Situated on Platform 2 and set against the unique backdrop of Bury Bolton Street Station, The Trackside provides a selection of up to ten real ales as well as award winning ciders and perries. The traditional pub serves Lancastrian food, from home-made pies to seasonal dishes, using local suppliers wherever possible. The children's menu offers great lunchtime options during your day out at the railway.

We are sorry for the lack of working toilet facilities on Platform 2, Bury Bolton Street Station, and are aware of the feedback regarding the current portaloo arrangements. We are in the process of upgrading our provisions in this regard, and getting fully furnished, fully lit temporary toilets, whilst we wait for repairs to be completed, which should be in the next few weeks.

We thank you for your continued patience and support.

  • We pop down here a lot to sit and watch the trains come in and out, occasionally jumping on to go into Tammy, taking a scrumpy cider with us from the Trackside.
