Something rather good has happened at the Railway. No longer a Marston's House, instead now owned by a small expanding chain. They have made subtle changes and the result is reflected in the friendly atmosphere, good service and value that make this pub a winner. A lick of paint outside, and new outside lighting make it a welcoming oasis. Inside, Landlord Mark now has more freedom to run the business and let his flair show. The usual Marstons beers were on, plus 2 guests, one of which"Trelawney" all the way from St Austell, Cornwall had travelled well and was a delight at 2.90, somewhat cheaper than in it's home territory. Our party enjoyed excellent fare chosen from a slightly more adventurous menu, which nevertheless still contains staple pub grub favourites. The bar menu is still available for thase who just need a quick bite. Starters were excellent value and the locally sourced steaks were divine. We left well fed and watered, feeling we had been treated as customers not numbers and had enjoyed great value food and drink. All in all, a very pleasant evening, thanks to Mark and his attentive, efficient serving staff, plus of course the crew in the engine room. As we left the crowded dining room at around 9pm, the next influx were were being seated. What a lucky man he is.....

Midweek evening eating and drinks for a party of 4. Good ales, super value, tasty food from straightforward menu. No Lobster or Foie Gras, but well chosen basic fare. Tremendous banter from Landlord. You don't want to leave! Sadly we were the only diners that evening, but we enjoyed hospitality other local establishments struggle to offer. This guy is on a learning curve as a new Landlord, but I don't reckon the brewery is giving much support. He is wellworthy of your support, and needs it in these days of austerity. I will certainly be back. I endorse contributor "quaffed's" comments. "New Menu Soon" said the sign. We all know what that means. Marstons Estate, so the usual suspects on draught. Recommended.

Every time I visit the Railway they serve consistently good beer and always have a cheery smile to greet you. Locals have rediscovered this pub now under the able guidance of enthusiastic Mark. Good banter is now the order of the day, as is the not overpriced food, bring it on.

It is nice to see this pub open again, this time with a licensee that knows how to keep a good pint and serves it well.( only Marstons and Banks but the Pedigree was well received ). I am noticing that it does serve sensible priced bar meals ( not yet tried, but when brought out, look good ) . Looking forward to the next visit already.
