A new refreshed menu now available onboard our trains03/05/19
We have introduced a new onboard menu of freshly prepared meals for our First Class customers and a new and improved range of hot dishes from the newly branded Let’s Eat Café Bar.
The new menu has been created by our team of LNER Hero Chefs, who were carefully selected based on their passion for food, local food provenance and commitment to customer service.
Harnessing some of the latest food trends, the menu has been totally refreshed and now includes:
- Holy Moly breakfast avocado on toast served with a poached egg and fresh tomato (vegetarian)
- Spinach, pea and sweet potato curry and rice (vegan)
- Brined chicken supreme with butter beans, chorizo and green beans
- Orkney white and Shropshire blue served with celery sticks, Hop on Board ale & apricot chutney and Carr's water biscuits
In Standard we are offering four hot options from our Let’s Eat Café Bar, to provide high quality, hot food to all customers.
The Hero Chefs had a desire to use produce sourced from suppliers along LNER’s route. To do this, the chefs worked alongside established local suppliers builing new relationships with the likes of Beckleberry’s in Newcastle who now supply our savoury tarts and desserts.
Les Brearley who is one of the Hero Chefs and has worked for LNER for 18 years said: “Developing a menu to be both cooked from fresh and served onboard was a real challenge but I’m really happy with all the dishes we’ve created.
“We wanted to ensure that it reflected current food trends and include more vegetarian and vegan options. It has been a great team effort and I’ve really enjoyed getting out and meeting the suppliers along our route.”
Claire Ansley, Customer Experience Director at LNER, said: “The Hero Chefs initiative was born out of a desire to bring our dishes back in house with our onboard chefs taking the lead.
“The Hero Chefs initiative gives customers freshly prepared food that looks and tastes great, and we will continue to explore how we can offer the best onboard dining experience in the industry.”
Our new Azuma trains, coming from 15 May, will serve First Class passengers a two-course Rest of the Day menu Monday to Friday.
