ORIGINAL REVIEW Jan 2014
This place started life as the station newsagents,but over the years has expanded into a coffee shop,off licence and now has a small bar to the left of the shop with a drinking ledge and some bar stools.Les and his family run the place and there is a lot of banter with the regular commuters.There is a single keg tap for Peroni (£4.40 pp),and some bottled beer to choose from ,but no real ale.Les stays open until around 7.45pm but wont chase you out if you have already started drinking,so some sessions may get extended.There will always be a warm welcome from behind the modest bar,and there is a regular stream of customers for all the different services on offer.Handy if waiting for a train,or desperate for a beer after a hard day at work.

March 2018

There are regularly two pins of Locale on the counter,3 Brewers of St Albans Golden English Ale and New River Five Inch Drop on my last visit,so IMHO this now qualifies as a micropub.The bottle selection has improved,again with beer from many local micro brewers.A drinking shelf gives seating for 6 on bar stools.Whether you would want something to drink when the kiosk first opens around 6am is debateable,but it stays open until 8pm during the week,until 6pm on Saturdays and until 3pm on Sundays.The availability of real ale is on a "once it's gone,it's gone "basis so you maybe unlucky,although there will always be draught Peroni or some bottles to consume.

UPDATE

No longer offering real ale but the keg options are of interest as are the cans.

The station newsagent has enterprisingly expanded to include a cafe and small bar alongside the shop counter, with a shelf and stools for drinkers. A few keg taps offer unusual craft and cider, while there is a large selection of tins and bottles from far and wide. A stillage made from scaffold tube stands at the front which normally holds a changing pin of real ale but sadly this is out of use at present due to Covid affecting footfall. With the former pub opposite having been replaced by housing, this is a really useful thing to have at the station.
