We arrived early evening, staff not particularly welcoming. Shown to our room eventually (family room) which was very basic. The bathroom rubbish bin had someone's dirty nappy in it. The bunk beds squeaked so bad it woke everyone up any time someone moved an inch. The double bed had a plastic sheet on it which I found very uncomfortable and... More

Situated in a lovely setting, this Inn is well worth a visit whether you want accommodation or just food. Staff were professional, friendly and very welcoming. Accommodation is extremely clean, spacious and very comfortable. Food is outstanding (warning even their small plates are large). The bar is well stocked and more importantly well maintained. I can not recommend the Railway... More

All the staff are polite and attentive and the food is spot on. Bring your appetite with you, they fill the plates and it's all good! We all had different dishes; lasagne, pie, sausages and salmon and we all really enjoyed trying each other's as well. Reasonably priced fantastic food.

The chips were excellent, even had crispy bits on them best i've had for yonks . The missus had the Sunday dinner , when she asked if it was possible... More

We have been down the railway inn for a meal. We had to wait about 15-20 minutes for our food but It was well worth the wait as the food was spot-on. I think one for they bigs problems are with the facilities in the ladies as the lighting is poor and they are not the best.

Ok ,it seems a bit of a mystery that this oasis for the weary visitor to the Staffordshire Moorlands,doesnt do better than it seems.The owners are more than welcoming and the meals are plenty.Ten of us sat for about twenty minutes after we had ordered,and were rewarded admirably for our wait.Portions were ample and presentation was superb.Ok its a pub...

We didn't book this hotel but arrived at our hotel to find they had double booked and sent us to the Railway Inn as they'd be expecting us. On arrival a man groaned that we'd been sent there and a polite woman who seemed a little embarrassed by him took us to our room. The 'family room' was very basic,... More

Stayed over at weekend with my daughter and 2 grand children while visiting Alton Towers 10 minutes away. Traditional pub with exceptional food which was so well presented - rib eye steak and sausage and mash spot on, lovely large breakfast. There was a party on when we stayed but we heard nothing as room was at the back. The... More

After hearing good reviews about this place we decided to go there for a family meal. There were 6 of us, 2 adults and 4 children, we had to wait about 5 minutes while they cleaned a table for us, which was not a problem, but when we sat down no one approached us to give us menu's or tell... More
