Additional items to buy from our at-seat service (PDF) 

Please note that the catering service in First class will vary depending on the type of train you are travelling on. Many of our services between Cardiff and Birmingham, between Birmingham and Stansted Airport, also between Birmingham and Nottingham offer tea, coffee, water and biscuits rather than the full First Class menu. First Class catering services on routes between Bournemouth and Reading will offer a light continental breakfast in the morning, until arriving in Reading, then the full First Class breakfast menu is available from Reading on-wards.
