Warm and Friendly Atmosphere

I visited The Railway last night for the first time - to watch the Leicester v Liverpool match. The atmosphere was very warm and friendly, and I will return. Excellent bar staff and Pinot Grigio.

We didn't get off to a great start when we arrived, as the pub had run out of real ales, just! This was unfortunate as we had driven some distance to watch a band that was on later and wanted some food as well. We left and went up the road to another pub, returning later. This time I opted...

Hi, and thanks for the great review. We apologise for our lack or ales available when you visited, and for running out of porter, sometimes it's impossible to gauge just how popular a guest ale is going to be. We're glad that you appreciated our efforts to make your visit enjoyable & hope that, next time you visit, we'll have... More

A most obliging pub a little tucked away but worth seeking out. If you are a rugby fan or any sports fan here is somewhere that will be showing the game you want to see. And friendly locals too

Every time we visit Oakham, it's a tradition to visit the The Railway hosted by Trevor. Good food at reasonable prices and great conversation. Shame he is considering retiring. The mixed grill or the sirloin steaks are recommended. See you there.

I have been to Trevor and Brenda's pub a number of times, and have always been pleased with the quality of the food. Their steaks are first class, but they also serve a variety other dishes. Just 1 minute from Oakham railway station. Oakham is a wonderful market town in the county of Rutland, well worth a visit
