“Really made our stay”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stayed at The Premier Inn at Kendal for three nights and the young lady on reception when asked recommended several real ale and food pubs of which The Station was one. What higher praise can you give than to say we ate here all three nights of our stay. Well kept real ale and delicious food. I had 1. Gammon 2. Scampi 3.Steak Pie and my beloved reported that the lamb shank was outstanding. The staff were really nice and helpful and concerned that you were happy. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Pub for dinner”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

A pub with about 3 or 4 different rooms - lounge, bar area and restaurant at least

The restaurant has table service and we were all (8 of us) pleased with our choice of dishes - large portions, well cooked with a menu a bit more varied than standard pub faire

There was also plenty of beer to keep one settled and a taxi back into more central Kendal (for want of a better term for it!) isn't hard to arrange

“Nice as a one off”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The food adults food was nice though the children's food wasn't very good. Child's burger was a burnt lump of meat between a dry bun. The tables were really sticky. The service left us a bit disappointed as well, we were left for an hour before we had chance to order and we asked them not the other way round. It wasn't busy either.

“disappointed”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

we had fish, chips and peas. The fish was mostly batter which was over cooked with very thin fish inside. The chips were made with awful potatoes and inedible. The mushy peas were of inferior quality and tasted awful. When I complained on paying the bill there was no offer made to reduce the bill for food I could not eat. Total waste of time and money.
