Very disappointed as it is one of our local eating establishments and would use it more often if we had had a better experience. My son went to the bar to let them know we had arrived after booking a table, the woman just stared at him then quite abruptly said "name" then told us where our table was. I... More

While we staying outside the center we have not much option, either we drove to the center or just walk 2 minutes from where we stay. The Station Inn is a hotel, bar and restaurant and right next door to our guesthouse. We came around 7pm and we don't know that they have two entrance - one at the back... More

on a quiet mid week evening one was hoping for better!! A starter of GARLIC mushrooms served with a very bland luke warm sauce MINUS any shred of garlic .A main course of scampi and chunky chips , the chips were hard ( probably from over cooking them) and the scampi rubbery. The accompanying salad had clearly been made a... More

Went for Sunday lunch and had turkey as they did not offer chicken, food was okay and cooked just right but not enough for the price. Was expecting so much more from the main meal. Pudding was absolutely spot on, sticky toffee pudding with ice cream defiantly filled me up. I would recommend.

Visited today with my wife, the food took a very long time to arrive and my order was mixed up. However the girl waiting the table was very polite and professional and sorted the issue quickly.

I had looked at the menu on line prior to visiting and there are several different items and some prices that are different to the actual menu available. There is actually a lot more on offer, including gluten free items, and there are daily specials on the blackboard. When we visited there seemed to be a large group spread over... More

Had a meal here with friends & chose the Festive menu. Sorry to say that the soup (vegetable and red lentil) was over salted and over seasoned, I left most of it. The main course of turkey and trimmings was hot with a good portion of meat and a selection of vegetables and was tasty. The sticky toffee pudding came... More
