First Class

Travelling First Class with EMR​

Our First Class train travel offers a relaxed environment and more space to stretch out. It’s available on all our intercity services to and from London St Pancras.

Here's what's included with an EMR First Class ticket:

  • Spacious, comfortable seats, each with a table
  • Quieter carriages
  • Plug sockets for laptops and mobile devices
  • Light food and refreshments served at your table, Monday to Saturday


Choose from a selection of quality complimentary food, tasty treats and drinks, all served at your seat by your on board host throughout your journey. Our complimentary offer will be available to First Class customers Monday to Saturday.

On our Monday to Friday morning services, you will be offered a choice of a hot filled breakfast roll which includes a gluten-free option. Whilst we will make every effort to avoid any cross contamination, there is always a possibility of trace amounts of gluten crossing over within our small galley kitchen, therefore we cannot guarantee that our breakfast roll menu items are free of gluten. The hot breakfast rolls are served along with individually wrapped snacks including pastries, breakfast bars and biscuits.

On our Saturday morning services you will receive a cold breakfast offer of a sandwich, along with a selection of biscuits, yogurts and pastries.

Please note the breakfast options are provided up to and including the following services: 10:00 leaving Sheffield, 09:50 leaving Nottingham, and the 10:05 leaving London St Pancras.

In the afternoon there will be a choice of either a sandwich, wrap or salad, cakes and crisps, along with a selection of hot drinks, waters and fresh juice. You can now purchase alcohol on board, see the full range of alcohol available below.

The food provided during our on board First Class catering service is subject to availability.

We do not offer the First Class complimentary offer on Sundays.
