Greater Anglia has announced that it will be keeping its on-train catering service on its Norwich to London trains on Sundays.
Additionally, an at-seat trolley service will also be provided.
This announcement follows a review of the operator’s on-train catering arrangement.
In December, Greater Anglia announced that it would no longer provide catering on some early morning Intercity services on Monday to Saturdays and all day on Sundays.
However, the operator has decided to provide an at-seat service on all Norwich – London Sunday services from 15 March (except on those Sundays where engineering works are taking place on the Norwich – London line).
Due to low demand, catering services will be discontinued on the following services: the 05.00 and 05.30 from Norwich to London and the return services from London to Norwich at 07.30 and 07.55 on Monday to Fridays; and the 05.00, 05.30 and 06.00 Norwich to London and return 07.30, 08.00 and 08.30 trains from London to Norwich on Saturdays.
What did the officials say?
A Greater Anglia spokesperson said:
“Following a review, we are pleased to be able to confirm that we will continue to provide on-train catering on our intercity services on Sundays. We hope that customers will enjoy the excellent range of refreshments available from the at-seat trolley service and that the opportunity to have a drink and a snack during their journey adds to their experience of travelling by train.
“We continue to provide catering on the majority of our intercity services throughout the week. Our new intercity trains have been built with a café bar, so we can provide a café bar service or an at-seat trolley service or both.
“We have invested heavily to improve the quality and choice of food and drink outlets at our stations, giving customers even more choice about where and what they choose to buy.”
