The team behind Mile High brings you their latest adventure: The Great Indian Peninsular Railway, a seven‐course colonial culinary journey from Rangoon to Kashmir.
The setting is a colonial railway carriage, staffed by uniformed waiters in traditional dress. Each course of the tasting menu takes in a different stop along the way, from Rangoon in the east to Kashmir in the west. It’s a journey of the senses: indulgent, immersive and full of surprises.
Guests are given a complimentary cocktail on arrival and with each fantasy stop they are invited to disembark the train and wet their whistles at the Bourne & Hollingsworth bar.
The meal – a mind‐blowing seven‐course tasting menu – is expertly prepared by Oliver Templeton, with each dish inspired by his own travels across the

From entering the bar (or should I say railway station) to the rousing finale, this was a fantastic evening. Entertaining and believable actors set the scene and added a huge amount to the evening. I took my parents and the actors made them laugh, while also entertaining much younger people in groups, and couples on a night out. The food was terrific, each course complementing each other well and all of a high quality. This really was a unique evening which will live long in the memory - clearly a heck of a lot of work had gone in to preparing the night, and it was well worth the money.
A perfect blend of entertainment with excellent food and delicious cocktails

Kitchen Party's Great Indian Peninsular Railway was a tour de force of well-judged entertainment provided by actors and staff, a carefully created atmosphere, beautiful attention to detail and genuinely excellent food and cocktails. The menu was interesting and amusing but also very well made - the quality of the food made a fun evening into a truly excellent one. More of these sorts of events please!

A different way to spend a Saturday night in London. The food was fantastic, I especially liked the vegetable thali. Catered well for different diets. Entertaining actors playing their roles on the train which could of been made more of during the night. Bit overpriced as it was £65 the extra for drinks (which were also good) I especially like the Gatsby cocktail.
Would recommend as a good night out for a treat due to the cost which was £80 in total with only two drinks.
great food, great experience

This was a really fun way to spend a Friday night - theatrical and well done, with just the right level of audience participation.
Food was really good, personal favourites were the sticky pork salad, the chicken livers, and the delicious dessert cake. An extra (alcoholic) mango lassi thrown in for good measure went down well too!
We thoroughly enjoyed, had good company in our travelling booth, and would highly recommend.
