I think you get free refreshments, or something like that. I haven't used it, though I heard announcements on the train about it.

I don't get it... why not go by economy class and buy a hundred drinks, newspapers and sandwiches?

I had a bad train experience . I was visiting Cambridge with a friend, (coming from Leeds) our connection was at Peterborough.
Unfortunately, the doors wouldn't open when we pressed the buttons! "Panic panic hammer on the door argh try the other one, wait the train's leaving peterborough.. oh **** we're going to London!"
Had to walk through all the carriages and first class to the train man to explain things. (who didn't believe us, and thought we couldn't use door buttons...)
And then, to cap it off, when we were going back home and waiting at Peterborough, we saw THE SAME train again (going somewhere else, this time) with little handwritten signs on the window "Doors do not work". They were not there before!

Second class: £10.70
First: £19.80
Given that a tea and sandwich is about £4, makes perfect sense for a 4hr30min trip

You can pay upto £200 more for first class on the Manchester to London routes! That iis if you don't book in advanced though.
