Pleasantly situated pub in a backstreet of Blandford Forum. On our Saturday lunchtime visit, it was busy with football fans watching the Liverpool v Manchester United cup game on the many TVs. Aside from a couple of big screens, there was even a small screen below one of the handpulls or T-bars on the bar itself. A good selection of ales was on - Sixpenny Original, Flack Manor Double Drop, Plain Ales Innocence & Ringwood Best. Stowford Press was the only cider of note. I found the glut of football supporters hogging the bar area a little off-putting and not conducive with my desire for a quiet drink. For me, there's only one place to watch a football match - at the ground itself! We supped up and moved on to the Dolphin.

Agree with other reviews re being a dive, and customers' bad language. tucked down a back street, I thought it was derelict when I first saw it.

I may have found my Holy Grail of pubs. My first visit is on a quiet Monday night. The beer is great and the staff charming. The clients are teenagers, families with young children, and old hardened drinkers like myself. The decor is unpretentious and comfortable. It appears to be that precious thing, a real community pub like in the soap operas. Above all it has a great sense of fun. I can't wait to visit on a busier night with a band on.

The Railway has the largest range of attractions that I have ever seen in a pub, the only thing they haven't tried is a Wii but maybe I missed it. Good beer, lively atmosphere, great quality sports thanks to Sky HD, band & open mic nights, quizzes, pool tables, it's all going on. Long may it continue!
