Tea room at Tan y Bwlch Station is open from 10:00 – 16:00 seven days a week, with hot food available between 10.:30 and 14:30.

However, these times will be extended on days when the ‘Woodland Wanderer’ or ‘The Victorian’ trains are running to Tan-y-Bwlch. We will stay open until 16:30, with hot food available until 15:30, so we can more easily serve passengers arriving on those trains.

We have a tempting selection of luxury picnic baskets which may be pre-booked with your tickets and collected on arrival at the station.

These are currently available for those travelling on the following services:

From Porthmadog: The Harbourmaster

‘Take away’/’carry on’ items are available from all our catering outlets and there is a range of snacks and drinks at Blaenau Ffestiniog, and a small kiosk at Beddgelert.  

In addition, many of our trains have a selection of both soft and alcoholic drinks and a range of snacks including sandwiches, bara brith and welsh cakes, crisps and chocolate available to purchase on board from our stewards who will come through the train to your seat. You will find this service on The Snowdonia Star, The Gelert Explorer, The Harbourmaster and the Mountain Spirit. There is a limited offer of snacks and cold drinks on The Quarryman.
