Tris C left this review about Railway Tavern

This pub was built in 1896, only to be rebuilt in 1936 for Charrington’s (there’s a fine Toby ceramic plaque to the outside left wall) in the brewers’ Tudor style and makes it onto CAMRA’s inventory for having an interior of Some Regional Importance, which can be seen on their site and the pub’s website’s gallery. In all, it’s very charming and atmospheric.
There were few drinkers on my visit, but with a busy house, I can imagine it could have a good atmosphere in here, me perched in the rear ‘snugette’, where some vinyl upholstery can be seen, clinging to life with the help of some gaffer tape, which should be remedied.
The barman was friendly, presiding over one unused pump, Doom, Bass and Landlord at £4.90 and good.
This is probably the best all-round pub in N8, so is a must-visit if in the area.

This is a very pleasant pub of attractive outward appearance and retaining enough internal features to justify a listing on Camra's heritage pubs website, where a detailed description can be found. I assume that the three model aeroplanes suspended from the ceiling are not part of the architect's plans from 1936. Another unusual feature is the table skittles board, prominently sited not far inside the front door. The bar is on the right and serves both rooms, the rear lounge area with its copper hooded fireplace being separated by only half screens from the front part (which used to be two rooms). There were three real ales on at the time of my visit: Timothy Taylor Landlord, Sharps Doom Bar and Marstons Pedigree. The Landlord was in good condition. Worth a look in when in this part of town.

A classic 1930's mock tudor exterior and worth a look around the interior for good features.The open plan set up is on three levels,and by the front door there was a table skittles board.Furniture is traditional with long bench seating on the middle level,while at the back is a most attractive fireplace with a beaten copper flue,and room in the inglenook for two small tables.Everywhere there is good wood panelling ,so pleasing that so much has survived.
The bar is at two levels and has three handpumps offering Doom Bar and Purity UBU (passable but £2.20 the half) on my trip.There is a pub grub menu ,although I did see one punter send food back to the kitchen,and there are some tapas options.The rear section is used for Irish music nights on Wednesdays and the two flatscreen were playing music channel output,so music is a theme here.
Nothing to get excited about on the ale front,but a decent interior to have a squint at.
