Now owned by Flaming Grill Pubco ,this 1930's roadhouse has had a recent makeover.The interior is open plan but with three distinct areas.To the left hand side is where most diners head,although at the front there was a flat screen with the footie on ,while in the middle there are two handpumps serving Old Speckled Hen and a good London Pride at £3.19pp justifying the cask marque accreditation.To the right of the pub is another flat screen,a pool table,fruit machine and this is where the locals gather,some well oiled on my midweek trip.
Throughout the furniture is modern,boxy chairs and tables,some high tables and a mix of "flaming" carpet or pine flooring.There is a clever use of mirrors in the dining area,making it appear much more spaceous.
It's all clean and functional but lacking any pub atmosphere.I didn't eat but it served it's purpose for a quick pint after getting off the nearby tube.

I have used the Railway for many years and have returned to eat the Carvery there today. I always liked the atmosphere and the friendly service. However today! I asked for a Bulmers at the bar together with a Carvery meal. There was no apple bulmers. ok waiting for the carvery, the chef was very abrupt with the patrons and extreamly intimidating. the vegitables had run very low and depleted in most trays. I asked the girl if there was anymore brocolli, she told me it wouldn't be ready for 5mins and to come back (my plate was already half full) so I would have to come back with a cold dinner. I ate what I had, which was nice, but the service had to be remarked upon. I always have had a lovely meal in there and I know that cut backs have to be made, but this should not be done by relinquishing the quality of the service. I am a bit upset for what has happened to my favourite carvery, but I shall still be eating carvery however, elsewhere from now on.

This very large Spirit Group pub is split into five sections with two seating areas along with another two areas served by their own bar and a large restaurant at the rear. The décor is pretty much what one would expect in a pub that advertises itself as a carvery, but I was surprised that one of the two plasma screens at the front of the pub was tuned into Kiss FM which was playing at an excessive volume.

The staff seemed pleasant enough, but I only spotted Old Speckled Hen on hand pump alongside a limited standard draught selection. I went for the Guinness which was well below par, but I did visit fifteen minutes after opening time so I had the first of the day.

There is a solitary picnic table out the front which can best be described as a car park, but some better seating can be found in the beer garden to the side of the pub which has a covered decked area and some more picnic tables on a well kept lawn. It is not the greatest location due to being on the edge of a large industrial estate meaning that there are countless lorries thundering past.

The food seemed reasonably priced and although I didn’t try any it did look OK, but I cannot see myself returning here in the near future.
