Lovely welcome as always at the Railway Inn...... Fabulous fresh local produce used for the delicious breakfast cooked by landlord David.... Great service from friendly staff. Would recommend a visit... close to Alton Towers.... Churnet Vally Railway... on the door step of the Peak District.

We called for a late lunch and found a good typical pub grub menu and a good array of cask ales. My lasagne was overcooked, but hubbies steak pie was just right. Huge portions - too much to eat really, and very friendly staff. Definitely a place to return to.

Our room was large, clean, warm & quiet (being a pub some people might worry about the noise - do not). We had a view onto the Churnet Valley Railway - which (in addition to being a very nice structure) was minutes walk away. This being very handy as we were going to its Halloween event. If you are going... More
