EBG Rating:
Quality of Drinks
Various real ales from local and regional breweries. Reasonably well stocked bar.
Attracting stone cottage by the railway tracks. Inside, vintage signage evoking the golden age of rail in a surprisingly natural and organic feeling pub layout. Surprisingly homely for a station bar.
A mixture of stalwarts and the predictable transient trade you will get from a train station pub.
Outdoor seating, snacks including amusing crisp butty menu.
Value For Money
Standard, perhaps a little higher than average for the area.
