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.
Fantastic service and lovely food. We will definitely be visiting again.

We stayed one night, the room was very comfy, excellent shower. We had dinner and then breakfast the next day, both were very good. Friendly staff.
Much quieter than previously experienced but still very nice atmosphere and food was lovely.
Tour at Thatcher's followed by meal at lunchtime for my girlfriend's birthday. The staff wrote happy birthday in chocolate on a plate for her (with some sweets too) as a surprise which she loved. Fantastic food and service. Great ciders. Highly recommend.
Dining hall full of echos, soft materials on walls to reduced reflected sound would help. Portions very large. My wife found desert - trifle nothing special, cake at base was too hard for her taste.
An excellent meal with great service and very friendly staff.
We had the beef roast which was lovely however it would have been nice to have some more vegetables. One carrot, handful of cabbage (which not everyone likes) and one cauliflower cheese floret was a bit sparse in our opinion.
Great pub/restaurant. Great food and good value for money. Service excellent and friendly.
Great place, great cider, we will return.
Limited access to accessibility toilet as behind lots of tables
Took part in the Thatchers Tour as a 50th birthday present for my husband then had lunch in the Railway Inn afterwards - the perfect end to a very enjoyable day. The staff were very friendly and the food was superb.
Limited menu. Nothing out of the ordinary. Standard pub food.
Amazing the staff were so helpful when we had to move our booking half an hour. We had an amazing first wedding anniversary meal. Defiantly we will be back.
When booking online asked to arrive st 17:45 because table had to be handed back but 19:45, but when seated, advised kitchen doesn’t open until 18:00?? Waitress extremely helpful.
Service was good and we didn’t have to wait too long for our meals. Menu is very different to normal “pub food” so makes a pleasant change
Gone down hill since our last visit. Three small pieces of chicken on the salad was not enough for the price charged. Waiters not the same as last time. They were unable to chat with us and only asked if the food was alright after two of us had finished our main course. My wife’s chair was up against a wooden post and she had to ask for the table to be moved in order to sit down. The waiter was unable to explain what was in the Gurnard dish. He went to ask the chef and came back to tell us that ‘it was some kind of spice’ it’s a real pity that our second visit was so disappointing because our first visit about a month ago was great.
Food was amazing, service was lovely and the ciders! Very pretty venue, would definitely recommend
We had a lovely lunch at the railway. The decor in the pub and restaurant is lovely. The sticky toffee pudding was delicious.
Excellent food, lovely atmosphere and the Birthday slate was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. Thank you.
Always have good meals here, a place for an occasion/event dinner. Glass extension is a great place to eat, will return.
Great food and bear
