Come and join us for a traditional two-day mid-summer steaming of the engines! Enjoy the Engineman’s Rest Cafe, our Old Smithy Bar and Barbecue and relax and enjoy the lovely Wiltshire scenery in our picturesque grounds. There are two steam pumping engines at Crofton now and a visit to a Crofton steaming allows you to chat to our team and see the fruits of the restoration in the early days of preservation as well as learning about the various modifications that have taken place over the 200 years and more since the pumping station was built.
In addition to our homemade eats and treats we have carefully selected mouth-watering products to serve you in the cafe. We have teamed up with a number of small family run artisan producers, including a local brewery and distillery, a local pie maker, a local cider farm, a local tea maker, a small coffee roastery and a local family butcher. They are all passionate about what they do and that really shows in the products they make. Hope to see you there!
