The catering was beyond what we had expected.

On 20 June my husband and I took a rail journey from Leeds to Carlisle on The Dalesman to celebrate my Husband's significant birthday. The catering was beyond what we had expected.

It was the most fantastic experience and it is hard to find words to express our appreciation

We are now home following our Dalesman trip on Tuesday and are still in a state of euphoria, it was the most fantastic experience and it is hard to find words to express our appreciation. The meals were delicious and the staff efficient and very pleasant.
