Poor selection of alcoholic and soft drinks. Quite small and very basic and in need of update. After reading other reviews it seems to be best to visit on live music night.

Popped in for a drink whilst visiting Rothbury. Whole place smelled dirty and felt grimy. Think it probably only used by a few locals by tradition. Wouldn't risk eating there if the smell of the place anything to go by.

If you like a curry, you cant beat this place. You get your drinks in the bar and take them upstairs to the Village Tandoori restaurant. Good selection of delicious indian food. They also do takeaways. Best place in these parts for a good curry.

My wife and I had a quick drink in The Railway before our meal in the upstairs Indian restaurant. Service was friendly and prompt. We also purchased a bottle of wine to have with our meal which was lovely and resonantly priced.
