“Grubby”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

We stayed just one night whilst walking the Coast to Coast in June, and I'm afraid it has to be the worst place we stayed. The rooms were extremely grubby, and the sheets on our bed were so crumpled looked as if they had been slept in for a week. However, the staff were all friendly, and the pub food and breakfast not too bad - in spite of tables so greasy everything stuck to them.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

I stayed there twice in 2011 (a couple of days in April and a couple of days in October) . I had no problems whilst I was there. It's a pub with three rooms above it. The breakfast was good.It kept you going till lunch. The pub had up to 3 real ales on tap. The evening meals were good. The staff and owners were great. They couldn't do any more for you. The current owners have been there since late 2010. Location was great as it was next to Grosmont railway station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. I'd stay there again.

A really good location, 2 adults and 2 children stayed in the family room-good value and a great breakfast to start the day. Will hopefully stay again soon.

We didn't stay the night so can not rate the rooms. Stopped of here for a bite to eat after a walk to Grosmont. Was plesently surprised. Ok the drink and food isn't cheap but well worth the money. Food was first rate and staff were great. A propper pub, very rarely seen these days!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2009

We stayed in 14 B&B's and lodges, each for one night, during our Coast to Coast walk in autumn 2009. Winner was the Keld Lodge. At the bottom was Pottergate in Richmond. Is it fair to rank a place on the basis of one night? Perhaps not, but first impressions sometimes mean a lot.
The poor Station Tavern. Perfect location next to the Grosmont train station and the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Alas, an ordinary pub, restaurant, and small hotel owned by some brewery chain and leased to a nice couple who tried hard. I'd rank the Station Tavern number 13, but, on reflection, it may not have been THAT bad! It was just so...ordinary. On the other hand, what a delight to sit in the sun at a table on the porch of the Station Tavern with a pint and watch the steam engines come and go. I vacillate. Stay there. Just don't expect much.
