A SLICE OF HISTORY
An unforgettable dining experience
Dedicated to the great Bill Shankly, this luxury restaurant celebrates a glorious piece of footballing history. After a successful playing career with Carlisle United, Bill Shankly received a telegram offering him a contract with a new club. This club was Preston North End. After accepting the offer, Shankly caught a train from Carlisle to Preston. He travelled in a luxurious First Class rail carriage and it was in this carriage that he officially signed his football contract with Preston North End Football Club.
The Carriage is a stunning restaurant, themed around that very 1930s First Class rail carriage. Combining beautiful oak panelling with fitting tributes to both Shankly and Preston and a delicious menu of homecooked food, The Carriage is a dining experience with a difference.
