very good but can't be arsed with trying to find twenty five words to describe what was a very nice meal. Is that good enough
Food and ambience first class. Only one criticism. As the ceilings are vaulted the cacophony of people talking makes it very noisy. Much better if there was no music. Otherwise, will definitely go back again.
Friendly and good service. Don't expect your food to come out 10mins after ordering. Everything is freshly cooked and fantastic quality. Never had a shoddy meal and we have been here many times
Lovely food. Great service. There were 8 of us for Saturday evening. The ribs were lovely and the puddings were brilliant. We all enjoyed the evening.
Chose this restaurant by the positive reviews and that it catered for vegans. We were not disappointed! There were 6 of us, we had a lovely big table in lovely surroundings and the food was delicious! Friendly staff and efficient service. We will definitely be going back and wouldn't hesitate recommending The Railway Inn to others. We all had a really nice evening!
I went there in the evening with my family.The staff were very friendly,a good atmosphere the menu was brilliant my husband had steak I ordered pie of the day my daughter had the most burger my son ordered a burger from the children's menu. The food was amazing !HUGE portions beautifully presented even though we were full we had to order pudding! Baileys cheesecake,chocolate brownies and crumble absolutely delicious.Yummie! Highly recommend this pub. It's the best in the area for food and for a friendly atmosphere.Good value for money
We had an absolutely brilliant evening. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was clean and inviting. Plenty of choice on the menu and every dish that was ordered was beautifully presented and cooked to, in my view, perfection. Will definitely be eating there again, especially for special occasions. I will certainly be recommending them to all my friends and family.
Great atmosphere, Service and Food - a first class experience. There is always a warm welcome, the drink and food are first rate with a wonderful varied menu of both. Service is paced just right and excellent - the Railway is always spotlessly clean and we always a great time when we visit. Very impressed.
All members of our party of seven were very happy with their various main courses and desserts. The topside of beef was especially good whilst the vegetarian lasagne and sticky toffee pudding were highly rated. A good range of drinks was available including a "Railway Inn" real ale. Prices for both food and drink were reasonable whilst the service was friendly and efficient.
Excellant service and lovely food. Only criticism is the New Zealand Marlborough bottle of wine we ordered was not cold. The waitress said it had come from the cellar as there was none in the fridge . We had to put ice cubes in the wine which is not ideal . Please can you ensure your fridges are stocked up in future!
This pub has turned round in the last few years to a great place for eating meeting and generally having a great meal with family and friends of all ages . A family run place making you feel comfortable straight away . Have to mention the music ... Love it !
The service was friendly and attentive, however they could have known more about the menu and the music in the dinning area could have been softer. The food was of high standard and extremely delicious. Booking on line was quick and easy. I would recommend an evening at the Railway
Lovely pub with great food, generous helpings and attentive staff Although I do not have a dog it was good to see how dog friendly the pub was, all well behaved too! First time of visiting and will certainly be back
Food was generally good quality although the chocolate brownies had clearly been microwaved and had gone hard around the sides. One main meal was also missing from the order so had to wait by which time everyone else on the table had finished eating.
We have visited several times. Always a warm welcome, Winter is lovely with the log burner. Summer you can use the garden A well presented menu all beautifully cooked including vegetarian options So pleased it's local
Excellent food, Excellent Service, Have been there before, and would definitely go again. It was a lovely friendly place and was very busy, The people that have taken over should be very proud of themselves.
It was a very good evening. The service was excellent and food was good. the place was very clean an quie so you could have a chat . Would recommend it to others.
Lovely atmosphere, great food (we all had a roast). Perhaps a slice or two more of the meat for our two growing teenage sons but otherwise fantastic, we'll definitely be returning. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
Had a lovely evening at the railway inn. The food was fantastic, I thoroughly recommend the blade of beef. The staff were very welcoming and the service was first class.
Excellent service, warm and attractive areas and delicious food. Would definitely recommend. The roast dinner was scrummy. The attention every member of staff gave to our table ensured we had a relaxing and super Sunday lunch.
The best pub food we have had for years. - Good extensive menu; excellent quality of food; friendly staff; welcoming and clean environment. Will definitely be going back.
We stopped by here as a party of six on our way to Southampton port to catch a cruise ship. Lovely place, great food, fabulous service!
Lovely food, big portions, very friendly and attentive staff. good choice of veg options as had 2 vegetarians in party. Pudding were amazing, especially chocolate brownie
Food and service excellent. Only slight negative was the cackling older women on the next table. Far too noisy for a 6 o'clock reservation. Chicken wings and ribs were very tasty.
It was excellent. Efficient service. The food was beautifully presented, of good quality and tasted superb. Will be back and also telling friends about it.
Delicious Sunday roast with perfectly cooked vegetables followed by a tasty crumble. Service was great, would definitely recommend - just maybe consider sharing a pudding!
I visited with a friend, and we both enjoyed a very tasty meal with good service and a cosy pub atmosphere. I would definitely return.
Lovely food using great quality ingredients will recommend to friends. Will be going back again and taking family. Nice welcoming pub with a lovely atmosphere.
Very nice food, good portions, good menu and specials on blackboard. Busy and lively the night we were there. Would return. Background music slightly irritating and unecessary.
Very good food with wide selection on specials board, excellent staff but a restaurant a bit noisy. Access for our infirm parent was poor, with steep steps
We visited on Mothering Sunday and it was very busy. We loved our roast dinners, and the serving ce was good. We would definitely visit again.
Great restaurant. Food is nice - although more dessert options would be great. Lovely atmosphere and staff are very friendly. Would recommend a visit here.
Lovely food and excellent service. Was a large group of us and they had no problems catering for us. Would definitely return again! Would recommend
OurFood was cold when we received it. The roast potatoes tasted as though they had been cooked in reused oil which was a disappointment. We did receive a 25% discount on the bill to compensate.
