Steve C left this review about The Trackside

The Trackside is located within Bury Bolton Street Station on the East Lancashire Railway. Located on the right wall is a bar that supports 12 hand pumps for drawing real ale and cider. I went for a pint of J W Lees, which was very good. The many pump clips lined along the roof beams were an indication of ever-changing beer choice. There was some low background music playing, but no other distractions such as a television. It was cold and rainy during my visit, so I didn’t get to sit out on the platform, however I was lucky enough to see a steam train pass. I liked it in here and would definitely recommend to others.

Unfortunately no sign of any steam locos on our visit, still the beer was good. We went for the Boilerhouse Craft Pale at £2.50 a pint which was in good condition. I don't think you can go far wrong with the beers in here as the place is always busy, so the turn over of beer must be quite rapid. The pub had a choice of 12 ales on handpump and the place also serves some food.

I agree that this is the pub that justifies a visit to Bury. It's a bit of a shed like building alongside the East Lancs Railway platforms. It has a red and black tiled floor and the shed joists are covered with pump clips.
There are now 12 hand pumps that were all going on my Friday afternoon visit with beers from Saltaire, Squawk, Moorhouse and numerous others. I went for the Rammy Craft Mango Beach (£3.50) which was in good nick.
Once again the prezzy railway brigade have come up with a real winner.
