“Great Food & Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We booked a table for 6 for sunday lunch at the Railway, The landlord greeted us by sliding in to the bar like John Cleese !, it was funny, the food was hot , tasty and plentyful but left no room for a sweet, I had the mixed grill and was shocked by the amount of food on the plate !, my wife had the sunday roast with lamb and the two meals came to less than £20. We will be back to eat again and to try the other real ales on sale, great day out.

“Another brilliant experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We've just come back from an annual trip to Wales and ALWAYS have to schedule in the Railway Inn for lunch on our days out, (we actually went four times this week) yes we do try other places but having two young children its perfect, there is a small play area two steps outside the back door to keep them amused while you wait for your food which can take a little while to come but that's because its freshly cooked and even the children's meals are superb,not the plastic pizza's and cheap chips that you sometimes. We used to eat in bar which can be a bit cramped if there are a few of you but now we book the restaurant which is roomier. I cant finish this review without mentioning the staff we saw a few different ones through the week but they were all great and very welcoming despite working so hard .. see you next year

“Below standard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

No atmosphere and very poor decor looking like an old school canteen. Service was poor with those shouting loudest being served first. The food was also a disappointment, my steak was tough and the chips over cooked to the the point that they were hollow inside and hard on the outside. We will not be returning.

“Another great meal in lovely surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

My wife and I ate here on Sunday evening and the food was as always fantastic. The staff are friendly and welcoming and even though they were very busy indeed they were coping well.

I have the Chicken Madras and my wife had the Lasagne which we both thoroughly enjoyed.

I would recommend this pub for a meal or a drink as its great to visit and surrounded by really nice scenery.
