See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Extended and transformed in early 2010s by a million-pound scheme into a pub-cum-eaterie called P5 or Platform 5 (as it is adjacent to the railway station's Platform 4). Little did the marketeers know that in the 1960s, steam engine drivers from the adjacent station yard also referred to the Junction as Platform 5! This latest transformation resulted in the loss of the vault to the right of the bar from the original days; however there are still plenty of opportunities for those who just want to drink. The bar remains central to the pub and has been extended on one side. Various handpumps are located along the length of the bar and dispense a changing range of Holts beers as well as one or two from Bootleg. There is also a small selection of bottled beers, mostly foreign. The main eating areas, which have been extended but still retain distinct spaces, are to the left of the entrance although food can be eaten anywhere. Decor is very modern; a mixture of high and conventional tables can be found in all areas along with a variety of chairs ranging from stools to sofas. Old railway pictures and memorabilia can be found on the walls and a useful feature is a real time train departure screen for the station. Outside the pub has a multi-level beer garden facing the station, and a large car park. Take care when passing the dessert cabinet; it's very tempting and cakes can be taken away!
