Anyone up for another Ale Trail?


* Book yourself a room at one of the b&b/hotels in walking distance of one of the stations - From Stalybridge to Batley and all points between.
* Buy a day rover ticket at the station.
* Jump on and off the TransPennine Express trains at your leisure up and down the line stopping at the real ale pubs along the route.

The pubs of the Real Ale Trail

Batley — Cellar Bar: Real ales from across Yorkshire and beyond, with two permanent real ale pumps and three guest beers. It also has a pool table and dartboard.
Dewsbury — West Riding: The old rail station waiting rooms are home to the West Riding pub, offering a cosy atmosphere and impressive range of ales. It also serves food, and based in the station itself, you’re mere paces from the train to the next stop.
Mirfield — Navigation Tavern: An ambassador for Theakston beers, the Navigation is by the canal and also hosts its own beer festivals.
Huddersfield — King’s Head: The King’s Head always offers a few local brews, with Golcar Brewery, Magic Rock and Elland Brewery regularly on the pumps. You might catch some live music too. And the Head of Steam.
Slaithwaite — The Commercial: Based in the centre of the village, the Commercial boasts eight hand pulled ales, some from Empire Brewery, located just down the road.
Marsden — The Riverhead Brewery Tap: The Riverhead has 10 real ale hand pumps — some of which serve the pub’s own ales, made in the microbrewery in the cellar. Food is served in the upstairs dining room.
Greenfield — The Railway Inn: The first stop outside of Yorkshire, the Railway Inn offers real ales, live music and a games room — and it’s directly opposite the train station.
Stalybridge — Station Buffet Bar: One of the few remaining Victorian station buffet bars, Station Buffet Bar is the end of the trail (or the start, for some!), with a rotating beer menu of eight real ales and foreign bottled beers.
