About The Station Kitchen
Being based on the Dorset coast, our menu changes frequently in line with what the local fishermen have caught. There is often a number of whole fish options on offer, along with shellfish, subject to seasonal availability. The Station Kitchen prides itself on its varied modern British menu. All dietaries are catered for.
When booking your table, you can request to sit inside the carriage, inside the historic station house or outside on the platform seating.
Good quality local produce served in a friendly manner
Just wonderfully magical! / reimagined the carriage restaurant in an outside canopy. Excellence food and service. Thank you for making our trip!
Fresh fish was wonderful, the staff made such an effort for my sister on her special day. Thank you again! :)
We visit the Station Kitchen every time we visit Dorset, it is our favourite place for a special evening in the area(great service & food) The most recent visit didn’t disappoint, a great setup for outdoor eating in April. The menu is always appealing, my husband’s Skate was exceptional on our most recent visit. We will be back
Gave me a suprise birthday card, which was a great gesture. Made efforts to rearrange tables in rain. Top service. Would recommend.
Absolutely lovely restaurant and so gluten free friendly! We will definitely be back.
Nice setting with carriage and vintage style table lay up. However we came before May 17th so we were outside on the terrace, we felt the menu was very limited, if you didn’t like burgers, then your in trouble...as not many other choices on the menu. May be a limited menu because outside dining though? I could only give 4 stars for the atmosphere as we visited on a rainy day and got rather wet on our walk prior so we felt the cold as eating outside, yes I appreciate this was not the restaurant fault and we shouldn’t be marking them down because of this, but we over heard the staff offering the table next to us blankets if they should get cold, this option was not offered to us! There was patio heaters but these weren’t turned on during our visit. We did feel the staff serving us treated us differently to other tables as we could over hear them explaining more of the menu to other guests etc as well as offering blankets and coming back to check that their meal was ok, we didn’t have any of this. We had burgers to eat and we both agreed the chicken burger was rather tasteless sadly. However, the coronation coleslaw that comes with it was yummy! The restaurant does automatically put on service charge on your bill, it says optional but who really has the nerve to question it/asked for it to be removed... I however always leave a tip and usually more than 10% but when the restaurant automatically adds a tip at their amount of choice this winds me up, off course I am always going to pay it but actually if the restaurant hadn’t automatically added this, then they would have got more from me than the 10% they added..
Very nice atmosphere and the food was very good. The service was a bit dilatory to start with and a table that had arrived after us, got served before us. However, we were impressed with the menu and the food.
The food was the most outstanding we have eaten. The staff were wonderful especially given the extra demands of serving in the current context. A real treat.
Lovely restaurant, great food, friendly staff
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! A fabulous meal served by lovely waitresses; will highly recommend to friends and family👍
Rebooked due to awful weather on first night - great customer service and really helpful. Excellent service. Welcoming atmosphere and a great music selection. Despite it being outside on the platform due to Covid restrictions, marquee was really cozy and warm. Tasty food, burger was excellent. Thank you so much. Would definitely come again.
We popped down for a Birthday lunch, first meal out since restrictions lifted. It was so lovely to be welcomed back by a member of staff that recognised us. The food and service were outstanding as always. A great deal of care and attention to detail has been taken to provide a beautiful, safe area for everyone to dine on the Platform. Fabulous time had by us both, see you again soon.
Beautiful location lovely food and service Didn’t expect service charge on bill as standard I like to decide on tip
Enjoyed our dinner! It was a little chilly but nice to be back at a restaurant enjoying a decent meal and drinks! If I’m ever in the area again I wouldn’t hesitate in returning.
The food was extremely tasty with an extensive menu and the service by Sharon was very attentive. The wine was slightly overpriced when taking into account the automatic 10 per cent service charge. We went on not the warmest evening but blankets were provided and we felt very welcome.
Fab place. Staff helpful and friendly. Great food
Loved everything! The service was impeccable, food and drinks were outstanding. The atmosphere was lovely, a real feel good vibe , quirky and charismatic.
Food was nice. Although the over priced Dover sole was a bit tasteless to be honest. My partner enjoyed his steak though. All in all a pleasant enough experience.
Incredible food. Lovely service. Beautiful decor.Would love to come back and eat in the carriage!
Very nice place and food!!

What a lovely relaxed atmosphere, staff excellent, will be back again very soon ,food stunning, steak cooked to perfection 👌
