“Great place - gets better”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We came here last year, 6 of us performing at the Buxton Fringe this year we were back with 18 and The Railway got even better - we had our meal here several times always good quality and excellent service and whatever the staff were always friendly - we booked a table for 18 and when we passed one of the staff members in town who has clearly finished his shift he greeted us and told us everything was ready . Nothing seemed too much trouble for the team. We also caught a great band there as part of the Fringe - don't know all the names of the staff they were all good - Nathan a particular star on the Sunday. We will be back.

“Lovely meal, great service!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Myself and a friend visited for a change of scenery. The good was good and great value for money. The service from the lad behind the bar was great (Pedro I think).

The only criticism would be the toilet having no seat, and also the juice plus meeting, it's pretty off putting listening to that whilst you're trying to eat a meal!

All in all, enjoyable experience and would visit again!

“good food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

we called in at the railway where we have eaten on many occasions over the years. although the pub decor is tired and in need of a makeover the food was good and great value. £8.99 for two meals cant be bad, in fact i dont know how they do it. we recently paid 3 times that for the same gammon egg and chips ad although it was top quality it was not 3 times as good. great service and friendly staff.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

I called here with 3 friends when we were enjoying a trip to Buxton. We were made to feel very welcome and the atmosphere in the pub was very relaxed, We ordered different items from the menu and we were all really pleased with the high level of food quality and the excellent service that we received. One person complained on the day that we were there, but some people complain about anything. We have visited many pubs for meals and this was one of the best. All of the staff were very friendly, but at the same time professional. We would definitely go back here again on our next visit to Buxton.
