The Old Station and Carriage, Bristol


The Old Station & Carriage

If, like eHarmony’s Mike, you’re looking for a first date idea that’s a little unconventional, then The Old Station & Carriage could be exactly what you’re after. With dinner served in a carefully restored old Pullman train carriage – it’s not only outside the box, it’s outside the usual restaurant setting too.

“Our first date was fish and chips on a heritage steam train,” says Mike. “When we arrived, we found out they were having a World War II event, and we’d showed up with no uniforms. But we had a great time anyway. I even remember an SS Officer being surprised that this was our first date as we were cuddled up in the carriage seat.”

There’s no need to compromise on the cuisine either. Their resident chef (and owner) has over 25 years experience in top-class kitchens around the world, adding a taste of his travels to his recipes. But although the menu may have far-off influences, their ingredients are still locally sourced.

The tasty food and unique setting worked wonders for eHarmony couple Mike and Allison, who got on so well they met up the day after too. Find out about their upcoming events or take a look at their carriage restaurant on their website –
