Corrine’s return ticket to The Station in Bury St Edmunds
Newly opened The Station Steakhouse and Bar, in Out Northgate, Bury St Edmunds, is something of a welcome return in look as well as for its licensee Corrine Yendle.
In 2013, Corrine and Greene King invested in transforming the pub from the Linden Tree to the Station Steakhouse and Bar.
When Corrine left in 2017, the pub was re-styled and run by several different tenants until Corrine was invited to return to the business.
After an investment of between £22,000 and £25,000 and the fortunate discovery of many of the original 1920s/30s station-themed fittings the original railway style has been restored.
Corrine said: “It really feels like we have come home again.”
The bar specialises in a range of exotic meats sourced from Australia, including kangaroo, crocodile and alpaca.
Corrine and her three children came to the UK from her native Australia in 2004 after travelling to various destinations across the world. A large wall map depicting their journey was one of the features of the bar’s original station design and has been re-instated after being discovered under wallpaper.
A specially designed circular chandelier and pictures of past US presidents have also been rediscovered.
Corrine also runs the Steakhouse and Bar at Red Lodge and the Pancake and Waffle Shack at Fiveways, Mildenhall, as well as The Dolphin in Southampton.
Following the coronavirus outbreak, they have started a home delivery service for the Steakhouses and The Pancake and Waffle Shack.
