The lady wife and I made an overnight stop here on our way south. First impressions were good. We received a friendly welcome from the owner and were shown to our room. It was both comfortable and very clean. We had also booked to eat and the food was excellent. I, of course, had to try the Abingdon Brewery beers... More

Landed and checkin was great, nice room, it was the hottest day of the year. It's a nice pub, where you can sit outside in the sunshine and heat!!!! Place was busy in the afternoon with loads of local workers calling in for a beverage and chat!!!! It's next door to the railway station and trains fly by at speed.... More

Thank you and thanks for the photo of the much loved mixed grill. I also like the other photos that show we are next to the rail. The regulars enjoy meeting new people as much as we do and draw people into the conversation. If you want to sit quiet that's ok too. More

I stayed at the Railway last year and the bedroom and meals were all top notch,so when we drove past looking for somewhere to eat it was a great to see somewhere I had been before. Plenty of choice on the menu. I opted for the mixed grill and it was very good. I can recommend the peppercorn sauce. The... More

Glad you enjoyed the meal. We keep our meals simple. There is a good range of food on the menu .The mixed grill is popular and all meats are purchased from our local butcher. It is a shame about the flies. I have purchased some zappers. More

Where do I start? The railway Inn has got to be the worse B&B I've EVER stopped in. Not only is it in the middle of nowhere, it's also over priced, over rated, over run by stinking flea bitten dogs that have a worse attitude than the owners of the B&B. We was verbally assaulted by the owners on the... More

7 adults in 3 rooms. On arrival I became aware that this party was same sex and would need an extra bed put up in 1 room. I asked if this is what they would like and as requested put this in place. I showed the young gentlemen to there rooms and explained procedures and policies as I went along.... More

A small, comfortable hotel/pub. convenient parking, slight noise from trains. Good choice of breakfast foods. Reasonably priced. Room quite small, shower room, no bath. Rooms are very clean, they were trialling a new in room coffee machine which also made tea.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you had a good stay. I have only 1 room with a bath all others have shower en-suite. Coffee/Tea machines are working out and give people a good choice of beverages in the room. There is a kettle if you prefer. More

A lovely country pub in the middle of nowhere - just it, the railway station and a bunch of science labs. Friendly service, felt as though I was a regular visitor! Fantastic breakfast, compliments sent to the chef by more than my table! Very popular pub, therefore quite noisy, also railway noise, which I didn't mind, but some might. The... More

Culham station and The Railway Inn is about 1 mile from the village of Culham. We do get a nice lot of locals in, who enjoy chatting with anyone that stays here.. The staff are friendly and helpful. We all like to help people feel comfortable. Thank you More

I received excellent and friendly service both upon my arrival in the evening and at breakfast time. .I got great value for money. The room was cosy and had a brilliant coffee machine that made a great cup of coffee- so much better than those awful sachets of instant coffee! Another great feature about this inn is that you can... More

This was a return visit based on location and excellent value for money last time. Pleased to say things haven't changed. Room rate was spot on, beer was well kept and the food was good value. The odd train does pass by but happy to return to this pub

I was attending an event at the nearby Science Centre. The room was clean and comfortable. The trains, well you know what you are getting when you book to be honest and they pass through very quickly. I used to live backing on a railway line so they were not a problem to me.

The room was fine with a nice bathroom only problem was sleeping with loud trains hurtling past the window. We had an evening meal there and the food was poor the... More
