Malden man left this review about The Station

A busy and lively town pub opposite the rail and bus station, the exterior still retains an appearance of former grandeur which is nowadays a façade only. Inside has been effectively opened out with the bar in the central area on a back wall with the pub expanding to either side. Stained glass upper windows plus a similar internal ceiling light are of interest as are the coloured tiled squares in the floor in front of the bar. I also noticed a vintage clock with the town's name misspelt with a "g" replacing the "c", this is likely to be on display for this reason, the erroneous spelling being a well known irritant to townsfolk.
A side room with a fully glazed wall with doors facing a patio drinking area has a pool table and I believe there is a dart board too but I didn't see it. A number of TVs were showing the Saturday lunchtime live football.
Theakstons XB and Old Peculiar on with one pump unclipped.

An architectural delight, coloured glass, pediments and such like, betraying former days of glory for this hotel. There is a patio at the back. The interior of the pub has been ripped out making one large room effectively. TVs showing sport were on one side with a dart board. The music was loud, then a singer came on. Service was functional and the clientele younger - it was very busy. Beer: usual tap stuff with Murphy's (OK) and a decent enough Theakston's Old Peculiar. One for the locals.
