Sunday Lunch
Our AA One Rosette restaurant serves food daily and our experienced chefs take great pride in creating beautifully presented, unfussy yet full flavoured food, letting clever combinations of fresh, seasonal ingredients really shine through. Vegetarians are well catered for and many of our dishes can be produced gluten-free; with a little warning dairy-free dishes can be provided too. Our menu changes regularly and whilst we do serve traditional pub classics such as fish & chips and sticky toffee pudding we also serve a la carte dishes to tempt every palate; our seafood dishes are particularly popular. We serve food throughout the pub and children and dogs are welcome.

Lovely relaxed Sunday lunch where we could catch up with family without feeling rushed. Excellent friendly service, request for a weak latte was achieved, which isn't always the case in other places so appreciated

Fab location and excellent food. There is a great range of dishes on the menu to choose from, The Steak and Ale was the best I have ever had, large pieces of steak and tasty filling & gravy. The pub is lovely inside and also has an outdoor dining area and garden which we sat in when we came in the summer.
Great, friendly staff too.
Definitely to be recommended.

A very pleasant meal with attentive service. A little on the noisy side but that is to be expected in a popular eatery. Certainly recommend it for lunch

Each time I have been to the Station the standard has never wavered. The food is always good and superbly presented. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Definitely value for money. Parking is plentiful and even on a wet day it was a pleasure to look out on the garden.

We went to the Station Hotel last Saturday. Our table was booked months ago for 20.00pm. The first course was a little slow coming but our main course didn’t arrive til 21.20. The staff gave us no explanation and were defensive when we asked saying that they had been busy. The food was nothing like as good as we have had there on previous occasions. When challenged the restaurant deducted the cost of one main course as a gesture
We won’t be going back - but suggest that the staff keep guests informed if there is a long delay. And that the restaurant limits its diners to the number of covers that it can handle

Excellent food as always at The Station. Consistency is the key here.

The steak pie and fish and chips were lovely. Nothing left. The F&C are some of the best around in my opinion.

The keep a great pint of Cask Marque real ale too. Always served to perfection.

Staff always friendly and efficient:

We are lucky to have a local like this nearby!

We had a very enjoyable evening at the Station Hotel in Birstwith. The food was very good and all was beautifully cooked and well presented. The service was very slow but the manager apologised as they were suffering a staff shortage that evening but the meal was worth waiting for.

Lovely food and surroundings - friendly staff - the only down side was we waited the best part of an hour for our main course which was a little longer than we had hoped - it was well worth the wait however - beautiful fish and fish pie and delicious ice cream 🙂

Our third visit - for a group of 6 - as usual a warm welcome and friendly,efficient service. We all enjoyed an excellent 3 course lunch from the Market menu which we consider is very good value. All dishes were very tasty and attractively presented. We look forward to our next visit.

I ordered asparagus and wild garlic soup, a favourite of mine. However the waitress brought a bowl of
leek and potato soup, explaining that the asparagus and wild garlic soup was not available. I accepted the leek an potato soup, it was too late to order anything else, and my companion was not having a starter.
I would have liked to have been told that the Asparagus and wild garlic soup was unavailable at the time of ordering, or at least before the leek and potato was brought out to me.
When I raised this matter with our waitress I as told that the kitchen had not informed them of the unavailability , and it was not the fault of the waitresses, who "did not know"
There is obviously a communication problem between your kitchen and serving staff. My problem was that I did not get the soup I ordered, or even a chance to select another starter at the time of ordering.
This did spoil the occasion for me. My main course(Risotto) and my companion's ( curry) were good.
You need to make sure that the restaurant staff are fully aware, at the earliest opportunity, of the availability of the dishes offered.

Had Sunday lunches, although in evening, that were superb. Couldn't fault food, service, or prices. Had no hesitation in going back next day for lunch, which again was faultless.

First time at the Station Hotel for a meal and we were not disappointed. We had an early table at 6.30 so lacked atmosphere when we arrived. Service was very attentive and food was excellent. Waiting time was minimal, the homemade Steak and Ale pie was delicious and thoughtful to have a pot of gravy. Spoilt for choice by the menu and we will definitely return.
