I have eaten at this establishment on many occasions and feel it's about time it I gave them a honest review.
The staff are brilliant and really make an effort to ensure you don't want for anything, they are constantly cleaning and are very quiick to clear your table after a meal without being intrusive.
The food really surprised me the first time I ate here as I was just expecting basic pub grub but it was really really nice! I'm a very fussy eater so to find somewhere I can have a glass of wine (or two!) and something lovely to eat is a big deal for me. Each time I've gone back I've had something different off the menu and have yet to be disappointed.
The pub itself is larger than I expected and theres plenty of seating thanks to the bar having two sides that are served from, It is very clean for somewhere thats so busy and they also have a selection of real ales that they seem to change weekly - this is a very nice touch for my fiancee. I have been there when the pub seems to get very busy however the standard in service never drops, they are always friendly and efficent.
I do not live local but everytime I visit Hornchurch I make sure I visit The Railway.
