A rather basic, dated and rather dull pub near the main station. Naturally it has a Railway theme with a few photos of steam locomotives and Doncaster station of yesteryear but the efforts do seem a little underwhelming. The main bar contains 2 large arcs of built in seating with a sports based TV in the corner whilst at the rear is a pool and darts area. The 3 ales on offer were disappointing and unadventurous – John Smiths, John Smiths Magnet and Tetley. That said I have never had Magnet before although I wish I could still say the same. Ironically the makeshift pump clip consisted of an old beer mat sellotaped onto a Deuchers clip which would have been a far more worthwhile pint. Not too much of interest in the general scheme of things but it was friendly enough and they have probably the smallest barman this side of the Hobbit House in Manila. The sort of pub that is handy for a missed train but that's really about it
