Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Draughtsman Alehouse

Former station buffet housed in a small square room with attractive tiling on the lower third of the side walls and a compact counter at the far end. Cleverly named, best appreciated with the landlord glimpsing at the engineering drawings of steam engines as he pours your pint. Also has a small 'outdoor' area under the Platform 3b canopy, although you will need a plastic 'glass' if you plan to sit out there. With three handpumps in use, I found Abbeydale's Pine Range, Neepsend Alphita (£3.60) and Made in the Shade from Track. Well worth a visit if changing trains at Doncaster.

Unusually for a station pub, this pub is located on one of the central platforms at Doncaster station. So, you can't access if from the outside of the station. Nevertheless, there are no ticket barriers at the station. So, you can access the bar easily without having to have a train ticket. Although when I walked down the steps to get to platform 3, I did notice some ticket inspectors checking tickets at the top of the steps opposite. So, I'm not quite sure how you get round that!

The former buffet bar is still very nicely decorated with tiling. It's very small inside, with only a handful of tables. Despite trade mainly being of a transient variety, many of the tables had reserved signs on them, which seemed a little odd.

The bar still has its screens as relics of the Covid era. 3 real ales are dispensed. Yesterday, these were Shiny Cinnabun Swirl, Milestone West Coast IPA & Wilde Child Excluding Preconception. Craft beers listed were Wild Beer Millionaire, North Double Transmission & Open Space, The Kernel Pale Ale & Pohjala Suvila. Although, I did see somebody try to order one of the North beers, only to be told it had just run out.

An interesting addition to the Doncaster pub scene. My Cinnabun Swirl was also enjoyable and in good condition.

Odder than usual drinking experience, covid regs still being over applied, big screens across the counter which is fine if the remaining serving area isn’t full of bar blockers... grrr. Otherwise such a good place and handy for the trains. Fecking cold outside but some choose to drink on the platform, train spotters no doubt.
