We went because my wife Nicola knows the team but it’s quite far for us. The staff and service are spot on. The prices are also reasonable. The food though was all really nice. Fresh and well cooked food. The menu is good and varied...too and it’s surprisingly excellent for a remote location. No thing bad really from us and well worth the trip.More

Travelling from out of the area and visited today for Sunday Lunch. Friendly staff, covid provisions in place so felt covid secure. Nicely decorated . We choose the restaurant to eat in but the bar looked nice too, all nicely decorated for Christmas and had...a lovely atmosphere. Tables and chairs were very comfortable, quiet posh and well spaced out ! Really good selection of ales etc my 22 year son was impressed they had old mout cider on draft and my cold lager was a treat! Beautiful Sunday lunch ( I had a smaller Sunday lunch which at £7.95 was just right) . Lovely meat, Huge Yorkshire’s and great selection of fresh veg with lashings of real gravy. We had a really enjoyable Sunday lunch and the staff were really hospitable and welcoming. I couldn’t fault it .It was also great value for money and we will return.More

We hadn't been for a while, big mistake. The service was excellent my partner is a bit picky but the waitress wax very hempful. When the meals arrived they were faultless. I just wish I'd had enough room for the brandy snap dessert. Old Mout...on draught is a bonus as well. 10/10More

We’ve been coming here for years and I have even had my 80th birthday here with all my family. Usually we very much enjoy it. We came on Friday for the first time since lockdown and we were very disappointed in the food. The plates...used to be nice and hot - the waitresses would often tell us not to touch them! But this time they were very very cold and as a result the food was barely lukewarm - you’d expect at least the inside of the pie to be warm but it wasn’t. Instead of having vegetables in a separate dish, they were just thrown onto the cold plate. Amongst the vegetables there was a carrot that was just broken in half instead of sliced. The service was good but sad to say we won’t be coming back as it is far too expensive for such a poor meal. Very disappointed.More

I have frequented a fair amount of pub/ restaurants over the years and I can honestly say, without any doubt, The Railway Inn tops the lot.. polite, attentive and proffesional staff that, in my opinion, go above and beyond to make sure your visit is...the best it can be, nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. Exceptional food that never fails to dissapoint, always perfectly cooked and presented. A true gem of a place, worthy of a higher accolade.More
