What can I say - expensive crap service that you expect in a third word country- very poor - get your trains in order - you’re just arrogant that you think we should all put up with your inadequate service - come the revolution ☝️😡

Well worth experiencing.... We did Stalybridge to Leeds, returned the following day. There were a couple of groups of people on the same timing as us - but not in anyway busy. Buffet Bar in Stalybridge had amazing looking pies / pasties. We ate in...More

First time doing Real Ale Trail last weekend and really enjoyed it. It's a good laugh and something different, all the pubs are old fashioned type pubs. Train run every hour which is really good so you can have 1 or 2 drinks in each...More

Used to really enjoy this, but now has become overrun by drunk, shouty middle aged women and fancy dress 'lad' idiots. It's a real shame. Oh, and Dewsbury is the worst place on the planet.

Great for a large group trip out. Get on and off where you want and follow the crowds to the pubs. Some lovely pubs at slaithwaite and marsden. Used by public for general commute and feel sorry for any non pub crawl passengers, especially on...More

I'm a bit of an old hand at doing this "pub crawl". I've seen it develop from its intended purpose as a way of getting between some excellent boozers(and booze) through its popularity surge after a few high profile advertisements to its logical conclusion as...More
