Railway-themed pub located right in Huddersfield’s rail station. There’s a number of different rooms separated by a long bar. The bathrooms were pretty atrocious, and I was visiting right after the bar opened. The service was slow but friendly. The selection’s reasonably large, but entirely uninspiring. All the usual crap on keg plus 4 or so cask options. There was local cask stuff available, so respect for that. There’s about 30 bottles available. Stuff like Chimay seemed to be on offer. I didn’t try the food, but it was recommended by the locals. The value’s fine, in line with what other pubs in the town charged. Overall, it’s an OK place to stop. If it wasn’t in such a convenient location, I wouldn’t recommend it. I found the King’s Head (only 20 meters away) to be more interesting.

Fairly average and atmosphere-less bar at the station. Beer range was quite large, but pretty bland.

Fantastic use of a historic and beautifully designed railway station, still very much in use today. The pub is to the left of the passenger entrance and can be accessed from either the front or from Platform 1 which the main station building naturally backs on to. This is extremely useful for watching your train come in and not having to stand around waiting (especially in the cold) for it. The pub itself naturally has a railway theme running through it and there’s no end of memorabilia on the walls, although not limited exclusively to rail transport. Each room has a different feel, the two backing onto the platform feel more historic, akin to where you’d have a cup of tea before a daytime journey. There’s no shortage of ales available, at least 8 from pumps when I was there and this lured me in as my train was pulling in and I decided to miss it for a pint and get the next one. Food is available and was reasonably priced.
