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 Bread & Butter from Vocation (£3.30), Neepsend Jotun and Torrid Brewing's Grubby Basford porter. Well worth a visit if changing trains at Doncaster.

One small room with five craft and three cask ales (one @ 7.00% ABV). Certainly worth a stop off if you are between trains.

Excellent use of an old station buffet, which has been turned into a speciality alehouse. The superb tiling works well, while a slightly basic bar has been added dispensing 3 cask and 5 keg craft beers, plus bottles and cans. The room is not large, holding a few tables and some stools round the edges, but there is an 'outdoor' area on the platform, although plastic glasses are required and it is still a no-smoking area. The cask ales on this visit were Geeves Stouty McStoutface, Chin Chin Route 101 and Wishbone Eezee. Certainly worth changing trains for, but you may well miss your connection. Note however that the door is apparently locked 30 mins before closing, which might explain the previous reviewer's problem.
