All of our dining trains are advance booking only. As these trains are immensely popular we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.
Due to the fixed seating layout bookings are made per complete table of two or table of four.
Bookings can only be made with full payment.
Prices include train fare and meal but exclude drinks. Wines, spirits, beer and soft drinks are available from the wine waiting staff at extra cost. There is an on-board cash bar available immediately prior to the first departure from Alresford station.
To assist our staff in making the most of your visit, please indicate at the end of the booking if there is a special celebration and provide us with the name of the person or persons for whom this is a special occasion.
Menus and Dietary Requirements
All of our dining trains have a fixed menu which will be available on the website for each particular date. If you require the vegetarian option this must be ordered in advance. To avoid embarrassment on the day, please give details on the booking form or at least two weeks before if any member of your party has any special dietary requirements or allergies that require a different meal to be provided, eg: vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, no nuts, no red meat, no mushrooms, no shellfish, etc. Please note that it is impossible for us to provide an alternative to the fixed menu if we are only advised on the day.

Smart dress code - shirts and jackets for the gentlemen and dresses or smart trousers for the ladies. Many of our guests like to wear formal evening dress - lounge suits and cocktail dresses. Strictly no jeans, trainers, shorts or flip-flops.
We regret that there can be no refund for ‘no show’ customers. Cancellations notified in writing, at least four weeks before the booked date will be refunded less a £10 admin fee; shorter notice cancellations are not entitled to a refund but the company will try to re-sell the tickets. If a purchaser is found then the cost, less an administration charge of £10, will be refunded.
Customers with limited mobility can use their wheelchair to board the service but, due to the internal dimensions of our dining carriages, wheelchairs cannot then be used for access to seats or for mobility once on board.
There are four toilets on board, two in each coach.

No smoking or vaping is allowed anywhere on the Watercress Belle.
