Well behaved dogs are most welcome on site and in the carriages and café.

Please read our ‘Doggy Etiquette Guidance’ for more information.

Due to the restricted space on the train and around tables, and for the comfort and protection of staff, other customers, and Poppy the resident Labrador, we have prepared some guidance for dog owners.

Please will you ensure that you observe the following:

  • The dog should be clean, dry and not excessively shedding hair.

  • Kept under the tables – not allowed to block the aisles or other areas and must not be able to dash out.

  • To be kept on a short lead at all times while on site, both indoors and outdoors.

  • Not allowed to bark.

  • Must not disturb or upset other guests or dogs.

  • Muzzled if they have a history or tendency to ‘snap.’

  • Never on the furniture (even if it is on a coat or blanket) or knees or allowed to put paws or noses on the tables. ‘Paws on Floors’ please!

  • Encouraged to leave at home or use hooks on the platform if the above is not possible.

  • Always clear up any dog mess and take away with you or place in the platform bins.

  • Not allow dogs to eat food or lick station crockery.


We provide water bowls around the site and dog hooks are available in a shady area of the platform. Doggie treats and ice-cream can be purchased from our shop – please ask for details.


Thankyou for your co-operation in this matter.
