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 real fire.

Approximately 20 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.

Stalybridge Buffet Bar is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.

Beer Guarantee

If you are not 100% happy with your beer we will gladly exchange it. Please ask for a ‘taster’ to help you find a beer you like. ‘Beer’ covers a vast array of tastes and flavours and we are especially keen to encourage people to check out real ale who perhaps have not tried it before, especially women and younger people. So do not be shy, let the bar staff know and ask to be introduced to some tasters to find one you like.
