Real Ale Ray left this review about The Little R'Ale House

A Grade II listed building built in 1857 and known as the Ammo room, as it was used to store small explosive devices that were placed on the railway tracks to warn railway workers a train was approaching. There is also a picture near the front bar showing the 1898 railway disaster, where a platform trolley ran off the platform and derailed the Manchester Express.
We visited here on a Friday lunchtime and found eight alers from Nottingham enjoying the beer. The owner and his wife were friendly and chatty and make visitors very welcome. Their ales were served from stillage along the back of the bar. Three ales on our visit, Potbelly Pygmalion, Potbelly Beijing Black and Papworth Big Slur. I went for the Papworth, which was a 5% red ale, which I really got the taste for. The pub had railway memorabilia and a collection of model trains around the tops of the walls along shelving.

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

New micro-pub housed in a small detached building on Platform 1 (known locally as the 'Ammo Room'). Very basic furniture and limited decor, with the focus being the twin-rack stillage partly behind the compact counter. Four real ales on gravity when I stopped by - Oldershaw Heavenly Blonde, XT Pacific Red, Abbeydale Baby Black Mass and White Park Oast House (£3.40).
