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

500 metres up the hill on a narrow footway beside a busy road links the station and The Station. Anyway, the original building has been extended (perhaps more than once) to provide a dining room as well as a two-part bar. Outdoor seating is provided to one side on benches beside the car park and also in a beer garden further back where a sizeable children's play area can also be found. With two of the four handpumps in use, the local Bowness Bay Lakeland Blonde (£3.75) was oddly supplemented by Otter Bitter from the other end of the country.

Will Larter left this review about The Station

The Station is unfortunately a five minute walk from Oxenholme station, and there being no footpath for about half the distance, and no street lighting at all, mean that attempting the walk after dark is definitely not recommended. At this time of year, or if you have transport, it's probably worth the trip, for this is quite a pleasant roadside inn. The original rooms are supplemented by a conservatory-type extension on the car park side of the building, which functions as both entrance and dining room.

The original side wall features a fire place with solid fuel stove, with a fish tank next to it, both features being visible from both sides of the former outside wall. One of the fish has a grotesque swallowing motion that could keep me amused for hours. On the bar, by way of contrast, are some fairly mundane beers: Brains Bitter, Hawkshead Bitter, Copper Dragon Best Bitter and Moorhouses Blond Witch. Nothing particularly grim (though I know some people avoid Brains beers like the plague), but nothing to get too excited about either. I had the Hawkshead, and this was very pleasant and went down a treat; so much for my prejudices.

We spent an enjoyable half hour here, though the presence of helium-filled balloons and numerous table reservations suggested a party was soon to begin, so we probably timed it just right. I would be happy to call in again if meeting a train, or waiting for one, but as previously suggested, not after dark.
