Visited here on a Saturday afternoon, we were the only people in at the time so thought we'd order lunch, the lady serving was lovely and helpful. We ordered the steak and ale pie and it looked lovely and well presented when it arrived, however we were extremely disappointed to discover it was stone cold! We sent it back for... More

Called in for lunch on a Wednesday lunchtime. Reasonable menu, offering a good choice of dishes. Chose Fish and Chips which was served promptly and didn't disappoint. Crispy batter, fresh fish and well cooked chips. A great pint of Youngs Golden Ale topped it off.

We have eaten in here a few times now since the change in owner and I can honestly say that we have never been disappointed. The menu is good, some may say its limited but I would rather only have 5 or 6 choices of each course and they are all cooked well than a dozen or more options done... More

We booked the Railway Inn for a family function comprising 25 people. The buffet provided was to an excellent standard and the service/enthusiasm from the team, led by Jo, could not have been more positive. Additionally, Jeremy was highly supportive in setting everything up in advance.

The Railway is perfect for good beers and wine and the food is great. Not a huge menu but that doesn't matter when you're getting really lovely pub food. Great burgers, tasty fish and chips, along with a lovely beef brisket dish which is very good. The deserts are also great! Combine this with great service from the friendly staff... More
