See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Converted from what was originally a coal ordering office circa 1883 and more recently a taxi office, this is the Brightwater Brewery Tap. The pub vies to be the smallest in Great Britain with only room for one or two customers ordering inside. All seating is in garden furniture on the station forecourt. An awning and heater is used for the colder and wetter months. May also open on other 'Bonus Days', which are announced via Twitter, Facebook and the website. Check if travelling any distance to visit as opening is weather dependent and seasonal. The changing beers feature those brewed by Brightwater in rotation, with an occasional guest from another local microbrewery, served by handpumps and gravity. Crisps and nuts available, plus soft drinks and wines from a small fridge. Gluten free bottled beers and branded glasses also sold. The station platform toilets may be used and are open throughout pub hours. Due to licensing restrictions only plastic glasses may be used.
