Commuters in Hebden Bridge can beat those rush-hour blues by visiting a new bar that has opened at the station.

The Parcel Office Buffet Bar has been opened by Natalie McDonnell and Paul Flowers and is open between 3pm and 9.30pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The couple have moved from careers in manufacturing and furniture restoring to running the bar, which opened last week.

Natalie said: “We have taken over the bar from a member of the Real Cider Company but will continue providing organic local ales and real ciders.

“We had a live acoustic artist last week, which is something we want to keep doing as I think that’s something that’s missing in Hebden Bridge.

“We’re also looking at hosting jamming sessions on Friday evenings using local musicians to help promote local talent.”
