Terminate your thirst at this terminus stop, visit the Buffer Stops Bar!

Sited in a cosy waiting room, the ideal place to stop after a journey up the line to Rawtenstall, visit the bustling little Buffer Stops bar. This pub is a great place to enjoy a drink whilst watching the trains roll in and out.

Ales and Snacks

The Buffer Stops Bar offers a bonanza of beverages. There are a total of five real ales and one real cider on handpump, as well as a variety of lagers, continental beers, traditional pub snacks and locally sourced pies.

Curl up in a cosy carriage

Enjoy a pint with friends on a classic railway carriage. One of our heritage railway carriages – in the winter months (usually January and early February) – is sited just outside of the Buffer Stops on the station platform and offers an atmospheric environment to relax with a beer or hot drink.
