    First Class on GWR, LNER & Greater Anglia

    Thank you for that, very good to know, although is wine and beer in 1st class definitely complimentary? I just looked on their website and although it mentions hot drinks and water, it does not mention free alcohol, although I can see that wine & beer is available to purchase from the on board...

    First Class on GWR, LNER & Greater Anglia

    Not sure what the difference in cost is, but if you can do it in first, it may be worth it, as there would be more room and less people in the carriages, better for keeping your distance from other people cv wise. If you do have an all line, or any type of rover ticket, how do you make seat...

    First Class on GWR, LNER & Greater Anglia

    I have now done the First Class journey on GWR, I was very impressed, the 1st Lounge was open at Paddington, table service by friendly staff, serving, complimentary teas, coffee, water, juice, crisps, biscuits etc & at the time I was there, about 10.30, croissants. Exactly the same service when...

    First Class on GWR, LNER & Greater Anglia

    Thank you for all of that, interesting that Avanti is doing Alcohol now, I don't think it shows that yet on their website although it may have been updated since I looked a few days ago. Hopefully LNER may follow suit soon.

    Alcohol on Long Distance Trains at the moment

    When I was on GWR last week, I did have bottle of water and small carton of orange juice, I just removed my mask briefly when sipping these, replacing it immediately afterwards. There was infact a buffet trolley on the trains that I was travelling on, so they realised that passengers would have...

    Alcohol on Long Distance Trains at the moment

    Yes, I fully agree with you, I was just thinking of bringing on board a couple of sandwiches and having a couple of small glasses of wine, it is a journey of nearly 4 hours. I'll see how things are on my travel days. I shall also have a look at the pubs / bars mentioned here at STP.

    Alcohol on Long Distance Trains at the moment

    Does anyone know why some TOCs have banned Alcohol on trains at the moment, although those with a limited catering service, are now offering tea/coffee/soft drinks & snacks? I presume it is to do with CV19. I was on a GWR service last week and another chap was having a couple of can of beers...
