The atmosphere in the dining room is warm and friendly. It was recently renovated and is bright and modern with great seating, a warm and cozy fireplace for the winter, and an air-conditioned interior. Large photographs and wall murals pay tribute to the era of train travel and the time of the Kettle Valley Railway.
“My go-to choice is the blue cheese burger topped with local Poplar Grove Tiger Blue Cheese with truffle fries and a local craft beer.”
A spacious outdoor patio with plenty of umbrellas provides an ideal setting for a meal on a warm summer day. It overlooks the gorgeous hotel courtyard which has many beautiful flowers and trees.
The restaurant features fresh, local ingredients, so the menu is constantly being updated to reflect the seasonal produce available from around the Okanagan. They offer a delicious selection of salads, burgers and sandwiches, forno over pizzas and main courses. They are not typical pub dishes. Try the blue cheese burger, which is topped with local Poplar Grove Tiger Blue Cheese paired with truffle fries. They make all of their own baked goods, soups, sauces and gravy in-house. They also have an impressive selection of local craft beers and ciders, local wines, and delicious and creative cocktails. View their menu online.
“When we can’t decide on just one dish, we will often choose two meals and share them both.”
We have dined here many times over the past years, and each time we have been impressed with the quality of the food, the friendly staff, and with the overall dining experience. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, and children are welcome.
The Station Public House (previously called the Kettle Valley Station Pub) often catches people by surprise, as this restaurant is definitely not a typical hotel restaurant. It’s a really special hidden gem in the South Okanagan, enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
