Throughout 2019 the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's famous Fish and Chip Special Train, 'The Cheltenham Fryer' will be offering a leisurely Saturday evening ride through the Cotswold countryside.

These steam specials include a large fish and chip meal, served in the modern equivalent of the traditional chip shop newspaper - a heat retentive box! Your meal will be delivered to your reserved seats by our train stewards who will also be pleased to serve you refreshments from the Buffet Car including ales and house wines, as well as hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks.

All Fish and Chip Specials start at Toddington station and travel southwards to Cheltenham Race Course before returning to Toddington and do not call at Broadway station. These trips sell out very quickly - check for availability of seats by clicking on 'Book tickets now' below.

The price including train travel in your reserved seat and a large portion of fish and chips is £24 for all the above dates. Please note that there are no children's prices and we don't recommend young children are invited. There is a £1 postage charge per complete booking. Book now by clicking on the big button below.

Seats on all fish and chip trains must be booked in advance. The last date for booking is the Wednesday before the train departs. However, please be aware that the trains are often full several weeks before departure. Please note that there are no concessionary rates for these trains.
