Our continuing aims are to restore the Station to its former glory circa 1930/40's, relaying track and sidings, acquiring rolling stock and add more items to our museum relating to the Station and The Midland & Great Northern Railway. Our Sidings Bar and Function Room is available for a quick bite to eat, or maybe you would like to have a lunchtime meal.

Operating as usual

Here we are again writing about changes due to Covid. Who would’ve thought this year would’ve been like this.

Firstly would like to thank all our customer, volunteers, members and staff for all your support this year through everything, we wouldn’t be where we are today without all of you.

Secondly we are having to change our opening times to reflect the second lockdown from the 5th November.
So as of the 5th November we will no longer open during the week.
We will however OPEN for takeaways only on the weekends. Times for this would be 10-dusk. We will still be able to do takeaway bacon rolls and burgers too.
However these are takeaways only meaning the seating area and toilet areas will remain closed.

Parking is allowed on site to access marriotts way for your walks/runs/exercise but this is only at the weekends.

We are hoping to open as normal from the 5th December but this is down to government decisions. (We understand that the 2nd is meant to be the end of lockdown but we are allowing time to move everything back to being table service)

Keep safe everyone and hopefully see you on weekends and back again visiting in December! πŸ₯“πŸ”πŸš‚β˜•οΈ

We have been awarded a grant from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund #HereForCulture and this is to help with tools for our workshop to help maintain our rolling stock, a new system for scanning historical documents and allowing people online to access them, and the grant will also help provide a safe play area for the children. Thanks @dcms, @HeritageFundUK and @HistoricEngland.

Saturday 26th September update.

We still have no power on our site, unless power comes back on this morning we will have to remain closed. We do apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and will keep you all updated on when we have power again on site.
Look forward to seeing you all again soon

25/09/2020

Due to the high wind causing a power outage on our site we have decided to close early today. Power isn’t due back on for at least another 4 hours and as we were closing at 6pm tonight we decided to make the hard decision to close earlier then planned.

We apologise to anyone who was planning on visiting us today and hope to see you all again soon.

We should be back open as normal tomorrow from 10am πŸ₯“πŸΊπŸ”πŸš‚

Dear Customers.

Today (Friday 18th September) we will be closing from 6pm we will not allow anybody else on site from 5:45pm, the gates will be closed at 6:15pm, the Kitchen will close at 5pm.

As the new rule of more than 6 people meeting is against the law, we feel it is unfair to put pressure on our Staff, the Police and other enforcement groups to help maintain and educate people in how to go out in this new restrictions.

We have had discussions with the Police and Broadland Council, and as with bikes gathering here tonight with the possibility of mixing in groups of more than 6, we fell it is safer for everybody that we close early tonight, the Police have already said they will be on site enforcing this new law and we do not want to put our customers in a possible awkward position of getting a fine, or indeed if it is found we have not put enough protections in place for our customers then we may be fined as well, this will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

We apologise if this will cause you any issues, but with the current position of the Virus and Government advice we think this is the best thing to do.

As some of you know over lockdown we decided to do a job we have been trying to do for a few years but have never been closed long enough to do. We thought that some of you who haven’t been able to come and see for yourselves what we have done might want to see the new sidings function room. The photos in the picture shows all the different bars we have had in the sidings room. I think it’s safe to say everyone done an amazing job. We hope you think so too.

FRIDAY NIGHTS

We are now open on Fridays till 8pm for drinks and 7pm for food. Most other nights we will close at 5pm.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, We expect all our customers to perform social distancing measures and follow the rules and guidance set out at each table which is based on government guidance.

We have 25 outside tables and 8 inside tables.

Food orders will only be delivered to tables with table numbers on, we would prefer people to order by using our ordering app β€œRound” which can be downloaded for iPhone or Android in the respective online shops, you can do this at home. We do appreciate not everybody is phone β€˜savvy’ so we also have 2 order points, on the station platform by Marriott’s Way and in the all new Sidings Bar and Function Room.

Toilets are operational but we have reduced the capacities on the gents and ladies, and are strictly limited to 2 people at once. The disabled toilet is also available for anybody to use, there is also a one way system to follow for the toilets, to ensure social distancing if there is a queue.

We prefer card payments, but if you only have cash, please use the exact money, as we cannot give change.

We are trying to keep all our customers and staff safe so there may be delays with food ordering and delivery, so please bear with us, but we will adapt as the government relaxes further Covid restrictions.

03/07/2020

As you are all aware pubs can open from the 4th July, we can confirm we are in this category and will be open from 10am tomorrow. However we have to follow the guidelines set out by the government so we kindly ask if you could help us by doing what you can to help protect not only yourselves but our staff/volunteers and other visitors.
