Visited for first time this Sunday, after hearing a couple of good reports. We had the two course carvery lunch. I had the roast beef and my husband had the lamb. This was accompanied by a HUGE selection of veg. Also, yorkshire pudding, roast and new baby potatoes. You then help yourself to the veg. I had mashed turnip, cauliflower with cheese sauce, peas and carrots. Also on offer was cabbage and ratatouille. We finally decided on our sweet, as the choice was huge. My husband had Vanilla and Honey Cheesecake with brandy ice cream, which was as light as a feather, and I had a trio of flavoured ice creams, with pistachio, raspberry creme brulee, and vanilla. There was about 8 or 9 to choose from. It was a hard choice, as rhubarb, Belgian Chocolate and strawberry to choose from as well as 3 or 4 sorbets. The rest of the sweet menu was one of the nicest I have ever had to ponder over. The starter menu was also vast and very different, including a lot of seafood dishes. We will be trying that one next trip. The 2 course lunch was £13.95 or the three course meal was £15.95, although there is no way either of us could have managed all that !!! The food was very impressive and the staff were very pleasant and helpful indeed. We ate in the nice bright conservatory or there is a nice cosy bar area as well. It was a brilliant lunch, and when I asked the waitress if the ice cream was homemade as well, she said that everything is, and I saw nothing coming out that looked like it wasnt ! We cant wait to go back here again. Forgot to mention, if you dont fancy the carvery, there was a HUGE choice of main courses as well, at least 10 or even 12. Sometimes, I think, if there is such a huge choice of dishes, that they are more sort of 'fast food' type of food. This was definately NOT the case here. Well done Station Hotel,definately on to a winner there !!!
