Restaurant description

A truly unique eatery, Sidings Mediterranean Restaurant is housed inside converted Pullman-style railway carriages. Perfect for train enthusiasts, diners get views out overlooking the tracks and surrounding countryside, with an al fresco garden area being the perfect suntrap for summertime drinks.

A diverse taste of the Mediterranean is offered on the Sidings Restaurant menu, starting off with nibbles for the table, like meatballs in tomato and basil sauce, and prawns cooked with feta, cherry tomatoes and ouzo. Classic options such as moussaka and penne pasta with chicken and asparagus are popular choices, with grill delicacies including mixed kebabs and the Cyprus beef burger with halloumi.

Sunday roasts at Sidings Mediterranean Restaurant in York come with all the trimmings, while the drinks menu features Greek and Italian beers, and a select wine list.

A quirky setting with a charming feel, Sidings Mediterranean Restaurant is a 15-minute drive from central York.

    We dined in the evening in the buffet carriage resturant which was lovely. Our food was very enjoyable. Service was good. And a nice touch after we had eaten the chef came round and asked if we had enjoyed our meal.

    2nd time visiting,and pleased to say it was the same as the 1st time.Excellent food,service,and reasonable prices.A great shame we visited in the middle of the covid crisis,I can only imagine the restaurant would have an even better atmosphere when full and free of masks.Thus said; the level of cleanliness and safety was excellent.Throughly recommend.
