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

Micro-pub and bottle shop in a narrow terraced unit, but additional seating can be found up a few steps beyond the compact bar. Bright, modern, canteen-style furniture, limited decoration apart from the display shelves at the front but rather disconcerting paintwork (and some interesting pictures) further back. Up to ten craft keg beers on tap, plus a couple of real ales on handpump: Fyne Ales Jarl (£4.00, and a bit disappointing) and Saltaire's Chocoholic.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Station Hop

This was a completely different set up compared to Fred's Ale House, which is only a couple of minutes walk down the road. This micro was very bohemian in style, with a very laidback barmaid and the music being played was some transcidental track and would have been more fitting for a meditation class. The customer base in here was also quite different as the majority of them were hipster types calling in to try their range of ten keg beers and not really engaging in much conversation with other fellow drinkers.
Two ales on handpump, so we went for the Thirst Class Brewery Just One More Thing, which was excellent and only brewed a short distance away.
This micro was a former solicitors office and previously a hairdressers for twenty years. The layout consisted of a front room, with bar and a display of various cans and bottles displayed on shelving opposite the bar and a sign reading corkage £1. The bar had a pine top counter with green and white concentric patterned tile around the bar front. The walls were painted in dark blue and white and the aluminium high stools were all in different colours. The back room was finished in green and white painted walls and a further small seating area near the back door was finished in orange and white. At weekends they usually have a pop up street food stall out in the yard, unfortunately for us it was cancelled due to the windy weather.
