We were staying at the lovely Glangwili Mansion (Reviewed by me separately) and our host George booked a table for us at The Railway Inn. It was a Wednesday, so they had a Wednesday Night Steak Special, which we happily took. We added two soups (Pumpkin and Pea/ham) which were both very tasty. The steaks that followed were excellent and... More

Cant fault the food, first class, lovely atmosphere in the pub and ably served by Sophie. Only down side I saw was the floors could do with a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the floors in the toilets especially behind the doors.

After this pub was recommended to us, we deceided to give it a go. Walked in to a friendly establishment. However it was a bit cramped. Had a drink and was told to take a seat in the bar as the table wasn't ready no problem. After ordering and waited for a table to become free for half an hour... More

We went there as a party of 25 people. The food was excellent. I had roast beef dinner and the beef melted in your mouth, the pudding was excellent and the service was superb. Very friendly and helpful staff, I shall be going there again. Very highly recommend.

Wednesday night is steak night. Just fabulous. 2 x lovely steaks & home-made chips with a bottle of wine for £25 is incredible value. Great staff too. Oh, and their donuts with whiskey toffee sauce for pud are to die for! Well done Jane & crew. See you soon :)

Decided late on a Saturday to go out for a meal. Had not been to the railway for a couple of years so phoned up to book. They kindly asked if 8.30 was ok, as they were full early on. Enjoyed a nice meal in pleasant surroundings with good staff and reasonable prices. One of my favourite places.

Called here, as we had heard it was under new management. It was a wet, windy weekend so decided to go for a drink/meal. We walked in to find both the front and back door were wide open causing a gale through the entire building. We walked in through the back as we had parked in the carpark. There was... More

we stopped here on the way to our holiday cottage. The pub is very comfortable and modern. The barman was really friendly and helpful. Although we didn't eat there the food looked lovely and the small restaurant seemed very comfortable
