a family micropub on the platform- imagine if every station had one of these? like all of its ilk, friendly and good ale (5 handpumps). snacks were popular this lunchtime. it's very very micropubby and the atmosphere is pure CAMRA. I don't think a little tasteful music would hurt here when it's quiet, but many will disagree. the Royal Station is now a good alternative in between trains but this remains the one for the purists. i found it a bit humdrum really.

We were lucky to get served, as it was just on two o'clock when we turned up here. Carnforth seems to be a busy little drinking town on a Saturday afternoon, as the Station Hotel had been rammed when we looked in before coming here, and this was almost as popular. A completely different crowd, of course, this one being the real ale drinkers with their rain-sodden coats and equally wet dogs, to judge by the smell. It would have been a dilemma if the pub hadn't just been closing, as the beers were tempting but the dogs off-putting. Beers were from local micros such as Barngates and Old School, with an interesting outsider from Banks & Taylor. Service was friendly and so were the locals, so I'll be keen to get back here another time when the weather and the licencing hours are more favourable.

Very nice pub called Sunday dinner time but could not get any hand pulled after my first pint of Naylor's Bill hopping mad4.2% which was very good told by the young girl behind the bar there was no Barrels tapped and vented yet which is very strange and disappointing for a real ale house

Well ... I only dropped in briefly, but the place was great. Very friendly guys and a wonderful fresh pint. We were not in for long but any concern of a cliquey feeling was rapidly set aside as we covered cricket, rugby and heaven knows what else. Its my first micropub experience and i shall be on the outlook for more ! Good cider , good beer and good company. I shall be back ... but as i live in Devon it will be a while !

Fine micro pub with 4 good quality ales on handpull and 2 ciders on gravity when I visited in early April. Small selection of snacks available. The pub is part of the Carnforth Heritage Centre and all station buildings have been restored. Well worth a visit for the beer.
Note: No music, machines or draft lager. Wine and soft drinks are available.
Car park at front and well placed for train and bus services.
