Station Tavern, EN3 7SG
- 257 Green Street, EN3 7SG
- from 11am every day
It's a pretty standard chain pub, with traditional decor and food served all day. The interior is a single reasonably-sized room, with a pool table at one end flanked by high tables, chairs, and banquettes; the rest of the pub has normal-height seating. Beyond the pool table a door leads out to a small fenced-off patio with parasol-sheltered picnic benches, and there are more picnic benches out the front on the pavement and out the back next to the car park.
Kake and friend visited on a Thursday afternoon in September 2013. A handpump on the bar was clipped for Abbot Ale; they also had Ruddles Best and John Smith Extra Smooth on keg. A pint of lime and soda was 40p; unusually, they charge for this by the number of shots of cordial (20p each), and you can choose how many you want (soda is free). A bottle of Kopparberg Pear was £3.85.
According to a sign seen outside in September 2013, food is served noon-8pm every day.
Accessibility: A tiny step to get in. Step-free to the bar, seating area (including pool table), and toilets once you're in. There is an accessible toilet. The cubicles in the ladies' are very small and quite a squeeze to get into. The pub has a car park.
