The last time I was in Langley Mill this pub was closed and I was told it was unlikely to reopen because it needed some extensive (and therefore expensive) work doing on the roof. Someone has evidently squared this circle by converting a large portion of the building to flats and reopening a pub of sorts in a corner of the ground floor. In fact, the state of the art toilets seem to take up more floor space than the bar and drinking area. There are four hand pumps, with three beers on, two from Titanic and one from local Navigation. (See photo.) It's rather odd to be in a large pub building like this but in a confined space similar to the micropubs we'd been doing all afternoon. Better than a permanently closed pub, though.

A friendly welcome awaits at the Railway Tavern and some surprisingly good beer.
There are blackboard lists of the Alcazar range inside and it's fairly broad with some 10 beers or so listed. Only two were on: Alcazar Ale, a pale and zesty thirst quencher and Fox Tale Ale, darker and more complex at 4.9% but very smooth. Both were in excellent nick and went down well. I've never come across Alcazar beers before but will certainly try them if I see them again. There are 8 handpumps here so maybe the Railway will offer more of the range over time. In the meantime, I'd happily return as it is.

Basic looking from the outside,but well worth a visit to a pub which is the brewery tap for the Alcazar Brewery.The interior retains the traditional Victorian layout with a seperate room to the left of the entrance,a central island bar with a public bar to the right and through the corridor to a back seating area with it's own serving area.
Most of the locals were drinking the lager and televised sport was on screens in all three rooms with different matches from both Sky and ESPN.However the two Alcazar ales stocked were in great nick and I would use this pub again in any future visit to Langley Mill.The welcome was friendly,but this is a traditional boozer and there was no sign of food.
