But it’s the Pullman railway carriage in the garden that most people know the pub for. Added to the rear of the premises in the early 1990s, the Royal Scotsman carriage provides a unique dining experience.

The Old Station has been run by the current owner since 2008 and the current annual turnover is around £250,000, although it was around £400,000 pre-pandemic.
