The Flag and Whistle café

 

The Flag and Whistle Cafe

Due to Covid-19 restriction the F&W will only able to offer take-away food and drink until 17th May 2021.

 

Located at Toddington Station, the Flag & Whistle is a franchised café run by Lynne Tiddy and her enthusiastic team who are dedicated to offering Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway passengers a warm and friendly welcome, along with fresh hot and cold homemade food and drinks.

 

The Flag & Whistle will be open on running days from 12th April 2021 for takeaway food and drink.

 

Throughout the year the GWSR has a number of special events which the Flag & Whistle team throw themselves into, with dedicated menus and, at the slightest opportunity, dressing up.

 

When trains are running the Flag & Whistle is always open, but we open on some non-operating days as well. See our opening times for the year below. Just pop in if all you want is a cup of tea and piece of cake or a light lunch. Please note that, on some special event days, access to the Flag and Whistle is limited to event ticket-holders only.

 

If you have larger requirements we also cater for themed evenings, birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, car rally meeting points - in fact if you need a place to meet with good parking, great food and welcoming staff why not contact Lynne to discuss, on email: LynneTiddy@aol.com,  mobile: 07717 787378 or telephone: 01242 621903.
