came in here for burgers a couple of weeks ago and they were terrible burnt and soggy chips which had changed colour as they were in a red serviette!!!! Tried the place again and had to send food back,,,,,really disappointing. Been in for drinks since and bar staff friendly but people were leaving as the wait was so long as only one person on. Shame....this used to be a really good pub.

We had a very enjoyable evening spent in the Railway with our daughter, we found the staff friendly and attentive, meals arrived in good time despite it being a busy night. Food was hot and nicely presented. My husband was very impressed by his gourmet burger. Very pleased with our decision to eat here we will be back.

We decided to try here after an awful experience at Wetherspoons in Sept (noisy,poor service undercooked inedible food).

This is the sort of place where you should not go to the toilet before you eat, they are disgusting.

We called in last Saturday at about 7.30 pm, there was one person on the bar and half the bar was full of dirty glasses.
We ordered our drinks and sat down , the table of 6 next to us had finished eating and were sat in front of dirty plates after 20 minutes they cleared there own table onto the already full of glasses bar area.
We never saw any other staff except the one at the bar.
the big mistake was going to the ladies toilet. There was no toilet seat and the toilet bowl was filthy.
We drank up and left.
horrible dirty place .

Came here on a busy bank holiday all table in pub were full, very friendly and helpful waitress cheerfully led us to function room at the back where there were plenty more seats. Food was usual pub grub, tasty and nice sized portion. The waitress was really helpful the whole time. Prices perfectly reasonable would love to come again.

Had lunch here today and we were very pleased. The staff were all really helpful, happy and great with the kids, bringing our daughter a balloon. The food was good, the gormet burger was amazing and the lasagne was nice, although did taste a little 'mass produced' but overall we will return for sure. Thank you
