Real Ale Ray left this review about The Railway

This pub has gone through a complete turnaround now that Lincoln Green Brewery have taken it over. Apart from the refurbished interior a major effort has also taken place to regenerate the large rear patio garden area, which was completely full of customers on our return to the train station later on in the evening. Eight handpumps on our visit, plus a choice of six craft keg. I went for the Adnam's Ghost Ship and Lincoln Green Marion, both were in top condition.

Presumably this was once a Station hotel but today you would hardly know the station is even there as it's hidden behind Poundland.
Ominously it had a Star pubs lease for sale sign on the outside.
Inside it's a large open plan roughly square room that is carpeted at the front and wooden floored at the rear. I noticed a pool table at the rear. It was quiet on my Friday midday visit.
The bar has four hand pumps which had three unused and Theakston Best (£3.20). This was warm and rank so I sent it back and the landlady said she should have pulled some through (so why didn't she?). The replacement was better but not great. I wouldn't return here.
