Paid a visit this lunch time. Was quieter than I was expecting so had no problems finding a seat. 8 pumps at the bar, all of which were on. A few by Marstons and one by Banks's, can't remember them all but I had an Attermire Session IPA by Settle Brewing Company, at £3 exactly. It was a nice IPA, perhaps served a little on the cold side, but it is fair to assume the weather at the moment would affect the ambient temperature of the cellar.

There is plenty of space in what is a fairly interesting building. The small play area is at one end of the building so fairly easy to avoid if you wish to do so. There was a family in and I could not hear them from where I was sat. One of the real coal fires was lit.

On the food side, plenty to choose from on the menu and specials board, and the Cajun chicken burger I went for was delicious with exceptionally tasty chips (and chips are something I am fussy about). That set me back £8.45 so fairly standard pub prices for food.

I had heard that this place brews some of its own beers, but I did not notice that reflected on the pumps.

I would be more than happy to return again, for beer, food, or both!

A decent pub with a good choice of cask ales. One pint that wasn't quite right was quickly changed by the bar staff without any problems. Good food too at reasonable prices. The pub can get busy with families with young children, which isn't everyone's ideal but no doubt means the pub is busy and viable.
Overall, well worth a visit and couldn't be handier for the station!

A wider choice of ales and now several imported draught beers. Friendly welcome and efficient service - with the offer of tasters. The Rothaus is excellent. The outside seating area is a great sun trap in fine weather. Well worth a visit. 10/10.

Visited 2pm 29/11/14.
Usually good quality beer but today, not the case. My pint was cloudy, just about drinkable, and someone else took back a pint of Thwaites Wainwright. And as for the Rtwo Dtwo beer! Definitely home brew quality. Maybe it will improve if they persevere.

I've always been curious about this pub having passed it many times on express trains between Liverpool and Manchester. Last Saturday I decided to get the 'stopper' train back from Manchester and give it a go. Inside it's nice and airy - a converted station building with a high roof. The vibe is a bit like the Head Of Steam in Huddersfield, albeit on a smaller scale, tastefully decorated with a large main bar area and rooms off to the left and right. When I arrived around 6pm the place was busy, showing a rugby international on TV, and I was almost deafened by someone bellowing "GO ON... GET IN THERE" as I ordered my pint, although the barman did ask him to pipe down a bit! There was a decent selection of 8 handpumps on, unfortunately my first pint (Steam Hopper IPA) wasn't great. Cloudy and tasting more like homebrew than a crisp quality IPA, I should have returned it, and indeed I paid for this a few hours later! Fortunately I stayed for a second (Privateer Dark Revenge), and this was much better - rich and served in perfect condition. The bar staff were generally attentive and friendly although one of the girls admitted she didn't know much about ale because she preferred vodka - fair enough I suppose! On the whole I liked the place and would make an effort to return if passing this way.
