We went for Sunday lunch today. The choice on the menu was different to what you might expect and a refreshing change. I had the chefs fish stew and it was delicious. My husband had traditional roast beef, the veg selection was lovely with leeks in a cheese sauce, red cabbage with nuts and carrot and sweet potato mash. Extra gravy came to the table automatically. Deserts were also fabulous. The staff were unobtrusive but friendly. Do go and give these new proprietors a try it will be well... (read more)

We would recommend The Railway to anyone who wanted to have a throughly relaxing meal in a setting that is comfortable, clean very well presented. The staff are great and we always feel very welcome. (read more)

When we first arrived The Railway looks a smart pub/restaurant with a lovely log fire. The menu was nicely presented with a choice of Steaks on the Grill Menu. However the service was dreadful. The soup we ordered was salty and the steaks were overcooked.

The menu is an eclectic mix of tantalising dishes all cooked to order using the finest locally sourced ingredients (the steaks are amazing) - I'm reliably informed that they come from a butcher in Bromyard.
Beautifully kept Wye Valley beers and a fab winelist - We go most Fridays and... (read more)

We were out to enjoy a quiet family meal (The Railway restaurant had been recommended by two people). One member of the party clearly ordered a MEDIUM - RARE steak, when this arrived it had obviously been overcooked. The meat was extremely leathery and was not tasty.
Instead of complaining at the start of the meal to the waitressing staff, we distrectly mentioned it at the end of the meal, and expected our bill to be reduced accordingly.
When the bill arrived there had been no deductions... (read more)
