I'm finding this review particularly difficult to write because much about the Railway Inn is wonderful and yet in all honesty I cannot, in good conscience, recommend it as a B&B. The owners and their staff are all lovely people; friendly, welcoming, and helpful to a fault. In all respects that matter the establishment is clean, tidy, and comfortable. My... More

This pub is an absolute delight! The rooms were lovely and clean, and the food was wonderful, but the best part of the whole experience was the warm, friendly welcome we received. As expected, there was some noise from the trains, but it seemed to add to the experience rather than detract from it. We will definitely be back.

This is in absolute the most comfortable, clean and welcoming place we have been in the whole UK. Fantastic rooms, fair prices, wonderful home-prepared food and the nicest people ever. The bed and breakfast is over the old railway station, but the rooms are very silent, bathrooms faboulous. For beer lovers, it's also a pub!

This privately run pub is a modest establishment but is still a friendly and pleasant place to visit. The main bar is comfortable, with well a presented selection of local real ales and other drafts and serves a wide range of honest pub grub. The close proximity to the rail line is all too obvious as fast trains rush by... More

As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted with a warm welcome and smile. We were shown to our table which was nice and roomy, not one of the normally small tables you get. We were advised that we had a choice of Sunday roast or off the menu. We chose from both. The food arrived and... More

Hotel owner was lovely and very friendly. Room was clean and bathroom was nice. Beds were very hard, Ceilings sloping in bedroom and bathroom so you had to be careful not to bang your head. Not much room to move round bed and stairs were very steep up 2 flights. The trains were worse than I thought they would be,... More

Two weary walkers (following the Thames Path) were made very welcome by everyone. A warm comfortable room, nice food, excellent beer. The live band and the trains (clue is in the name!) failed to disturb us. I was even offered a vegetarian breakfast - so an extra point for that. Dog friendly too!

I stayed for one night as it had good ratings on Hotel.com and on Tripadvisor. My room was about 20 yd from a high speed train line, trains ran every 10 min or so. They stopped about 1am and started again about 5am, so I did not get much sleep. They adverts promised full internet, but I couldn't get it... More
