Play Station Buffet

Enjoy fantastic barista-style coffee and homemade cakes to keep up your energy. The perfect pit stop for families during a shower, where the kids can let off steam in the soft play area and the adults can keep an eye on them sitting down with a hot drink.

All Aboard The Orion

Step back in time and enjoy this fun yet intimate setting for a spot of good tea, coffee and delicious homemade cake.

Please note that the Orion Pullman Carriage is now closed for Winter but is still available to hire. Please contact us for details.

The Orion is open for the May-Day Bank Holiday weekend and then daily from 28th May until October 11.00am – 4.30pm. Entry is free.

This beautifully preserved Orion Pullman Car was part of the Golden Arrow train that used to run from Victoria Station, London to the Channel coast. Lovingly refurbished, it stands proudly now at Pecorama’s own Beer Victoria Station. It is ideally suited for those wanting to reminisce in the past and soak up the nostalgia – not suitable for the very young.
