Hop Festival Real Ale Train
09 Sep 2017
On the 9th & 10th September, our popular HopFest Family Fun Weekend takes place at Bodiam Station.
Our Real Ale Trains source some of the finest real ales from micro-breweries and normally include one from each of our neighbours, the Old Dairy Brewery and the Rother Valley Brewing Company.
The train of 1950's era corridor carriages (hauled by a historic steam locomotive and including wheelchair user access and seating in Petros) will be ready for boarding from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm departure and travels from Tenterden to Bodiam return. The on board bar stocks a range of real ales and during the journey a pre-booked meal will be served from the following selection:
Homemade Chicken Curry & Rice
Homemade Vegetable Curry & Rice
Local Sausages and Mash with a rich onion gravy
On arrival at Bodiam Station, a live band provides entertainment for the duration of the station stop. Arrival back at Tenterden is scheduled for 9.45pm.
The price of £29 includes return train travel, your meal, live entertainment at Bodiam and a souvenir branded pint glass to take home. All our real ales are just £3.00 pint!
