HERALD Express columnist Mitch Tonks (pictured) has launched a new, locally-sourced menu on the UK's only remaining silver service train restaurant.

Mitch has worked hand-in-hand with First Great Western to deliver a menu with a truly West Country origin.

Mitch said: "Living in Devon I am surrounded by some of the best ingredients in the world and I am committed to supporting seasonal food in the South West.

"Developing this menu with First Great Western and our west country suppliers has been great fun and a privilege. We keep on finding more and more top quality producers across Devon, Dorset, Wales and Cornwall — and what better way to eat it, than as you travel through the beautiful countryside from which it was produced."

First Great Western head of marketing, Philip Edgerton, said: "First Great Western is committed to supporting the communities we serve. What better way to do that than by helping local farmers and producers and serve up dishes cooked with their own ingredients; prepared and presented with the skill and delicacy this top of the range produce deserves."

The Pullman service run by First Great Western is available on two evening trains from London to the west country and two lunch time trains from the west country into London, five days a week.

For a half price offer to dine at Mitch's award winning Rockfish in Dartmouth, see the voucher, page 18.
