My family and I love The Railway. We go here more often than not and it's always the best experience. The food is never let down; always spot on delicious. Their menu is extremely extensive, there are so many options that are all so so good. All the staff are super pleasant and always have a smile on their faces. Super great value for money!! Can't beat The Railway! :)

The staff and food were fantastic. Only tiny little fault was that the table we were sat at was a little squashed in and they could probably do without it. We were sat by the coffee machine facing the door which let a cold draught in every time someone came through. We were sat so close to the table next to us I couldn’t even move my chair.

A repeat visit and just as impressed as last time. Friendly helpful staff, lovely food, busy even on a Tuesday, but no feeling of being rushed out the door. Would recommend a visit.

We arrived very late due to taxi issues but it was not a problem at all. Our table was booked to us for 3 hours. The staff are very accommodating and the Yorkshire puddings were epic. Our regular go to place for good, fresh home cooked food

I had the Railway burger unfortunately it was very overcooked and I couldn’t eat most of it. The two friends that I was with, there meals were very good.
