Sit down and enjoy a hot snack, tea and coffee in the ‘Buffer Stop’ … the on site restaurant car of the Keith and Dufftown Railway.

Good Food at Nice Prices

Located on the platform at Dufftown, our combined Kitchen Car and Cafeteria Car go to make up the ‘Buffer Stop’, serving delicious hot and cold snacks, drinks and larger meals, and open most weekends during the operating season of the Keith and Dufftown Railway (Easter to September).

All fresh food is prepared by our friendly staff in the Kitchen, and you can enjoy it in the comfort of the cafe car. If you are travelling from Keith, on the Keith and Dufftown Railway, or indeed just passing Dufftown Station there is plenty of time to partake of a hot bacon roll, a cup of tea and fruit cake (or indeed any other item from our varied menu). For those travelling by car there is parking at Dufftown Station.

The seating area of the cafe car is wheelchair accessible and our staff will be on hand to provide any further assistance needed.

Private Hire

The ‘Buffer Stop’ is available for private hire special events, and can be adapted to suit any kind of event, from children’s parties, buffet self-service, to formal dining. A wide range of food and drink is available to suit your needs – please contact us for prices, bookings and to discuss your requirements further.
