London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has revealed its First class Christmas menu. For the first time, it includes a festive cocktail.
The blood-orange Christmas Cosmo has been created exclusively for LNER by Tom Savano. It includes zesty lime, cranberry and vodka.
Available until January 2, the festive dishes include a turkey and cranberry sausage roll topped with sage and black onion seeds and served with an orange, spiced carrot and pumpkin Christmas ketchup. Options include a cheese and Christmas slaw sandwich made with malted wheat grain bread and ravioli pasta pillows filled with creamy burrata, truffle and a spinach sauce.
Passengers can round off their onboard meal with a dessert pot of chocolate and hazelnut or a portion of Baileys Chocolate Truffles. And for passengers who want a warming drink there is apple and sweet cinnamon tea by Taylors of Harrogate.
LNER continues to support suppliers along its east coast route, including companies in London, York and Newcastle. Each one has been chosen for their passion for creating quality produce using exceptional, locally sourced ingredients.

“Nothing helps you get into the spirit of Christmas quite like food and drink and this menu provides passengers with a complimentary festive feast. Thanks to a dedicated team at LNER, it features some of the finest culinary suppliers from across our route and we’re proud to be supporting local businesses. The customer experience is a priority to us and the delicious dishes onboard are just one of the ways we can ensure a pleasant journey for our passengers travelling this winter,” said Richard Judge, Head of Customer Experience at LNER.
Customers in Standard can order food and drink through LNER’s Let’s Eat At Your Seat service. Options include a ham and Christmas slaw sandwich, truffle crisps and Yummycomb. Made in York, the latter is a sharing bag of honeycomb pieces in dark chocolate orange that is vegan and gluten-free.
