The Brief Encounter Refreshment Room Bistro & Bar at Carnforth Station is owned and managed by Liam Law and Andrea Wren. It is known most famously known by film buffs from the role that it played in the 1945 David Lean film “Brief Encounter” that starred Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson with a supporting role played by Stanley Holloway.
In the film, the station is referred to as Milford Junction, but the the actual location was Carnforth Station. The Refreshment Room has been faithfully restored to its 1940’s period glory and offers a superb range of home made food, licensed bar and top quality hot beverages.
