Review by: Janeg (16) on


Lunched here on a drizzly day and it felt welcoming on entering. Service was attentive without being obtrusive - meals arrived in good time, mine being the corn fritters with bacon while my companion had the chicken and bacon sandwich which she claimed was the best sandwich ever! Fritters absolutely full of corn, maybe a little heavy, but delicious all the same. Prior to arrival of the (ciabatta) sandwich, the waitress offered my companion a steak knife ("as ciabatta can be difficult to cut) - nice helpful touch. Presentation good and we really appreciated chutney, sour cream and vinaigrette, placed in mini dishes/jug on the side of our plates - allowing us to control these additions. Both meals were generous, healthy and full of such fresh ingredients, and were absolutely delicious! No fries in sight - Yay! (Unless you order a small side of fries of course) Well done ...we'll be back! (Score based on not experiencing Toilets, Dessert or "Child-Friendly")

Called in here for lunch with my mother a couple of weeks ago - a 92nd birthday treat for her!
My Mum's appetite isn't huge, so she thought she'd order an entree, but she ended up with fish and chips (fish of the day was tarakihi); there were two reasonably sized fillets, properly cooked in a very nice beer batter which was not at all greasy and a fair serving of chips that may or may not have been hand-cut, accompanied by a small dish of tartare sauce and one of ketchup. So much for a light meal!! Having said that, she wolfed it all down apart from a few chips and a bit of fish that I had confiscated.
My lunch was a big breakfast, with bacon, scrambled egg, tomatoes and mushrooms with a couple of chunks of toasted ciabatta; the highlight however was a humungous hunk of home-made hash brown about 3cm thick! Delicious.
Staff were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Prices appeared reasonable, although we didn't have dessert of coffee, my Mum's appetite being what it is.
Certainly a venue marked down for a return visit with people who have decent appetites!

Child Friendly Kind of

The Station has a lovely atmosphere. The service comes with a smile. It's warm inside on a cold day/night. It has a nice relaxing environment. I ordered the Pork Belly for dinner. It was the best I have had and a decent size. My friend ordered the Mushroom Risotto and I got to try some. It was delicious, seasoned well and a great sized helping. What a lovely place to have a meal, quite intimate. Recommended.

Popped in for a Sunday lunch here while visiting family and friends in Rangiora. I went for the cheapest option on the menu (a bowl of chips at $8.00), Mrs Yobbo had the corn fritters, and Aunty Dawn opted for the eggs benedict (without the Hollandaise). All meals were very nicely presented (even the bowl of chips!), and were generous in size. Dawns eggs were cooked exactly to order, and service was friendly and prompt. All in all we had a really nice lunch, and this place is certainly a popular spot with the locals, as there were plenty of patrons coming and going while we were there. Would definitely return.

We went for a lovely meal at the Station a month ago today and I tried to put a glowing review on here only to find it wasn't listed. I tried to list it but found it was pending, now it's listed I have forgotten exactly what we had to eat! I know I had the bangers and mash, which were delicious and beautifully presented. From the online menu I am reminded that they were Hungarian spiced sausages. I think my wife had the chicken but I can't really remember, I know she thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't have desert as we were pretty stuffed from the mains. Highly recommended.
