Station and Train Buffets

Our station and on train buffets provide drinks and snacks for our customers. The Buffet Department is a friendly team and provide sustenance to our customers during all running days and events.

We need people who can:


  • Work on Tills.

  • Be fairly good at arithmetic to be able to add prices up on the go.

  • Interact with the public and also be able to give information out.

  • Be prepared to work on a moving train serving hot drinks and snacks.

  • It can be physical at times with the need to stock up depleted stocks in between train arrivals and departures.

  • Some early starts and late finishes at times may be required.

  • Interact with customers and able to work in a sometimes very busy environment.

  • Be prepared to either work in a Station or on a moving train.


Whilst previous experience is an advantage, it is not essential as full training will be given.
