We visited the Railway Inn whilst visiting the area recently; it's a lovely pub. The menu is straightforward and the food excellent. We particularly enjoyed the home made steak pie. The beer (Wold Top) was also in cracking form. If you have the chance to go, go!

Great pub with a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Three of us had homemade pies and I had the fish and chips. All came hot and freshly cooked and all meals were most enjoyable. Excellent service, too. Good experience all round.
