Step back in time and visit one of the very few remaining Victorian station buffet bars. Great beers in unique surroundings.

Dating from 1885 the Staylbridge 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.

Situated on Platform 4 of Stalybridge Station, the buffet bar is a multi-award winning pub with a fine reputation for service, atmosphere and of course great drinks. Also part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.
