A pint of real ale inside The Trackside pub
Caption: Sample a selection of some of the finest local ales

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 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.
