Hi James. Stanwell students always trying to get one up on everybody else. We hope you and your mate Louis are doing ok, and will join us for another cold beverage again soon.

I recently visited the Railway Hotel, a clean pub with a great atmosphere. Staff were nice and friendly. I had a mixed grill, would definitely recommend, the gammon was thick and juicy along with the steak #yummy I will be returning 😊

Fairly priced drinks and good quality food, we had steaks and gammon from the grill menu which were amazing. The staff were beyond helpful. I really like this local venue; I will be coming again.

The Railway pub has been popular for years with locals and outsiders. It is great to take the family for reasonably priced food, and also has an amazing atmosphere on the weekend evenings for young and old to go for a drink.
