Redecorated by the new owners, Barry and Liz Jones, this is a truly traditional English Pub with a large front bar which boasts bar stools, bar seating area and dining tables, not to mention the best seats in the house, two Edwardian wingbacks in front of the real open fire. The railway also has it's very own snug bar, for quiet dining and private conversation, you'll love the warm and cosy atmosphere. Add to these bars the sports bar, with Pool, Darts and SKY Sports on the big screen, the Railway has it all!

Lovely gardens out back for the summertime and paved area to the side which is a real suntrap.
