About The Railway Inn
A picturesque pub in heart of Sandford that offers unique fresh foods and our complete range of ciders as well as local ales and a selection of quality wines,spirits and minerals. The pub is dog friendly and has free wifi.
Come to the heart of the village and enjoy this traditional country pub, with its welcoming bar area and open fireplace. Natural stone features, comfortable surroundings and a traditional oak-framed dining room create a fantastic space in which to relax, eat and drink.
Eat in the informal bar area or in the dining room. Expert food and cider pairings come highly recommended and all dishes, created in the new kitchen, shine with their expert execution, taste and flavour.
In the landscaped pub gardens you’ll find plenty of outdoor seating, a children’s play area and a wendy-house constructed from one of the traditional out-buildings. A large grassy area will soon be available for picnics and local events.
Great place for a Sunday lunch , will definitely be going back
An absolutely wonderful setting with delicious food and a great desert menu!
Another lovely meal at The Railway Inn. The Sunday roasts are so amazing! Great service as always
We booked the Railway Inn because for my 70th birthday friends had given me £40 in vouchers. As Saturday was our wedding anniversary we booked that date. 1. Waited AGES for my cider to be brought to the table. (Actually thought waitress had forgotten all about it) 2 FAR too much bread (and not enough fish) in sharing starter. 3.My wife and I both noticed a plate going back (to the kitchen?) filled with chips. We actually remarked lady was probably too full to eat them!! 4. Oh, no! That was not the case. When my wife's meal arrived, with chips, they looked terrible.Waitress did say they had an 'issue' with the chips. This was reiterrated by another (more senior?) waitress. There was indeed an 'issue' with the chips. 5. Why oh why were they then served, knowing there was an 'issue? Why was my wife not informed and asked to make another choice? 6. Consequently....70th birthday gift spoilt. Wedding anniversary meal spoilt. 10% off the bill could not make up for how undervalued we felt.. 7. Left very, very disappointed.
Great food and drink, lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff!
Lovely warm welcome by the bar staff & my guests were impressed by the offer of a cider tasting. The dining room was beautifully illuminated by the setting sun, you have really designed a superb space. The food was good and well presented, the wine was beautifully chilled- the ice bucket was appreciated. The mac cheese would benefit from the option of a little crispy bacon on the top & it would be great to see 1 or 2 more adventurous dishes, perhaps on a specials board... Overall, still my favourite pub in the area, thank you.
Superb food, superb service, loved it.
Lovely surrounding and very good service. Staff were very polite.
Lovely meal, generous portions.
Excellent place, fantastic food and brilliant staff. Perfect
Fabulous staff. Great lunch, amazing pud. Wonderful cider obviously!
Erin was great, all round a great night, all the staff were fab. My lamb was raw but was sorted out quickly without any fuss and was beautiful......
Great food service and venue
We chose the Railway to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday. I couldn't have asked for,me; wonderful food, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Made to feel special by our lovely waitress, who surprised us at the end by coming out with a 'Happy Birthday' slate of home made sweets to go with our coffee.
It was lush food
If you enjoy pub grub food then not the place to go. A very small menu with a very niche style of food. Food wasn’t bad tasting just there wasn’t a lot to choose from that didn’t come with just your standard onion rings and chips.
Thank you for a wonderful day, the food and service were amazing! We will be back.
While the food was great, we waited over 1.5 hours for it. This is really unnaceptable. Even our drink order took about 30 mins to arrive and then came out in dribs and drabs. We had a small child with us and it was very difficult with all of this waiting. Even when we were told our food was on its way out of the kitchen we still waited another 20 minutes.
Excellent food and customer service.
Fantastic food in a lovely setting! Plus the great choice of drinks, not just cider!!
Music in bar could be better
Dave our waiter very friendly and helpful
Nice food - but really slow service. Waited ages just to get seated - despite a reservation - because of a queue at the bar. Need to segment staff duties. Everyone's doing everything and there seems to be no organisation - although they were all very pleasant. Just needs better management.
Generally the service was good and all the girls were very polite and dealt with everything professionally,
