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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
