I've long wanted to visit this magnet for real ale drinkers and was not disappointed. Its overall impact is greater than the sum of its parts due to the fact that this is a rare relic of a bygone age of the railway. Beer choice...More

Step back in time & visit one of the very few remaining Victorian station buffet bars. Dating from 1885 the Stalybridge Buffet Bar has retained the original marble-topped bar, back fittings and the welcoming fire. A dozen years ago it was extended and included the 1st class ladies waiting room with its ornate ceiling, keeping all original features. It's a veritable museum with photographs of the station in it's heyday, railway and other memorabilia. Stalybridge Buffet Bar is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.
