Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Railway

Substantial early 20th-century Greene King pub (with residual Flaming Grill signage) located - as you would expect - near Greenford station. Modernised with semi-modern furniture throughout the various seating / dining areas, so no real character left within. Two pool tables, and a beer garden off to one side. I probably caught it on a bad day - and the staff attitude certainly also left something to be desired - but none of the four handpumps (two of which were sporting reversed IPA and Abbot clips) proved to be operational so made do with a swift John Smiths (£1.35, half) before catching my train.

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.
