About the Pub

Acquired by the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, and reopened 5th Feb 2020 with a new identity and a refurbishment including alterations aimed at improving cellar temperature. This is a food-led establishment, providing meals for users of both the national rail network and the preserved line. The bar opens at noon, though but beer may be ordered from 10am with a sit down meal. Up to four ales are available depending on demand, sourced from the nearby Wishbone Brewery or local distributor ABV. The train times for Keighley station are displayed on an overhead monitor. The cafe-bar is available for hire in the evenings. The adjoining Express cafe counter opens from 6am Monday to Friday for take away tea, coffee, and breakfast.

Historic Interest

Originally separate rooms for the Great Northern and Midland Railway parcels offices, which had goods inwards and goods outwards offices within the station complex. In 1916 it became the dedicated Midland Parcels Office covering both goods inwards and goods outwards. Following its demise as a parcels office it has variously been a second hand furniture shop, a musicians centre, and a cafe. Some people may recognise the location from films and TV productions such as Yanks (1979), and you too can stand on the footbridge (but not the roof).
