Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Station

The Station was in the Good Beer Guide as recently as 2020, but it no longer stocks a real ale, despite several handpulls. The drinks choice is restricted to John Smith's, Heineken, Amstel, Moretti, Guinness & Strongbow.

Bar staff were very young, but cheerful enough and the drinking environment around the central bar was light and airy.

Just a couple of other customers were rattling around, with there bring notably more delivery drivers and tradesmen appearing than punters.

Despite being called the Station, it's not particularly near the railway station.

Graham Coombs left this review about The Station

Now a Craft Union pub and seems to have turned into more of s sports bar, located at the top of Station Road rather than by the station. This is a modernised main street pub with a student feel, possibly due to the table tennis table occupying a large area. A very light and bright interior has lots of windows and a pastel green colour scheme. Look for the splendid windows at the back for an indication of what it might have been like once. A nice row of 6 handpumps stand on the bar, but sadly only one was in use and produced a very indifferent Landlord (the beer not the publican). Rather disappointing.

This pub has certainly changed since the last time I was here. Previously it was a rather mundane place inside but it is now a much more lively place. Its now a lot brighter and a lot more modern. There is now more real ale choice as there are 5 handpumps. A decent mix of beer styles were on on my visit with pale, blonde, stout and bitter beers on.

Aqualung . left this review about The Station

This old pub seems to have had a fair bit of money thrown at it since the last review making it a rather different place. The darts and pool have gone and I could see no sign of a jukebox although there was a sixties and seventies soundtrack playing. Inside it's a wide rectangular room with extra areas to each side of the central bar. Furnishings are varied with some low tables and chairs, benches and sofas.
I got here just after midday on a rainy October Friday so it wasn't that busy. Food seems to play an important part here.
My ancient North Wales beer guide lists this as an M & B pub selling Brew XI and Mild on electric pumps. Today it has four hand pumps with a fifth devoted to cider. Three beers were available, Adnams Lighthouse, Marstons Wainwright and Conwy California. I went for the California (£3.60) which was in good nick but sadly I forgot all about the CAMRA discount.
You could never call Colwyn Bay a destination ale town so this place and the new micropub around the corner are more than welcome although the ale choice here was a bit disappointing. It's GBG 2018 listed.

Soup Dragon left this review about Central Hotel

This is a rough stone built corner pub and hotel, which looks Victorian, especially with its roof which gives it a Gothic look - with its pitch and finials. It has several dormer windows and Bass etched glass in the main bar. The pub had at least two rooms, but I only saw the bar, which had a pool table and a couple of dart boards. Liverpool FC stuff was on the walls and the TV had the footy on. There was a jukebox, but no music. The decor is cream and coffee with a laminate floor. The service was fine and the clientele mature and local. Beer; usual taps with one real ale - Marston's Pedigree, which was poor at best. A friendly enough pub, but i get the feeling they don't sell much of the real ale.
