Went for lunch on the12th June to be met with a closed sign. Unfortunately it appears that The Railway is no more, at least for the foreseeable future. A very great pity!

Really enjoyed the set course lunch. Lovely pub, hidden in the back streets. Good choice, fantastic value for money and absolutely delicious dessert...lemon tart. We will be returning. ( Obviously it is a bit of a celebrity haunt as well, as we spotted a well know Broadchurch character dining!)

Arrived to find out that the restaurant had no visibility of any bookings made online due to technical problems, however they assured us we could have a table. I found the menu was rather limited and the usual fish options had been removed. After ordering quickly we had atleast a 20minute wait for our meals. Our £15-£20 dishes arrived eventually... More

A pleasant lunch in a very welcoming restaurant, the Owner father went out of his way to assist with the Gluten free menu. A very fresh large place was served and a great chicken dish. A very relaxing environment with good local produce.

Very well renovated pub/restaurant with an interesting and varied menu. Liked the environment and the staff were excellent. All three of us thought the food was very good. Just a bit slow in coming as there were only three staff in the kitchen who were struggling to cope with the number of customers. Would recommend booking as we were told... More

Had an excellent meal here with my husband to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. Arrived early for our pre booked table but was seated straight away by a very friendly girl (forgot to ask her name) who said it was her first night working here. We ordered our food which was served promptly by our friendly girl. The food... More
