“The Railway Runcorn is back open again!”
Review of The Railway Hotel - CLOSED

Reviewed 31 January 2014

I am a contractor working frequently on the new incinerator and I visit The Railway a lot, staying at the Campanile hotel next door. I refuse to eat or drink at The Campanile as the quality is poor and I don't know the last time they had their beer lines cleaned, yuk.

The Railway did close down for a week due to a power debate but opened again Christmas Eve 2013 and is now back to usual with great food and great music, especially the open mic night. There is a refurb in progress which happens late at night and doesn't affect the opening times.

So glad to see it open again with another excellent brand new menu, some new staff who are great. Well done The Railway, I look forward to coming again in February 2014.

Sorry to tell you but this pub has closed. A dispute between pubco and energy company went bad when the supply's were cut off. They ran for a while on generator but this had been shut down before Xmas and the doors closed.

If you are in the area and want a meal then the Camponile hotel behind the pub does meals or you have a 10 minute walk into town If you just want a good pint then the Lion (hotel) does real ale and a selection of lagers.


Sorry for the bad news

I had been put off by the first review of this place to giving it a try. Its under new management, new chef and new menu and does it show.....the pub grub is excellent....what's more as a gimmick they do massive meals where if you eat them in 20 mins you get your name on the wall and a voucher. Very novel.

All in all good affordable pub grub, no frills but good.

I often go here to meet up with friends in the evening. It has such a great atmosphere, better than any other pub locally. The staff are really friendly and sociable. The food is lovely and surprisingly well presented for the price! They have lots of things going on too, with pool, quizzes and open mic night, which makes going out that much more fun! Definitely recommended for a good night out or a light bite to eat in the day!
