A return trip following last years event here.

Meeting at The Buffet Bar at Stalybridge Railway Station from 1pm to around 5pm.

About the Buffet Bar

Step back in time & visit one of the very few remaining Victorian station buffet bars. Dating from 1885, it has retained the original marble-topped bar, back fittings and the welcoming fire.

A dozen years ago it was extended into the owners living quarters and 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. Friendly staff, a marvellous ever changing range of 8 real ales (over 7000 different so far) , draught farm cider, along with Belgium and other foreign bottled beers, will please the most discerning drinker.

Cheap old fashioned snacks such as tasty black peas and sandwiches along with daily specials, homemade pie and peas, bacon casserole and all day breakfast are available.

Freshly made coffee and tea by the pot are also on offer. Eat in the bar or the conservatory and sit out on the platform on a sunny day.

It’s well worth waiting for another train!

See you then.
