The Station Hotel is situated on the outskirts of Kegworth next to the now defunct railway station. It is easy to get to from the M1 if you take the junction 24 exit into Kegworth and head for Sutton Bonnington.
The building, covered in ivy is easy to miss, but it retains its Victorian feel both in style and in decor, with Victorian flourishes both functional and superfluous.
Inside the lighting is subtle to reflect the gas lit days and there is a real fire to warm in winter. On the walls are train nameplates and other assorted train memorabilia from the Railway Children era.
There are two bars both serving a number of guest ales. On occasion St Peter's Golden Ale, Shardlow Whistle Stop, Pilgrim Porter and Townes Sunshine. Beer prices tend to be a bit steep.
Other rooms, such as the restaurant are upstairs. Here you can get tasty food served with style both lunchtimes and evenings. Food at a reasonable price is home cooked and to order, so please be patient. The whole trout has to be seen to be believed! Traditional dishes, though not a great deal for vegetarians. Food is served 12-3pm and 6.30-9.30pm and lunchtimes Sunday. Prices tend to be around the £11 mark for most dishes - vegetarian choice is limited.
Access for the disabled is possible, but not to the upstairs and the facilities are cramped.
For the summer there is a beer garden and if you listen carefully the locals say you can still hear the whistle of the 16.45 as it races through the station.
There is also accommodation here (en-suite available).
None as yet.
