    I'll be travelling from Sheffield to Stevenage next month (weekday, leaving Sheffield approx 17:30).
    Please can anyone let me know what the current hot food service is like on the EMT services - I don't usually travel that route as I generally use ECML to Doncaster.

    On this occasion I will have been walking all day in the peak district so would be wanting a larger meal than VTEC are currently offering & the timings make it quicker via St Pancras in any case.

    Thanks.

    Taken from the EMT website, maybe a pub or restaurant maybe be better option.

    I've not used it in a while but the stuff I've had from the All Day Menu has always been decent and is good value, although they didn't always have everything available. I don't think you can expect free wine, thats only out of London in the evening peak as far as I know, but you'll get tea, coffee, water, juice and biscuits.
