Both of these are perfectly correct grammatically, even though the first is more common in the north of England, and sounds richer and more descriptive when spoken in a north English accent:
"He was sat at the table".
"He was sitting at the table".
( For the record, "He was sat sitting at the table" is also grammatically correct).
