Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The pub owners are super lovely and accommodating. On my last visit my order got mixed up and instantly fixed it but allowed my grandad to have the meal that they'd written down in error as an apology. Fantastic service food is always hot, on...time and beautifully served. Will visit as often as I can!More

Excellent food at reasonable prices, friendly people and the nostalgia of a railway carriage - thoroughly enjoyed it.

I just love this place. Nev and Debbie are hostesses with the mostess! The pub is warm, cosy, quirky, friendly with SO many weird and wonderful items all around to look at. The carriage is beautiful and a really lovely place for a meal out,...amazing atmosphere, food was fantastic and good size portions and made a really special evening in a unique environment. The rooms are basic but comfortable and as a disabled person I had the best night sleep in ages in a very comfy bed. I was very impressed with the amount of tea and coffee sachets in the room, more than enough for someone like me who drinks a LOT of tea!. Shower was good and room was warm and cosy. Thanks for a great time.More

Together with my wife we visited the old station inn. An unexpected visit, near by our campsite. We had a wonderfull meeting with other visitors. But as well the pub and restaurant, so nice and with a positive energy. The reason: Debby and her husband!...Friendly, warm and open for their guests. The next evening we went back to enjoy our diner. In one word: fantastic. As well the desert, sitting in an old train carriage. Our advise: come, try and have the experience! Regards, Anneke and JP from Holland.More

A unique setting for a wonderful meal. Myself and four friends arranged for an evening meal in this venue of a once railway carriage now offering a spacious and comfortable dining setting. The menu is varied and full of choices for any appetite. Service and...food is faultless with a good measure of attention and humour. We really liked the presentation of each of our dishes with the choice of plates to enhance our particular menu choice. Cannot recommend the Old Station Inn highly enough.More

The is a wonderful quirky country pub, with a pair of owners totally committed to complete customer satisfaction. Dinner was served in an old converted railway carriage filled with relevant antiques and memorabilia…. Food was superb with a wide choice and freshly prepared, and served...in a cheerfully friendly way. Likewise a wide choice of wines at very reasonable prices I was so surprised at this refreshing experience that I had to write a glowing review….More

I was invited here by a very good friend, who said, wait until you see this... I will not give away spoilers. I drove, and there was an anxious moment when I was told to avert my gaze to keep the surprise. When I entered,...(fnarr, fnarr, for those that know!) I thought the surprise was the real traditional pub, with quirky knick-knacks all around, board and puzzle games everywhere (I am champion snakes and ladders King, but keep that sssh between you and I) I was already spellbound. Then I was taken to the dining area. You'll see. Food, too plentiful and amazing, the atmosphere topped it, as did all the super friendly staff and owners. Put it on your bucket list and thank me later. xxMore

What a nice find! We happened across this place randomly as we were driving and sat in the carriage area. Our 2 year old loves the experience. The staff were so friendly and the atmosphere in the carriage was such a lovely experience. The food...was nice too, husband and I had the chicken pie. I like that it came with lots of nice fresh vegetables. We would love to come back againMore
