Leonard Wilfred Davies, born 19 December 1906, started a butcher's dynasty now four generations old. His butchers typical cheeky sense of humour now lives on through his grandchildren along with his knowledge of butchery.

In 1997 Leonard’s grandson Richard opened The Station Inn, which quickly generated a great reputation for quality steak. With Richard’s son, Ben’s passion and expertise as Head Chef and Butcher, The Station’s dining experience is a true reflection of the families deep passion for serving amazing steak.

20 years on from opening The Station a major upgrade has taken place, which at its core aims to celebrate the families heritage and knowledge of meat. In order to identify your exact preferences the chefs help you choose the best cut of beef to cook for dinner. It makes for an unforgettable ‘butchery and dining’ experience.

    Really nice layout and ambiance in The Station Inn and we’d definitely go back. Food was good and a nice variety (other than the peas which had an odd taste and we mentioned this) - puddings were great. The only disappointment was when we popped back later for some tea after a walk, the teapots were half full which we thought was a tad stingy. All in all though a nice experience and we’d go back.

    This is the third time we have visited the Station Inn on a Friday night for their Butcher's Night. We haven't been disappointed and would recommend a visit to anyone

    One of the best meals I’ve eaten in the area. Staff were friendly and helpful from the off. Tables are a nice distance apart. The food itself was incredible. We had a steak and a mixed grill. Meat quality was top tier, and perfectly cooked and the amount you got for the price was really good. Would absolutely recommend

    Experience on a Friday night where the butcher cuts your meat in front of you and cooks it made it extra special. Service was great, and food was amazing! Will definitely come again.

    Should have been a special night and had been recommended to go to the Station for their steaks but turned out to be a disappointment. We were welcomed and shown to our table quite quickly and noticed that the area we sat in was busy but nobody was eating so expected a wait but in all fairness food started coming out and our order was taken. I ordered the 12oz sirloin rare and my partner the 12oz ribeye medium rare and when the meals came both looked delicious but my partner's ribeye was also rare so we looked round for someone to tell and no-one was about even though the other diners had been asked if their meals were fine..As his steak was tasty he ate.most of it but it really spoilt the night as l could see he was struggling. We had finished eating for quite a while when a waitress came to clear our table and asked if we would like dessert so l said we wouldn't be staying as nobody had bothered to check our meal and could we have the bill She apologised and said she would inform the chef and l expected perhaps a reduction on the bill but no so we reluctantly paid and left and won't be returning.
