Late afternoon into evening visit. A packed venue and we sat on the platform for some time until the crowds somewhat abated. One green colleague was scathing about the concept of passing diesel trains running under the wires.

Twenty taps. Deservedly busy.
Anarchy - Simcoe4.10GoodExtra pale and so it proved. Refreshing after a visit to the Railway Museum.
Brass Castle - Bad Kitty5.50AcceptableOverwhelmed by chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Not notes but discordant symphonies.

My first visit to this splendid establishment. Many cask beers available to chose from.
Welbeck Abbey - Henrietta3.60ExcellentA well-hopped Golden Ale.
07 Jul 2017 (Magnus Greel)
Mid evening and pub number 10 and final of today's trip before we all went our separate ways. My first visit here in this perfectly located station waiting room.
Timothy Taylor - Golden Best3.50ExcellentA swift half before the 2005 back to KX. I did not have time to make a note of the many other beers available.
16 Dec 2016 (McGargle)
Happily busy. Just what was needed after another Virgin East Coast fiasco. 20 ales available.
Bristol Beer Factory - Nova3.80ExcellentServed through a tight sparkler this was cool and refreshing.
15 Sep 2015 (HSB)
16:45 Last stop of the day. As busy as usual, with the normal difficulty in getting served. I ate there for the first time, the cheese board with Charcoal Cheddar is excellent value. Glad I ate, my journey home was horrendous with an arrival home 2 1/2 hours late.
Brewsmith - Brewsmith Bitter3.90ExcellentRefreshing bitter
Hopshackle - Humopulus4.30AcceptableHoping for hoppy. Disappointing.
