The Epping Fryer is resuming service from July, serving up fish and chips while you travel on a steam train. It’s a service from the Epping Ongar Railway, the heritage railway that runs from near to Epping to Ongar and back again.

There are either evening suppers, or daytime lunches available, both costing £25 which either includes an all-day pass on the railway with lunch served at 1pm, or two return trips in the evening with supper at 7:30pm.

Booking and more details are here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    *Steamed* fish, I presume? With the chips fried on the coals?
