Graham Coombs left this review about The Station

A Greene King community pub which is a focal point in this little-known suburb. A handsome building with mullioned windows, it has of course been opened out internally and given a not unpleasant modern facelift. There are multiple areas arranged around a central bar, with mainly traditional furnishings apart from a few benched tables. There are several sports TVs placed around, with darts and pinball off to one side but no pool table, unless it had been cleared out for Christmas. Various entertainments are provided on different nights. Outside there are tables on a forecourt patio area and a separate function room with its own entrance at the back. Draughts beers were IPA and Abbot, TEA and Rocking Rudolph (it being Christmas), in very drinkable form with Cask Marque accreditation. Friendly service and a welcoming feel top off this rather good pub.

A routine suburban pub well described below which makes a good stab at being all things to all people. A rather diminished beer range when we called, just Pride and Doom Bar but service was with a smile. The extensive seating out on the front terrace would make a pleasant place to watch the goings on in the summer

This is a large prominent pub at the end of Stoneleigh's shopping parade, immediately adjacent to the station. The Tudor exterior and huge gothic chimneys make the pub appear older than it is likely to be, which would be the early 30's when the suburb was developed although it could be slightly earlier if built due to the railway coming through. Some of the original Truman's signage remains externally over a corner door.
Internally the pub has been pretty much knocked through into one huge U-shaped space with the bar central. Most of the fixtures and fittings are now of course new and without merit but I suspect the dado and picture rails, possibly some grape and vine mouldings on a beam plus the lower wall embossed finish could just be original.
Mostly carpeted and with mixed if smart seating thanks to a recent makeover, a couple of areas are slightly raised, the overall feel being clean and comfortable if a little bland. Decor has the usual Barras B&W photos of the area but include a couple of the pub from 1955 and 1960. The 1955 one is especially good and shows all the Truman's badging. Additionally I spotted a couple of caricatures of Michaela Strachan and one Jimmy Page, both of whom have rather marginal connections to the area. These are situated in the return area to the left which houses a pool table and dartboard. Naturally for a pub of this type several TVs are dotted around.
On the bar were four handpumps, offering Marston's EPA, Doom Bar, Surrey Hills Shere Drop (£3.25) and Oxfordshire Ales Uncle Scrooge. To me a decent choice for a backwater suburban pub.
It is what it is, a chain pub with all that entails, big menus, food deals and various forms of nightly entertainment but it wasn't too bad either I thought. Oh, and the grapple machine has survived the makeover, phew!
