Dateline April 2022 Tea Rooms

Our catering Facilities are undergoing a complete change including the erection of a new building.

At present we are still able to provide hot and cold drinks and snacks including soup, sandwiches, pasties, sausage rolls etc as a takeaway to enjoy on the train, or seated at the various picnic tables situated aound the site..

We do apologise for this, but later this year we will be able to offer a much improved service in our brand new, purpose-built Tea-Rooms.

Tea rooms

The Food Standards Agency have awarded our Tea Rooms a 'Food Hygiene Rating" of 5 - the maximum. To achieve this we need to demonstrate very high standards of food safety management and compliance with all food safety legislation.  Our customers can be assured that all our food is handled and prepared appropriately.

Be a Volunteer In Our Tea Rooms

Are you a whiz with a teapot? Can you butter bread to the corners and slice tomatoes with style? Or maybe you prefer to take food orders, wash up and chat to visitors.  As railway visitor numbers continue to increase, we are always pleased to welcome new volunteers to help run our tea rooms at Woody Bay Station. The Tea Rooms are open seven days a week in high season and we need lots of people to ensure it is successful so it can continue to contribute to the funds required to get this railway to its next objective, Blackmoor, and beyond.

We are a small, friendly and supportive team who would welcome some similar minded people to help us make this the best year ever. So any spare time you might have could help us out, make sure the tea rooms are always staffed and that we can provide a vital service for our passengers, especially over the weekends.

Please call us on 01598 763487 for an informal chat and more information or email [email protected](link sends email) or drop in when we are open.
