A nice, what looks like recently refurbished, pub at the top of Preston Station entrance. Open plan with distinct areas set around the central bar to sit. A decent selection of real ales is available. Better than the Station Hotel over the road.

A casual glance at this pub, with its green canopies over windows and door, might convince you that it's an Irish themed pub, but nothing could be further from the truth. This is a bit of a real ale palace, with seven hand pumps on the impressive brass-railed bar in the centre of a large room that has been created by knocking down as many walls as they could get away with. The ceiling is propped up by pillars of various ages and construction, and there are very old beams painted in an odd shade of reddish brown.

Local breweries (Moorhouses, Bank Top and Prospect) are represented on the bar to the exclusion of (almost) all others, the exception being Ossett, from Wakefield. The beer range is as good an excuse as any to make the quick dash from the station if you're between trains; in fact, probably a good enough excuse to break your journey here.
