Steve C left this review about Station Hotel

The Station Hotel is aptly named as it is located across the road from Preston Park Railway Station. There were only three other customers when I visited early on Saturday evening a couple of weeks ago, but a very drunk local divulged to me that it had been busier during the day. He also let on that this pub is more popular with afternoon drinkers and it usually empties out during the evening, which I would expect from a station pub. There are a couple of picnic tables out the front and the A board informs readers that there is a quiz from 21:00 on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays. The residents of Preston must be a clever bunch!
The interior of the pub is L shaped with a pool table to the left and a dartboard to the far right. The plasma screen was off, but Sky Sports is shown when football is being played. There was some music playing in the background and the random nature would suggest a jukebox, but I didn’t note it. The bar is stocked with standard draught and supports six hand pumps that were drawing Harvey’s Best (x2), Landlord, Old Speckled Hen, Cottage Brewery’s Between the Posts and Heritage cider.

I quite liked it in here as the barmaid was very friendly and there was a good atmosphere even though very quiet. This place is a bit out of the way for non-locals and I wouldn’t get off the train especially to visit, but as railway station pubs go this is one of the better ones.
