Update on the Railway is that there is still no ale at all but it is the only place within a good few square miles that resembles a proper pub. The biker clientele are a good solid and relatively friendly crowd. No noticeable knobheads that used to frequent the place. Kind of your only pub in quite a wide area.

Your description of this pub reminds me of the advert - "he should have gone to spec-savers!" By the way I hear they are selling spectacles now without the rose-tint. A Harley on the new pub sign - wow - that should pack 'em in! A bit dangerous, I would have thought, to have your customer base as "middle-aged/elderly chaps and ladies" - one good flu pandemic and you could find yourself without any customers at all!! ;-)

The pub has actually had a complete refit, including new upholstery and furniture, the creation of a snug, and a dining area to the rear. Sunday roast dinners have been introduced. It's not a real ale pub, but there are always 2 cask ales on offer, currently London Pride and Doombar. There was an initial problem with the music, but that's been sorted out and now its zoned front and back. It is a local wet pub, which is a good thing as these are fast disappearing and either shutting or being "gastro-pubbed". I'm a local and I've never done any "intimidating" or been "intimidated", and the bikers on show are generally middle aged/elderly chaps and ladies who belong to a bike club, hence the Harley on the new pub sign. The natives here are very friendly, as are the staff, if you make the effort and since the refurb things are slowly on the up. It's the only proper pub for miles and its worth the effort.

Oh dear! I see this going the same way as it's namesake on the Ridgeway. Yes it's been painted and yes there's a new bit of flooring laid but there it ends. Same intimidating locals, same loud rock(?) music, same one hand pump and it tasted like the same beer even though the pubs been closed!! A lot of money was spent on the Railway Engineers on the Ridgeway but when it reopened it failed to attract new customers because the old intimidatng locals were still there. If that's the same dozen or so customers that is wanted fine but the management might as well have saved the money on the paint job!

Had a go. If this is the new management they must be using the same hand book as the old! Ale awful. One pump and goodness knows what was in it! Loud rock(?) music and intimidating locals. The furniture deserves the clientelle! Left the beer and the pub. It was three nos from us! Absoutely dreadful!
