Steve C left this review about The Railway Tavern

This place isn't much to look at from the outside and the large main bar at the front is unimaginatively decorated leading one to think that the owners can't be bothered. Thankfully my fears were unfounded as the barmaid that served me was very hospitable and my pint of Guinness sloshed down with no effort. There is no real ale and only a limited selection of standard draught available, which is unfortunate.

There is a plasma screen and another couple of tiny screens that were all showing the rugby on Sky Sports creating a decent atmosphere, but I can't imagine much going on here when there is no sport showing.

There is another bar around the back that I think is used as a function room rather than a general bar. I was very impressed with the large garden and I was surprised that more people weren't utilising it as the afternoon sun was fantastic. There was a large BBQ ready to churn out some sausages and also a seafood stall that is open thus-sun 12 till 8.

I think that this place is a little hidden away and doesn't look that inviting, but it is worth a visit.
