Tommy’s Afternoon Tea

Come and enjoy a full afternoon tea in our period style tea room at East Tanfield Station and watch the trains go by as you partake of home-made scones and cake, perfect sandwiches, and plenty of never-ending supplies of tea (or coffee).

Our tea room offers a friendly and convivial atmosphere complete with gentle music, the chink of delicate crockery, a small play area for our smaller guests and some fine local walks beside the railway for you to walk off all this lovely food. Tommy's Afternoon Tea operates most Sundays during the summer at 2:15pm.

The tea room is easily accessible by the disabled and less fleet-of-foot, being on the same level as and close to the adjacent car park. The platform is immediately outside the building. There is a disabled- accessible lavatory in the building, and a wheelchair is available to borrow (first-come-first-served).

Pre-booking is essential as all food is made to order for each train. The ticket price does not include train travel but can be purchased separately, on the day.

Tickets: Adult £15.00 Senior Citizen £13.00 Child £12.00 Under 5 FREE. If you would like an Under 5 to receive refreshments, a child ticket will need to be purchased.
