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.

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.
