We stopped off here and had lunch, what a surprise, the food was excellent and staff brilliant. This hotel used to be known as DIRTY DICKS, it should now be known as a first class 5 star hotel, with super menus.

We have visited here for dinner on many occasions and every time the food and service have been excellent. On our latest visit we used an Itison voucher. 2 courses for 2 with a glass of wine each for £19. Unbeatable value. We shall continue to visit often.

Visited the Railway as part of a voucher deal and what a strange place it is. I would describe the restaurant experience as defined in the title "Juxtaposition- two things placed close together with contrasting effect". The modern, stylish bar and seating area was extremely comfortable and atmospheric while a few metres away an open plan almost cavernous old school...
