LNER announces free pop-up event for 100th anniversary

London North Eastern Railway is to celebrate its 100th anniversary with a free pop-up restaurant.

The British train operating company was founded in 1923 and on November 6 and 7 will celebrate the centenary by offering customers the chance to "travel back in time" with a free pop-up restaurant at The Grand in York, which is where the former headquarters of LNER were.

In a statement, LNER said: "For the past 100 years, LNER’s chefs have created culinary delights for our customers, always striving for excellence. Whilst our menu has evolved over the years, our commitment hasn’t wavered, and ‘The 1923 Restaurant’ gives us an opportunity to celebrate this and spotlight the culinary talent we continue to nurture."

During the course of each evening, diners will be transported back to the year the LNER brand first began, by savouring delectable dishes from the past and present. They’ll also be able to experience a taste of what may be to come in the shape of a fabulously futuristic dessert created to reflect the potential on-board cuisine 100 years from now.

While the event is free, visitors are being encouraged to make a donation to the Yorkshire foodbank with non-perishable and unopened food items.
