Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Railway Tavern

Looks pretty tatty from the outside, but the interior is gradually being done up (and hence a rather pervading smell of paint). Still rather basic, it offers no real ale (just the inevitable John Smiths Smooth at £2.40/pint if you don't want lager). Given it's handy location by the station, let's hope that this one is starting back on the way up now (but it does have a long way to go).

A pub seriosly in need of a bit of care and attention. I arrived in Luton in a snowstorm and looking for shelter, decided to go in this place given that it's right next to the train station.
Despite some entertaining, colourful locals, there wasn't a great deal to recommend. The front room meant sitting with the aforementioned locals, whilst the back room had been stipped bare of anything visually stimulating and felt a bit like drinking in a doctor's waiting room (albeit a filthy doctor's waiting room).
With the dream location this place has been blessed with, they really should be doing more to attract the trade which is clearly passing straight by to the Bricklayers Arms just down the road. Shame.
