Changes to Chiltern's catering service

Following an extensive review, we are sorry to announce that as of 20 May 2017, Chiltern Railways will no longer provide on-train catering services. This affects both the Espresso Bar on our silver trains and the trolley service that operates on certain long-distance services. 

Over time, increasing numbers of customers are choosing to purchase food and drink at the shops and cafes at our stations, this has led to far fewer people purchasing on board and the delivery of the service is no longer sustainable. Therefore, from 20 May 2017, the service will no longer be available and customers should purchase before travelling.  

From 22 May 2017, our Business Zone will also be updated. The Business Zone will continue to offer a private environment with plug points, wider seats and larger tables. Wi-Fi is currently available with a limit of 125 Mb, and this will now be upgraded to provide an unlimited service. In addition, at peak times smoothies and juices will be offered alongside snacks including nuts, seeds or popcorn.

We would be keen to hear your views about the shops and cafes at our stations, so if you have comments or suggestions, please send them to our Customer Relations team.
