Great food as always and a lovely evening given the circumstances. The outside us under cover and has heat lamps. It's a pity we're going into tier 3...

Quiet no doubt due to the current restrictions so the atmosphere was a bit subdued. The food was excellent

We returned to the Railway for an anniversary meal, having held our wedding reception there in December 19. All we can say is that we ate literally everything, including the salad garnishes. The food is divine. Lovely, friendly service. The actual interior and decor is full of character, and super cosy. One of our favourite venues in Cheltenham.

We have had a couple of wonderful meals at the Railway recently, most recently to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was delicious, a small menu but a good selection, there was something for everyone (including vegan choices). The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delivered quickly. The atmosphere was quiet but that is to be expected at the moment and not the fault of the Railways...as it is quiet is preferable from the perspective of diner although, of course difficult for the pub! We noted that the railway have extended their covered outdoor area, there were heaters and we were given blankets for our knees. Despite it being a rainy, mid December afternoon we felt quite snug. In normal, non Covid times we love gout to the Railway, especially for the quiz in a Tuesday evening. Its always fantastic, great food, great drinks and great staff. I hope this business survives, they have gone to a lot of effort to keep everyone safe and make everyone comfortable. We will be back soon!

Only rated atmosphere 3* because not many other clients in at time - nothing to do with staff or pub itself. Love this place.

Love the railway. I try and eat there regularly and especially during current indoor restrictions I think the facilities they offer there are fantastic. Some really nice touches with blankets in each seats, staff are brilliant, totally covid secure and the food is heavenly. My only slight down point and it's not even really a down point is that because I'm vegetarian there's only 2 dishes really I can eat. Although I appreciate the duck can be made veggie. To be fair all their veggie dishes are actually vegan so accessible to all. It's just I'm eating there once a week at the moment so just if there could be a third dish, specifically designed vegetarian that'd be amazing, but even the two dishes I'm happy to keep returning and alternating. Also a really, really good beer and wine list too

Heaters on the outdoor seating area didn't heat our dinners of 6 fully. Could do with being bigger. However the food, drinks & service was fantastic!😊

Really tasty Thai food, we all throughly enjoyed our meals. Friendly staff and great customer service abiding by all the current rules. Excellent outdoor area and heaters to suit our needs as we were from different households. Would definitely go back.
