We were staying locally in Kirtlebridged and were directed to the Station Inn by our B&B Landlady, who did not provide evening meals. The outward appearance and indeed the inside of the Inn don't actually prepare you for the food you will get! The menu is not overly extensive - a good sign in my view as I always feel a large menu will mean a microwave or two and there are the usual pub offerings of scampi, etc, However, we were spoiled for choice even so. I am very fond of pate so had the home made chicken liver pate to start, which was a lovely generous portion, and husband had the breaded mushrooms stuffed with cheddar and leek. We both opted for chips withour mains, which was in my case slow roast belly pork with a cider and cream sauce, and hubby's was steak and ale pie served in a pot with a flaky pastry topping, which looked light as a feather and again, a large portion of meat in the pie. My pork was 2 large pieces with perfectly crisp crackling, and the sauce was just lovely. The chips were hand cooked and again, perfect. A not too large serving of mange tout, carrots and buttery cabbage topped it off. One nice touch was the fresh flowers on every table
Prices - excellent and Chis and Alison, mein hosts were very friendly and made you welcome. if I had one criticism of this lovely little eatery it would be that the lighting in the restaurant was a bit over bright - I just like soft lighting I'm afraid, and as we were the only two in there on that Wednesday evening, it felt very impersonal, as the locals were all in the other bar ! Well done you two for an excellent standard of meal at a price that (if I lived in Kirkpatrick Fleming) would mean we would be regulars
