Lovely little village local with friendly bar staff. Four ales on when we visited; two I tried were spot on. The atmosphere even on a quiet Monday evening was warm and welcoming. Certainly a nice place to head to have a drink, watch sport or simply chat with friends.

This is a very friendly pub, including dog friendly, with a great selection of beer and also local gins if you like gin. A good crowd on a Friday evening. When we went into the overflow darts area one of the staff came out to put the heater on to make sure we were warm enough. Lovely!

We visited the Railway Inn on three evenings 3 to 5 October. The website listed 5 real ales and we were not disappointed, all 5 were available and fantastic and very well kept. The bar staff were absolutely fantastic and the pub, quaint and very friendly. This is how a pub should still be, local customers seem to meet up... More

Visited a few times during a week in Lower Largo - found it hard to fault the place. They do not do food as such but do have a limited selection of toasties at lunchtime.... Good prices, WiFi and Dog friendly to boot Its a shame I could come here more often as one of my dogs is slightly reactive... More

Have visited several times and can honestly say that this is one of my favourite pubs. Great drinks selection, particularly good beer selection. Staff and locals always friendly. Also very dog friendly.

This is a great little pub close to the sea. There were a lot of locals in and no surprise with a great range. There were four or five lagers, a couple of beers as well as four or five guest ales. They also tease you with what is waiting in the cellar!!! I didn't even look at bottles Uber... More

Visited looking for a spot of lunch. Only food on offer was toasties or pies. Even so both were very tasty. Our two Irish Setters were made very welcome, being given a bowl of water & dog biscuits. A nice touch ! Will need to return some evening, as I think a fine time could be had here.

Fab wee pub, very welcoming with a good drinks selection. Staff were also great and offered fantastic service. It has such a chilled out atmosphere, which was just what we needed! A must to visit if you are travelling along the Fife coast/Lower Largo.

Lovely, friendly wee pub. Very dog friendly and they always gave my wee dog a bowl of water and a biscuit on arrival. Bar staff were very friendly and efficient. Great WiFi and code written above bar so didn't even need to ask.

We rented a cottage and this fab wee bar was just across the road..dog friendly and our dog was regularly given biscuits and made to feel very welcome. Staff very friendly, locals too and the local gin drinks a must. Also kid friendly. Has a lovely traditional feel to the place and a great selection of malts
