We walked about six miles from the caravan site at Burrs Country Park into Ramsbottom, absolutely shattered, wondered where to find a place to sit down, eat, and get a warm. The Railway did not appear to be advertising food, but thought we would go an ask if, they served food, would they allow us in with a dog. What a lovely warm welcome. The put inside is clean tidy, warm and comfortable, whilst keeping much of the older pub charm. The beer was keg and really good. We ordered beef and onions in a ciabatta bread roll for £4.00. Our plates came loaded with beef which was really tender and full of flavour, we had ordered a portion of chips to go with the rolls, which we struggled to each because there was so much.

Really lovely atmosphere, in a relaxed environment, well worth a try.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and thank's for taking the time to leave us this positive comment. As you mention we welcome well behaved dogs along with walkers. If you are really muddy just leave your boots at the door or if your prefer sit in the beer garden. We have a bowl for dogs to drink from, just ask behind the bar.

Been in a couple of times since new landlord Joe took over. Nice warm welcome, refurbished and a great night out. Not tried food as yet but great for a pint or two and great local live bands.

It’s amazing that so many people who visit the pub comment on the transformation since we took over last year. Thanks for your custom, this positive response and spreading the word on how much better the pub is since we took over. Hope we tempt you with some food next time you visit.

Only popped in for a quick snack before our bus arrived. What a lovely cosy pub with some quirky vintage pieces dotted around. How surprised were we when our side orders of chips & onion rings arrived! We weren't expecting much but massive homemade onion rings were awesome as were the chunky homemade chips.....should definately try something more next time.

Thanks for calling in to the pub and taking the trouble to writing this positive review. We launched our new menu this week which includes more snack items as well as some fantastic new main dishes; I do hope you can call in again soon.

Over the Christmas holidays we went here for some food with my partner and 2 boys. We were very surprised at not only the quality of the food but also the quality of service. I felt that nothing was too much trouble for the landlord Joe, he was friendly and very helpful, altering meals to keep my two young sons happy. The food was delicious and the best quality pub food I've ever tasted, we also didn't have to wait long at all. We took cards to keep the family happy and spent hours here having fun. It's a lovely clean pub and would (have) recommended it to family and friends. If your looking for good quality food, in a nice friendly atmosphere this is definitely the place to be. Prices are very reasonable too.
