Catering back on Eurostar

Eurostar, the high-speed rail link between the UK and mainland Europe, is reinstating its full on-board catering offer following changes made due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Travellers in Standard class can once again be able to choose from a range of food and drinks in Café Métropole, whilst those in Standard Premier and Business Premier can sit back and enjoy a meal served to their seat. The return of on-board catering completes the full service, following the re-opening of Eurostar business lounges in August.
To reduce contact during food service some changes have been made, with lids kept on dishes served at seat and accompaniments such as bread and pastries served in packaging to ensure minimal contact. In addition, anti-viral wipes and anti-viral hand gel are now offered to travellers with at seat food service, and menus will shortly be available online using a QR code. In Café Metropole, customers are advised to pay by card if possible, to remove contact with cash.
To provide more flexibility on bookings, all Eurostar fares are now available to exchange with no fee, up to 14 days before departure. The flexible fares applY to all bookings until 31 December and are valid for any dates of travel at the time of purchase.
There are now up to four trains daily each way to Paris, twice daily to Brussels, with Rotterdam/Amsterdam introduced 26 October.
