Description: Real Ale, Real Cider, Real Food, Real Fires, Real People, Real Passion...Real Pub. Situated in the original waiting room, on Platform 2, of Dewsbury train station The West Riding was the first member of the beerhouses family, back in 1994, its' our flag ship pub, it's success and experience has been passed on to the other four pubs in the group... Inviting, friendly, approachable staff and customers, facilitating an inkling that after one visit, you're pretty much a regular and will be welcomed back fondly with open arms and a big grin! We've a top notch selection of ale from local and countrywide breweries, kept to Cask Marque quality standards. Beautiful outer architecture, enhanced by cascading ivy on the front of the building. Inside a three room set up with quirky signs and pictures adorning the walls, giving a weary traveller a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The West Riding Refreshment Rooms is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.

“Good Selection of Real Ales”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

I recently stopped in here at the West Riding whilst waiting for a train. It is a well known real ale pub on the Ale Trail.
I called in around lunch time and the bar area wasn't too busy. There are a good selection of real ales to choose from; I opted for a pint of Timothy Taylors as it looked like the local beer was having a barrel change as I ordered.
It's just a shame I had a train to catch, otherwise I could quite easily have spent another couple of hours in here sampling a few more of the beers.

a real ale lovely pub - often marred by massive groups of folk on the beer trail.
Has lots of character for a train waiting room.

“Takes all sorts to make a world”

Great pub full of characters. Never seen any trouble in this 'ale trail' pub.
Fab selection of ales and even sell bottles of prosecco for £13 bargain!
