I saw this pub/hotel on the net when I was in London on business on Wednesday and thought it a good idea to stay as I was going to Kenilworth the next day. I wasn't disappointed. I arrived fairly late, and the kitchen was closed but the landlady made me some excellent sandwiches. There was an excellent choices of ales... More

Went there on a group outing and both my wife and I ordered the lamb shank and apple pie to follow. The place was dead for a Saturday night, we were the only customers and it all felt a bit soulless. The food arrived on cold plates swimming in greasy watery gravy. The shank was the smallest I've ever seen... More

Great location right on the train station and short walk to Culham science centre. Very clean, bright and modern room. Decor etc not fully modern but very good for the price bracket. Good breakfast in the morning. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Downsides would be some noise from the trains (as expected when you're at the station!),... More

Having visited the Railway inn I found it the perfect spot to eat and drink, The food can't be faulted the beer is A 1 and although we did not stop the room and public spaces are the top's. Put this together with a very friendly and attentive staff it is a great place to go.

We stayed here for a night whilst visiting my son in Abingdon. The directions state 2.2 miles from Abingdon which was spot on even if it felt slightly longer. Prior to our arrival the hotel called me to make sure the way the beds were made up would be ok. I had booked for 3, myself, husband and daughter, they... More

Booked this accommodation over the internet as friends were hosting party in Abingdon. What a marvellous little find. Fabulous reception - and celebrating a wedding in hotel at the same time? - we were led outside and upstairs to a loft room with a huge ceiling window. Double bed with small adequate en suite. directly outside our room was a... More

Visiting that part of the world this looked to be an ideal place for us to stay. My partner is into trains in a big way. We also enjoy a drink so a pub by a railway station appeared to be ideal. So the good stuff first. Room although small was adequate. It was clean. The bed and pillows were... More

I stayed at the Railway Inn for 3 nights when in Wantage for work. The rooms aren't massive but were very clean, well maintained and had the most wonderful memory foam bed. I had opted for a quiet room on booking and with the window open, there is some traffic noise but with the windows closed, it was surprisingly quiet... More

We didn`t want to pay Oxford prices so we have just spent a night £78 b and b. I can say it was excellent. If you don`t mind trains passing within 2 minute walk from the room you will love it. We booked in and were greeted very well, the Inn have a lovely oldy world decor and covered in... More

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
