Description
The Railway Hotel operates 7 days a week from 10am until late. We do not have accommodation however we do offer a fun and friendly environment where people come to relax, dine and be entertained. We strive to offer our customers a different pub experience filled with high energy and high levels of customer service. Enjoy a meal from our extensive menu in the restaurant and front bar area or breath in the country air over a few drinks in the beer garden. The sports bars and gaming rooms boasts all the latest gaming facilities including TAB, Trackside, Sportspick and Keno. On the second level of the hotel is the newly built Hart Bar! Hart Bar is a multipurpose space that caters for live entertainment, corporate functions, parties, dinners, drinks, weddings and so much more. The best seat in the house would have to be on the veranda overlooking the Parkes Silos!
