Serving Holderness since 1857

History
The Queen of Holderness

Patrington, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Holderness; 10 miles from Hedon, 18 from Hull, 25 from Hornsea, 57 from York, and 188 from London. Patrington was one of the ‘towns’ recorded in the Domesday Book and has the earliest recorded evidence of any settlement in Holderness.

The pride of Patrington is the nationally known St Patricks Church, also known as the “Queen of Holderness”, often said to be the most beautiful parish church in England, attracting visitors from all over the country.

Patrington was served from 1854 to 1964 by Patrington railway station on the Hull and Holderness Railway. Just in front of the no longer existent railway line sits The Station Hotel. Built in 1857 and originally called Telegraph Inn, The Station Hotel acquired its name in 1916 when the then owner officially changed its name.

The Station Hotel was purchased in 2004 by Armin Hüpper who extensively modernised and extended the pubs facilities, transforming what was once the coach house into a private function room and adding an extensive conservatory to seat a further 50.
