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.

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.

Happily busy. Just what was needed after another Virgin East Coast fiasco. 20 ales available.

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.

The pub is found in York, North Yorkshire, YO24 1AB.

Fantastic restoration of the Edwardian tea room at York railway station. The bar is placed centrally with drinking areas either side. Each side has handpumps and keg taps dispensing a huge array of real ales and ciders / perries and worldwide beers. A must when visiting York. Total of 20 handpumps for real ale and cider.

We have visited this pub 28 times, seen 244 different beers and tried 42 of them.
