A huge pub in the same design as the Arrowe Park Hotel and Pensby Hotel.
I visited recently on a Sunday evening. Upon entering through the middle door there was a small serving area immediately in front of me. To the left was a large room which was busy with families eating meals. I turned right into an equally large room. This room however housed a group of around a dozen young, loud drunks who monopolised the bar area. Their antics were bordering on the outrageous. They effed and blinded and at one stage one of them picked up a member of staff and lifted him high into the air before the two of them collapsed onto the floor. The antics of this group dominated the room. During all this the barstaff took no action at all. I can only assume that this is normal behaviour at this establishment. I pity any locals who want a quiet pint as this is the only pub for a mile in any direction.
There was a large selection of lagers plus Guinness, John Smith’s and three handpulls, two of which (Ruddles and Abbot) were unavailable. I had a pint of Old Speckled Hen which was well kept.
I certainly won’t be returning.

Like its' sister pub, the Arrowe Park Hotel, the Railway is now a 'Hungry Horse'.

A 1,000-year-old Viking longship is thought to have been discovered under a pub car park on Merseyside.
The vessel is believed to lie beneath 6ft to 10ft (2m to 3m) of clay by the Railway Inn in Meols, Wirral, where Vikings are known to have settled.

Experts believe the ship could be one of Britain's most significant archaeological finds.
