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

My partner and I stayed here for 3 days, from 4th August to 7th August. We had a delightful stay here. The hosts and regulars were welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast lovely. The Guinness was good and I had the black cherry Bulmers which was really nice. Situated right next to the station was great,... More

Coming down the Thames path we were gagging for a good pint and were not disappointed. Had a great mixed grill and a few pints from the hand-pump. all of which were great, and then the next morning the best breakfast of the whole trip. Would recommend and stay again.

Walking the Thames Way and chose the Railway Inn for our first overnight stop. Great little find, friendly and welcoming staff. Good beer and good food. The breakfast was the best we had on the whole walk. Of course there were trains (it is called the Railway Inn) but when you have been walking all day you soon get to... More
