Took friends to dinner here. No need to book - we were soon seated and served. Meals were excellent and price very reasonable.

Absolutely delish! This place rocks for their food... on a busy Friday night, the food took a while to come but was well worth the wait. Because everything is cooked fresh, they are very accommodating if you want to change any of the accompanying veg etc. Totally recommended!!

Popped in for a meal at what is going to be our new local shortly, and we definitely weren't disappointed. Great selection of meals and the blue cod tasted like it was fresh off the boats. Super friendly Irishman at the bar, and cosy atmosphere. Really looking forward to many more meals and chats here.

Quick service, ok menu selection, good amount of food - served hot and presented pub grub style. Wine selection was basic, house wine was less than ok but beer and spirits plentiful. Not somewhere you'd take that special someone for a special treat

Forget your past experiences if you have been to the Railway Tavern for a meal. The new owner, being Irish, knows what makes a good pub. Great food, at the lowest possible price and plenty of choice.

Needed a simple local meal and walked to this unassuming tavern. Their welcome and service was excellent and we spent a long time chatting to our Irish host. Our Fish and Chip meal ticked all the boxes as did a glass or two of the local beer.

This is a pub that doesn't pretend to be anything more, but in saying that the restaurant is private, well established and the serving staff are hilarious. The food is traditional 'pub' food but everything about it is delicious, I had the Thai Green Curry which was very good. The meals are quite cheap and overflowing with food. Having visited... More

Good food, good prices and good service. The kids loved the food and so did the adults. The service was excellent and friendly and we were well looked after. Drink prices are good and there is plenty of room to sit down and enjoy them. Thanks Barry.
