Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were based in Lundin Links for our holiday in Fife and this pub became our local, We visited most nights and were served by a few different bar staff and all were friendly and welcoming. As in the name it has a railway theme in its decor, also it is under the very scenic railway bridge over Lower Largo, Great for photos, but maybe before you've gone in! There is also a beer garden located basically under the bridge, sliding doors like old rail carriages and was very clean throughout. A very welcoming stop for the Fife Coastal Path and a dog friendly hostelry.

5 real ales can be on at one time and there is a nice selection of Malt whiskies and a emphasis on a large selection of Gins. Good interaction as well with the friendly locals, good banter. We really enjoyed our times at the railway Inn and it will be our first pitstop when we return to Fife. Don't change a thing.

Last two weekends I have visited the beer garden , complete with covered areas, heaters and table service . The team here have adapted and provided a safe and ambient outside area to comply with all the restrictions. They provide toasties or pies as a snack and have a great gin selection. Glad you are back !

I'm originally from this area, though I've been away for 44 years now. We return regularly and this, The Railway, is one of the best traditional pubs in Scotland. Great range of real ales, whiskies, gins and other drinks. Friendly staff and fabulous atmosphere. Wee beer garden out the back if the weather's warm. It's a pub for having a drink and a chat, though there is a weekly quiz night. You can get a snack (toasties and pies) lunchtime but if you're hungry, the Crusoe Hotel (good food) is literally across the road. Can't recommend this place highly enough and Largo is a lovely village with beautiful beaches (nearest being about 70 yards from. the pub's front door). Treat yourself!

Excellent pub but it is a pub not a hotel. No accommodation. Great value pies and toasties served 12-4 £2.50-£3.25. Good variety of ales. Interesting decor. Wood burning stove. Children and dogs allowed. Come here for lunch then go for a walk along the beautiful seafront. We’re planning a walk but are currently too cosy to want to leave

Warm, welcoming, friendly and with a superb, ever changing range of well kept cask ales. Interesting and historic interior decor and artefacts with enough outdoor space to enjoy a pint or two in the sun whilst watching the tide rise and fall. Reasonable prices and well worth a visit on your holidays

First visit to lower Largo and out for a stroll we found this pub. Excellent service and friendly staff.
We visited three times over two days and had a great time chatting to friendly locals and other visitors.

Bit late this but my wife and I were staying at the Upper Largo Hotel on 4th September and walked down around 4pm. Lovely walk through the woods and along the beach. Tide came in to stop beach bit of walk home. The weather was glorious and we sat at a picnic table out the back in the sunshine. Loved it. We had 4 drinks was so relaxing. I loved going back inside to such a cosy friendly bar, the landlady was very pleasant and we just wanted to stay there. Thankyou, one of the nicest bars we have ever been to, and that is saying something !!?? We are away in Lanzarote Dec and Jan but looking at trying to sort something out for Feb/March to return. Brilliant.

We were staying in Lower Largo for a couple of nights and popped along to this friendly and warm pub. Excellent range of beers, spirits and real ales. Good social distancing measures in place and despite that all the regulars engaged in chat and even recommended a few places to eat and stay. We’re coming back in December and look forward to returning to this lovely village and village pub.

We were staying in Lower Largo for a couple of nights and dropped in for a beer.
We were there during the pandemic and the pub had good policies in place, we sat outside in the rear yard.
Enjoyable evenings, beer was good and special drinks were excellent.
Only spoiler for me was the well educated noisy local chap who think it is the English who brought Covid to Scotland - very village....
