Your evening commute gets a tasty twist

Eating on the underground is widely considered a no-go – that is, unless you’re on board the UK’s only tube supper club. You Can Dine In A Vintage Tube Carriage

At, diners are invited for a meal in a reimagined 1960s Victoria Line carriage, found within the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum in East London. The stationed train has been transformed into a pop-up restaurant, with space for 35 diners, and tables decked out with white linen and silverware.

Aside from the novelty factor, the food is nothing to be sniffed at. Chef Beatriz Maldonado Carreno (known widely as Bea) cooks up a six-course menu inspired by her homeland of Colombia. The gourmet experience kicks off with starters of frijoles con arepa (refried beans with cornmeal cakes) and blue corn tortillas with corn fed chicken, followed by mains including seasonal asado (pork and beef with chimichurri and balsamic glazed plantain). Vegan and veggie options are also available. 

After a passion fruit palate cleanser, dessert is served: currently that’s Postre Barracho, an Amaretto and rum-soaked sponge, topped with almond custard and almond praline. All this is paired with South American wines and cocktails.

The original features of the 1967 tube carriage have been retained, with moquette seating and a mix of large communal tables and more private spaces. And don’t worry: you won’t have to listen to that notorious roar of the Victoria Line: instead soft jazz music plays in the background. Quirky date night idea, perhaps? was founded almost eight years ago, and has been run by Nick Atkins alongside chef Bea since 2018. Its setting, The Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum, is a volunteer-led museum housed in a former Victorian pumping station, where you can also see original steam engines from the Victorian era.
