Carl Urmston left this review about Station Freehouse

Imposing ex-Spoons, adequately described below. It looks massive and feels even bigger on the inside, with a lot to admire from an architectural point of view- curved glass and wood. Sadly, it no longer seems to sell real ale, with just national kegs for sale. Emphasis on live sport. Was doing a brisk trade on a cold Saturday afternoon. It's a great building and I enjoyed my visit, would be even better if they could put a couple of handpumps back on, but I doubt there's much demand for it.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Station Freehouse

Landmark building opposite Nelson's railway / bus interchange. Vast interior, with a large curved bar and various lounges, pool room, etc. I don't know whether the higher levels are still in use, but one can imagine all sorts of former function rooms and hotel bedrooms up there. Three of four handpumps working when I visited, offering two Moorhouses beers - Dr Rudi and Pure Witch (£1.95) plus Sun Bear from Old Bear Brewery. This must really have been quite a place in its heyday, so hopefully its latest incarnation will thrive.

Large pub near to the town centre full of local characters.I called in one Saturday lunchtime and struggled to find a seat,i soon realised why when i bought a pint of Tetley Smooth at £1.36 a pint.
