Bryn donned his chef whites to prepare dishes on a service from London Euston to Holyhead before making his way through the First Class carriage to meet and greet customers.
This is the first time Bryn has travelled on board a Virgin Trains Voyager to hear thoughts about his menu. He regularly travels on the North Wales route, whilst working between Odette’s in Primrose Hill and his restaurant at Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay.
The First Class Menu is the third Bryn has created since he began working in partnership with Virgin Trains in January 2015. Available exclusively to customers travelling in First Class on the North Wales route on Monday – Friday evenings, it offers a choice of three mains (Coq-au-Vin with Roasted Potatoes; Chargrilled Asparagus and Polenta with Roasted Tomatoes; Ham Hock Terrine with Shallot Chutney) and two desserts (Chocolate, Hazelnut and Raisin Pot; or Cheese and Biscuits).
Bryn Williams, who is from Denbigh, said: “Being local to the North Wales route, I’m passionate about producing tasty, seasonal dishes for Virgin Trains customers travelling between Holyhead and London. I’m proud of my latest menu, so I was really pleased to join the Virgin Trains crew in preparing and serving food on board the train to North Wales. It was great to experience the journey in the kitchen galley and see the dishes come to life. Meeting customers and hearing their comments about the food was definitely the highlight – it makes our months of hard work all the more worthwhile.”
Gaynor Stewart, Customer Experience Manager at Virgin Trains on the west coast, said: “At Virgin Trains we care about our customers and are always looking at ways to surprise and delight them. We’re proud of the menu we have created in collaboration with Bryn and wanted to surprise our customers travelling on the North Wales route and make their experience of the menu that little more special. Having Bryn on board certainly did that and gave them a journey to remember.”
