THE DRAUGHTSMAN ALEHOUSE
Where Great Minds Drink Alike...
The Draughtsman Alehouse is Doncaster's First Railway Alehouse, located on Platform 3b of Doncaster Railway Station. The former Victorian buffet room, which has stood empty for 18 years has been lovingly restored to show off many of its original features.
In this family run business we have combined our passion of Doncaster's history & heritage with our love for beer brewed locally, nationally and internationally, coupled with our wide range of locally sourced gins, wines, hot drinks and snacks. What better place to start or end your journey?
