Start at The West Riding at Dewsbury station, we’re open from 12 on a Monday, 11 from Tuesday – Fri and 10am on a Saturday.

After Dewsbury, 9 minutes onto Huddersfield where the train station holds not one, but two real ale pubs as well as our sister pub The Sportsman which is just a 3 or 4 minute walk left out of the Huddersfield Train Station and under the viaduct.
Then from Huddersfield you can venture on to Slaithwaite, Marsden, Greenfield & Mossley where there is a real ale pub within walking distance of all stations before arriving at Stalybridge.
