If you love Indian food and visit Newcastle, UK, try this fun evening.
On the platform at Newcastle railway station, you meet your host who is dressed in Indian costume. Having guided you to your train he brings you a pre-dinner drink. In spring and summer the view from the train of Newcastle and the countryside is interesting.
After arrival at the destination about thirty minutes away, you use the bridge to cross over the railway line. This is followed by another optional pre-dinner drink. You enjoy this in the cosy lounge of the attractive Indian restaurant which is the converted former railway station building. Having ordered your four course dinner from the menu as you sat on the train, you do not have to wait long to be led to your comfortable table. You can enjoy the dinner swiftly and return on the next train or take your time and return on the later train.
After a delicious dinner you leave through another door to the adjacent platform where your train soon approaches to return you to Newcastle.
