Three courses for 16 ish, had lamb shank and pork and pate and fish cakes, followed by cheese board and cheesecake.
Lovely girls serving, good wine list. Want to come back and see what the Sunday lunch is like!

We booked a Christmas meal for a party of 12 at The Railway and the food and service were both very good.

Been several times and could not fault the food - went this Friday lunch in search of some Christmas spirit to find absolutely no Christmas cheer at all!

No music, no lights on tree - dead Pointsettas and barstaff totally lacking in providing the welcoming touch you would have thought the week before Christmas.

Barstaff dead on 3 waiting with hats and coats to go - got the impression we should all have left at the same time! With the Swan just down the road a bit more attention to customers required.

Must say that when we went and the owner was there completely different - very friendly and welcoming.

Thinking feedback should be looked into by the management as it is their money and livelihoods being affected.

Was thinking of going on Sunday but have decided the Swan Westerfield instead - know their other pubs and they know how to do it - sorry Railway but fine tuning is required in a tough competitive industry.

Went there with others to have a buffet on Monday night. The food was first class - plentiful and hot when it needed to be. Staff were attentive and hard working, atmosphere was lovely. Liked the pub and would definitely use it again.
