LNER pop-up restaurant will mark 100th anniversary

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its brand with a special pop-up restaurant showcasing some of the dishes served to train passengers over the past century.

The LNER 1923 Restaurant will take place on November 6 and 7 at The Cookery School at The Grand in York, the former headquarters of LNER.

During the course of each evening, diners will be transported back to the year the LNER brand first began and will also experience a taste of what may be to come in the shape of a futuristic dessert created to reflect the potential onboard cuisine 100 years from now.

“The supper-club style experience will be fully immersive, designed to stimulate the senses and take diners back to a decade filled with post-war optimism, rising prosperity, and glitzy glamour,” said the rail operator.

“With stunning 1920s décor, music from the era, and an electric atmosphere, every element will give guests a gourmet glimpse of the infamous roaring twenties.”

Whilst the event is free for guests to dine, LNER is requesting that people ‘pay’ for their meal with donations to York Foodbank by bringing a small selection of non-perishable, unopened goods that will be collected by the charity.
