Disappointed
Sep 2021 • Friends
Customer Service abysmal.
Turned up Sunday 19th at around 15:00.
Owner was stood in the doorway with his arms folded. Would not let us in because of our dog and said ‘you’re not coming in with that!’ Embarrassing.
Will not be visiting again.
This place needs some customer service training. Pronto.

Walked half an hour to get here and refused entry as had my well behaved dog with me. Tried to explain to owner we had come a long way and he just shrugged his shoulders!!
Won’t be going there again

Call into Beer Station yesterday. I presume person serving was the owner as he was very rude I decided not to have a drink so went back Beer Den on Duke Street totally different atmosphere. So won't be going back to Beer Station again

Every time I visit Formby from down south visiting the beer station is a must!
The members of staff are so friendly and welcoming. The range and price of drinks is amazing. Atmosphere is lovely too!

Great atmostphere except when it is packed to the rafters which is quite often

This is a great place to visit when you just fancy to nip out and have a drink and a natter. Everyone is very friendly and beers are good to try. It is rarely empty and when several parties are incumbent, the place is great. On occasions it has been standing room only, very loud and then extremely uncomfortable, time to leave. Fortunately it is usually the former, not the latter.

Don’t miss out on the fantastic stout !
Dec 2019 • Friends
We going to spend the weekend with our friends who live in Ainsdale. They took us on a fabulous walk through the pinewood forests and along the beach at Formby. We ended up at the Beer Station and had some exciting fabulous beers.

The stout was absolutely sublime
The beer was simply delicious. All from local breweries , as well as the micro brewery on site

The Rioja was a triumph. We had lots of lovely snacks and thoroughly recommend the local chilli flavoured ones

We had a very tired whippet with us , who was made to feel very welcome. The landlord is a very welcoming chap who knows his stuff about beer

It’s opposite the station and also a great fish and chip shop. Very close to some fantastic walks. What a perfect place for a perfect pint ! Unfussy, warm, no music or TV screens. It does what it says on the tin. It’s a beer station!

Like being in someone's front room. Nice and clean, friendly staff and great selection of beers. Loved the chocolate stout. Right next to the station, so can watch the trains and know when the leave to catch your train.

Great to stop off for a little drink after walking the dog in the pinewoods! The atmosphere is friendly and chilled and the staff (particulary Ian) very nice. Lovely casks available I recommend the scrumpy cider!
