We are please to announce the re-opening of the Jubilee Refreshment Rooms on Wednesday, 23rd November 2022. 


Situated on the forecourt of Sowerby Bridge Railway Station, The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms are operated by two railway enthusiasts, Andrew and Chris Wright, who have re-created the type of Station Refreshment Rooms that would have been available during the golden age of rail travel.

The building that houses the Jubilee Refreshment Rooms was originally one wing of a much larger station building that was built by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Company in 1876. The rest of the station was demolished in the late 1970s following a fire. Part of the surviving wing was last used as a ticket office until 1983 and another part was used by permanent way staff until 1997.


The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms are a popular meeting place for both commuters and transport enthusiasts and hosts many events ranging from whisky tastings to local history talks.

Hot and cold snacks are served most days, and free Wi-Fi is available for customers' use.

The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms offers a variety of cakes, a choice of Teas, a range of Coffees, Hot Chocolate, Fruit Juices, Soft Drinks and other Light Refreshments.
