Amey TPT | 20 October 2022
Passengers using the newly opened rail service between Okehampton and Exeter St Davids will now be able to enjoy coffees, teas and some amazing cakes and bakes at The Bulleid Buffet which has just opened within the refurbished Okehampton Station building.
Leanne Knight who runs the new Bulleid Buffet has previously run cafes within Devon, a successful events catering business and Amazing Brownie Bakers, winners of ‘Best Local Food Producer’ at 2021’s Devon County Show. Local to Okehampton, Leanne and her team commented “We’re looking forward to making delicious coffees and treats for passengers before jumping about their train”.
The café will be open from 7am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 4pm Sunday.
Joining the new Bulleid Buffet Café within Okehampton Station will be the Dartmoor Railway Association Heritage Booking Office, Museum and Shop plus a Dartmoor National Park Information Centre.
Okehampton Station provides access onto the Granite Trail cycleway and its hoped the new café and information centre will become a hive of activity for visitors.
