Inside the Imperial Crown hotel with the entrance facing the railway station entrance this is both the handiest place for a drink if you have time whilst changing trains, and one of the most pleasantly laid back venues in the town. As this is a hotel bar the prices are higher than most in Halifax, but the surroundings make up for it. Named after the controversial wife of Edward VIII the decor is suitably pseudo 1930ís sporting some lovely soft-furnished chairs, wood paneling and a partly stain glassed ceiling. Sadly the drinks selection is poor with only 2 lagers, a bitter and a cider on offer on tap, however there is bottled craft ale from the Black Sheep brewery so it is possible to enjoy a decent drink and enjoy the fantastic ambiance of this location. There are a couple of picnic tables out front too and the restaurant area is attached and is decorated similarly and very reasonably priced.
