Unique Relaxing and Memorable Dining - Alfresco in the Summer
Arriving at the Sidings will bring a smile to your face. A delightful oval drive, an evergreen garden in the middle with ample car parking at the front. Also you see converted Pullman carriage rooms jutting from each side of the main restaurant. Your welcoming patron, Sid is often front of house to greet you. Once inside you can savour the aroma of the meal to come. Additionally enjoy the decor that is reminiscent of an old Yorkshire village train station. Seating is offered in a splendid conservatory or, if it is warm and sunny, in the garden at the rear. So now you are seated and your menus have been offered, lets look at what's on offer food wise.
Menu: European Cuisine, Italian, Greek and English Dishes
All dishes are great value, freshly prepared meals made from fresh local ingredients where possible.
Chefs Specials: These change regularly. Please call us for details. Fresh seasonal ingredients.
Starters: My choice was the Chef's chicken pate served with crusty bread. Also available are delicious classic Italian seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes.
Salads: The house special, Il Treno salad, caught my eye. An enticing mixture of dressed salad, crispy bacon, asparagus and mushrooms. Other British, Italian and Greek classic salads are also available. All are delightful.
Mains: A splendid array of meat, fish, vegetarian dishes, pasta and pizza freshly produced for you. The trout in parsley butter with almonds and white wine is very appealing. The fresh tagliatelle with salmon, peppers, onions and cream is also tasty.

Jane emailed us to say: I have eaten here many times now and never fail to be impressed by the friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere - especially on a Greek night! The prices were reasonable, and they even cooked me something special on request that wasn't on the menu. It is a bit out of town, but well worth the effort. A real must if you like trains, or even if you don't as it is a real quality find, and great fun too.
