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

Real ale pub with a good reputation, very handily located as the name would suggest, and one that I have been meaning to visit for ages (having walked past it numerous times en route to somewhere else...). Anyway, it retains a twin-bar layout, with the front one highly visible through the large windows. The rear bar has more of an alehouse look - although the music was at slightly more than background level - and there is a large patio beer garden at the back (illuminated at night, but certainly not the weather to try that out on my visit). Beer-wise, I was perhaps a bit unlucky because the four handpumps on the rear counter were being prepared for a Fownes Brewery takeover the following night, and one of the other four at the front - Holden's Golden Glow - had just gone off and was having its pipes cleaned (mildly annoying, but a good sign that quality is important here). That left the regular Landlord, Purity Pure Gold and Proper Job (£3.45).

Busy pub close to the station with two rooms served via a central bar. Active pub with quiz, music and comedy nights plus an upstairs function room. Beers on the bar were Oakham JHB, Holdens Golden Glow and Marstons 61 Deep which we chose and it was fine. Attractive garden at the rear.

An attractive pub with a striking mural on the end wall beyond which is situated the entrance just a few steps from the station platform. This was the obvious choice for our last couple of pints before the train home however it was seriously busy on Saturday evening, we were lucky to grab a solitary high table. I imagine many of the punters were loading up here before heading into Birmingham for the night. Two rooms which link together to the rear, both served by a central bar. Lots of railway memorabilia including some nice old regional maps pre Beeching. One wall has some butterfly patterned wallpaper.
Stairs lead up to a signed function room and there is a garden somewhere but I didn't investigate either.
Four beers on handpump, Oakham Citra, Marston's 61 Deep, Shipyard Island IPA and Holden's Golden Glow which unfortunately went. The beers were all very tightly sparklered making them difficult to pour and causing quite a lot of wastage. There really is no need and the couple of pints of Citra I had tasted totally different to normal as a result. Not a bad pub nevertheless.
