Complimentary weekend and bank holiday food

Travelling in First Class at weekends means you'll get complimentary refreshments along with free tea, coffee, water and soft drinks.

From the start of the day until 10:59, we’ll offer you a fresh Danish pastry and a piece of fruit. From 11:00 onwards, we’ll offer a snack box which contains still water (with some squash for an optional top up), crisps, a bag of dried fruit, chocolate and a biscuit.

We try to bring you the best and most delicious snacky bits we can, so the goodies in our snack boxes are subject to change and availability.

On most trains snack boxes will be served at your seat, but on some trains you may have to visit The Shop and show your First Class ticket to pick up your refreshments.

If you're travelling on bank holidays, we'll offer you a warm baguette or fruit salad on our Pendolino trains departing up to 09:59, then our Made for You menu from 10:00 until 12:59 and Light Bites from 13:00. On our Super Voyager trains, you can enjoy a toastie or fruit salad on trains departing up to 10:59, then Light Bites from 11:00.

Don't forget, you can kick back in our lounges before you jump onboard but opening times may vary, so please check before you travel.
