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.

As has been noted, this is located on Platform 3b at the station. Prior to double checking the address I had been expecting to find it on the concourse with the shops. Unfortunately when I arrived the door appeared to be locked, with a number pad on the door. Not sure what the deal is here, whether you have to be let in or whether they were closed (though I did spot a handful of people crowded round the bar). In any event I decided not to hang around and tried elsewhere. I would be willing to try again another time.

I thought about coming in here on arrival at Doncaster but decided not to as it looked busy. It's set in a former buffet bar and is just a square room with no TVs or other distractions but there is a quiet music track playing that I thought might be for the benefit of the busy bar staff. As noted below there is an enclosed area outside where only plastic glasses are allowed. I got here just after 18:00 on a Saturday and managed to find a seat inside.
The three hand pumps had Tiny Rebel Cwtch & Stay Puft and Wilde Child Outside The Box. I went for the Wilde Child beer and the Stay Puft (both £3.90) which were in good nick but slightly warm.
I thought this place was good but not great. The high prices may well be down to National Rail rents and Doncaster is a busy station. I much prefer places like this on quieter stations. I still wish it well but it seems to have already taken off.
