now trading under the name of the Cornish Rail Coffee Co., bringing it into line with the coffee shop at Bodmin General.

The popular buffet will serve a variety of hot and cold drinks, along with a selection of sandwiches, cakes and snacks.

Passengers due to travel on mainline trains will be able to purchase these before they board the train, whilst local walkers will also be able to take advantage of the buffet.

The buffet has been given a thorough make over, giving it a fresh, new feel. For those people who are unable to access the buffet, there is a button to call for assistance.

Julie Burley, Bodmin & Wenford Railway’s Business Manager said, “We are delighted that we can finally reopen the buffet at Bodmin Parkway. The refurbishment has taken longer than anticipated but we are pleased with the results and we hope that customers will be too.”

The buffet will be open Monday to Saturday, 7:30am to 14:30pm.
