The Steam and Moorland "Engine Shed" Restaurant is OPEN again.  We look forward to welcoming you back.   

To avoid disappointment - Booking may be advisable at busy times.


The Engine Shed Restaurant has been designed with YOUR comfort and warmth in mind.

Our old café was a great place, but was 14 years old; it was not comfortable enough and was difficult to heat in winter.

The Engine Shed Restaurant boasts underfloor heating - run off an environmentally-friendly ground-source heating system.

Our watchwords when creating the Engine Shed restaurant were: comfort / ambience / entertainment  / friendliness / helpfulness / warmth. We hope you will agree that we have generally succeeded.

We have doubled the number of staff, including two chefs. We are trying very hard to keep the friendliness, welcome, and homeliness of the old café.


Disabled Facilities

The Engine Shed Restaurant has been designed with disabled access and facilities in mind.

We have the only NAMED lift in Pickering - the Sir Nigel Gresley Lift !

Access and Facilities for wheelchair users are excellent. We also keep two wheelchairs - in the stairwell - in order that people do NOT always need to get their own wheelchairs out of their cars.


Model Railway

Model RailwayYou may have heard that we have a model railway that runs right around the entire restaurant. The kids have certainly heard about it. Operating (gently and quietly) throughout the entire day. It seems we are ALL kids at heart ! 


Background Music

We play background music and/or radio at a low volume.  We can also put various TV and video to the television.
