Local pub to the Bluebell Railway which we travelled on during half term. Thought it would be a lovely place to have lunch mid journey. It was clean but soulless and the food can only be described as average. Definitely nothing impressed and wouldn’t bother visiting again when there are others in the area. Definitely the most disappointing meal I’ve had for some time.

Don't often go out for meals but decided the wife deserved a treat, went to the Railway tavern because the beer is good.
We both had the Rump steak, which for me is unusual to order steak other than a dedicated steak house, However, the medium steak was great and so was the medium rare. I would recommend the Tavern to anybody, well done guys!

It was the first time I was in a tavern really. It was clean and not smokey, that's a plus for me. I didn't drink alcohol so I can't comment on it. The food was very good, I was surprised. I has a very nice atmosphere. The people were friendly. I would go again.

We visited The Railway for the first time in ages as we had heard that the food there was really good value. Indeed it was. My husband and I both ordered the Sunday roast and it came with crispy roast potatoes and fresh veg. The service was excellent and served with a smile. We're definitely going to make the place a regular haunt from now on.

We came here on as a party of 3 for lunch and we enjoyed ourselves. The place is large so plenty of tables and seats, we found a table and decided what to order. The Menu is vast and had a good selection of meals, we ordered at the bar and for 1 x Scampi & Chips, 2 Ciabattas with chips & Salad, 1 x Nachos plus 2 alcoholic drinks and 1 x Tea came to just over £30 which we all thought was great value.

Food arrived in good time and the portion sizes were really good value for money, the food tasted great and we all agreed it was a great lunch stop off.

Look forward to returning!
