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.
The service wasn’t great waited 20 min to then have to ask if we could order desert
Excellent food and service
Dan and his team went the extra mile to accommodate our party in the restaurant. Excellent service throughout. Good quality well prepared food.
Our second visit for lunch. The service and food are excellent. Without doubt we will return
Good service, quick response overall happy.
Yorkshire puddings a little over done but fabulous meal and cider
Amazing food and such big portions. Best meal we have had in a long time.
If I am very honest the roast lunch wasn't quite so good as the last time we visited. Yorkshire puddings very overcooked (bordering on black-ish) and veg selection wasn't wonderful - one carrot and some cabbage. Waiter 'Harry' was very pleasant.
It was horrible weather and cosy inside, but after a while the restaurant became very warm, uncomfortably so!
Great tour followed by a wonderful lunch, food was delicious and the service fantastic, the cider was pretty good too :)
The pork belly main was covered in 1inch of white soft fat, discusting. I had to ask the waiter 3 times for a drink, he kept getti g distracted, very poor.
Really lovely place . Great food good service.
Polite and very friendly staff only down side was that we only had 2 glasses on table for water and it took a little while to get 2 more but other than that everything was brilliant and will definitely go again.
Great, we loved it
We had a very good meal. It was lunch and busy.
Amazing food and drinks! We also did the tour which was really interesting (and I dont even drink cider!) I cant wait to come back
Had amazing service and such a lovely pub. I said when i booked it was my partners birthday and they put balloons on table and wrote happy birthday in white chocolate and put few sweets and chocolates on the board. So impressed and happy with the experience. I came from Southampton and it was so worth the drive. Thank you for an amazing experience. Will definitely be back!
The staff made us feel very welcome and were very attentive. It was also a lovely surprise to receive a birthday card from the staff, such a lovely touch.
From the moment I booked the table at the Railway way back in 2019, I knew I had made a good choice of venue for my 40th Birthday celebrations. The over the phone booking was simple and the advanced ordering of food was made very easy by Chiara. On the night the staff were friendly and helpful every need was catered for, nothing was too much trouble The 13 people in my party where very impressed by all the same things I have already mentioned several have suggested that they will take friends back too. We will be booking a table to celebrate my wife's birthday later in the year. Paul Shepherd
