Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Ale Station

You can do quite a crawl of micropubs in Chorley. This was our final one and probably my least favourite of them all, possibly because it didn't quite live up to the high expectations I had set for it, especially after visiting the other micropubs the town had to offer.

The interior is reasonably narrow and gets quite dark towards the rear. Seating was also available at the front on the pavement.

Apparently, up to 9 real ales can be available. However, on this occasion, there were only 5 - Hawkshead Windermere Pale, Abbeydale Deception & Speculation, Acorn Barnsley Bitter & Settle Main Line Bitter. It would have been nice to have tried a dark beer, but I eventually chose the Speculation. Ciders were Sandford Orchards Devon Red & Lilley's Mango.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ale Station

Although it looks like it is housed in a railway arch, and despite being very close to the station, it's not. However, at least externally, it still has that kind of appearance, although the semi-modern furniture is slightly at odds with its micro-pub sensibility. With seven of nine handpumps in use, my pint of Dark Mild (from a brewery whose name I forgot to note, £3.00) proved a good choice from the various styles of real ale offered.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Ale Station

Another good addition to Chorley's micropub scene, with this one being the largest. The interior had a long rectangular shaped room with an office type suspended ceiling throughout. The bar area was found midway down the left hand side and had a white painted front with green glazed tiles fixed onto the panels. There was also a wood burning stove at the rear of the pub. Six handpumps on the bar, so we went for the Wily Fox Crafty Fox, which was a good session ale and we also tried the Loweswater Gold. The service in here was fast and efficient, even though the pub was busy and the staff were all very smiley and welcoming.
