My first visit to this place! I loved the food! I had a pulled pork bun with a super fresh salad and the best onion rings I have ever eaten. Our waiter Wanda was very friendly. My Man had a burger with bacon, jalapeno and cheesy sauce. He raved about it as he did about the chips and onion rings.... More

One of my favorite venues to watch Rugby. Lots of TV screens, both inside & out. Food is great & service decent. I suggest you book, if you have a big crowd.

My sister and I decided after a full weekend of going out to head to Station Masters to have a pub lunch and to relax outdoors. It is winter so we were clever enough to take a scarf and jacket which definitely helped with the chilly wind that came up later on in the afternoon. All the tables outside were... More

The sheer numbers that visit this place are indicative of its popularity and success. It's not a romantic quiet night out though - but for honest good for value, pub fare you cannot go wrong. Service was quick and the food was very good. Due to sheer volume they need to keep an eye on keeping tables cleared. Highly recommended.

Decided to try out the burger and beer night (Wednesday evenings). Burgers were delicious and the beer cold. My girlfriend requested a glass of wine instead of the beer and was accommodated at the same special price. Would definitely recommend it.

We were a party of four adults and two children for a late lunch on a Sunday. The venue is quaint and appealing, being the old Hillcrest Railway Station. The restaurant is literally on what was the platform, with the pub in what was the station building. Service was prompt and attentive. The food was standard grill house fare, with... More
