The old waiting room of Dewsbury station is one on the trans pennine route that attracts real ale and train buffs alike. It is friendly, often busy and has a great range of beers on tap. They also happily serve tea and coffee! A simple menu of pie and peas, sandwiches, with more exotic options of falafel and lamb kebabs... More

Visited on a cold and very wet Friday lunchtime. Terrific selection of cask ale and good value home cooked food. Lots of railwayana on display plus log fires! Arrived around 1pm, around 15 punters in, 10 minutes later 40 people arrived off a train on a pub crawl.

Haven't been out in Dewsbury for years, so this was a pleasant surprise. Perfectly located right next to the railway station (and the taxis). A fine selection of real ales on tap (Mudslinger was good stuff). Good atmosphere, pretty cheap. We'll be back.

The impressive range of beers with 10 hand pumps must suit anyone who enjoys a good pint such as Black Sheep, which I sampled. Unfortunately I had just missed the homemade pie by a day (served only... More

Whilst your on the real ale trail The West Riding on Dewsbury station is a must place to go. Excellent choice of ales and a very good food selection and are very reasonably priced, Everyone in our group did enjoy their food, on the other hand Scotch eggs on the bar at £2 each are the best I have ever...

Just a great selection of good beers, especially like the fact you can get a taster, or the do 3 gills for £3 (at least I think it was that cost), no airs and graces, just good beer.

Description
Real Ale, Real Cider, Real Food, Real Fires, Real People, Real Passion...Real Pub. Situated in the original waiting room, on Platform 2, of Dewsbury train station The West Riding was the first member of the beerhouses family, back in 1994, its' our flag ship pub, it's success and experience has been passed on to the other four pubs in the group... Inviting, friendly, approachable staff and customers, facilitating an inkling that after one visit, you're pretty much a regular and will be welcomed back fondly with open arms and a big grin! We've a top notch selection of ale from local and countrywide breweries, kept to Cask Marque quality standards. Beautiful outer architecture, enhanced by cascading ivy on the front of the building. Inside a three room set up with quirky signs and pictures adorning the walls, giving a weary traveller a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The West Riding Refreshment Rooms is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.
