My husband and I live in the Katoomba area and were initially very much attracted to the "proper grown up" bar vibe of the Station Bar. It seems to have been a long time coming with some valiant attempts notably at the Carrington Hotel and Jack Thompson's tenure at the Gearins'.
Finally someone opened a bar with a reasonably adventurous outlook. It is a pretty straightforward business model that is very well executed. The boss chooses new craft beers from month to month to have on tap as well as having live music and wood fired pizzas.
It was with some distress we noted that the quality of the food came into question in the East Coast Australia edition of the Lonely Planet. August journal though it is we feel the criticism of the pizzas is unwarranted. They have a touch of adventure with crocodile and kangaroo toppings and everything beautifully fresh. These are NOT traditional pizzas but they are well executed and reasonably priced....I think the reviewer for lonely planet should give Staiton Bar another go

We visited this restaurant as a large family & friends party prior to attending a local show. The procedure is to order drinks and pizzas at the bar and leave a credit card with the bar attendant for payment at the end. The drinks were not expensive and the pizzas arrived quickly. When I booked, it was explained to me that the oven holds a maximum of 8 pizzas, so we may need to stagger our orders. This did not prove to be a problem as some of our party arrived late. The pizzas were crisp and delicious and quaintly named after all the Blue Mountains towns. Our request for a highchair for my small grandson was fulfilled promptly and cheerfully and it was actually very clean. We all enjoyed the very relaxed feel of the place complemented by tasty food and good service...will definitely be back!

After spending a couple of weeks holidaying in the mountains with friends we decided to head to the Station Bar on the last day to have a couple of drinks and a wood fired pizza on the recommendation of the hotel owner. I must say its a wonderful looking modern style pub with great ambience. The place looked promising until we were served our pizzas. Not very good at all. How can a wood fired pizza lack flavour? Well they certainly managed to do it. So if you're looking for a good bar to knock back a few, then this is probably the best in Katoomba, just don't order any of the food.

Helpful service with a smile and accommodating to customers' needs. The atmosphere was lively but a little on the loud side if you dined in the bar section. Started with cheese and garlic crusts and ended with that as it turned out to be the best of the 7 types of pizzas we ordered. The pizzas had no flavour. Could not taste the tomato paste, pepperonis, cheese etc. We all added salt to "create" some flavour. It is a shame as they have the wood fired oven to make a decent pizza, just they used poor ingredients.
