The Railway

The Railway at Lowdham (formerly the Railway Inn) has undergone a major transformation. Significant financial investment has gone into this traditional village pub, creating a delightful, welcoming interior with some unique touches. These include an old-fashioned ticket machine on the wall and railway-inspired pictures and clocks, giving a nod to the pub’s history, plus a wood-burning stove and an open pass to the kitchen. The property also boasts a fabulous outside space, including a raised deck and brilliant children’s area.

Inside you’ll find eating areas plus a bar section where non-dining drinkers will feel at home. The pub is the brainchild of David Hage and Mark Osborne (previously had chef at Café Bleu in Newark, Hart’s and the former Riverbank in Nottingham), and there is a strong emphasis on high quality food with an imaginative menu and great choice of drinks.

We ate at the Railway on a busy Sunday and enjoyed some superb beef, pan-fried sea bream and Cropwell Bishop Stilton with baked red onion. The hot arancini of cod and spring onion starter was stunning and our dessert of sticky toffee pudding with muscavado caramel sauce was delicious.

This pub is a gem. It is family friendly, with plenty of outdoor space for the kids, welcoming and takes pride in its food. Well worth a visit.

    Birthday mealOur little girls birthday meal... First time experiencing the railway and we weren’t disappointed!! Broad selection of dishes to choose from, great beer and some interesting objects potted around the bar/ restaurant to keep you occupied between dishes. The pork belly and rhubarb starter was nicely balanced, Cod with potato, mushroom and chicken sauce was deep in flavour and brilliantly cooked and lastly the pistachio and parsnip cake with cherries and chocolate was an indulgent and somewhat unusual combination that works a treat!! Definitely be visiting again.

    Lovely meal at a cosy pubOur first visit to the newly refurbished Railway was a most enjoyable one. Six of us dined and there was sufficient choice to accommodate gluten free, wheat free and a fish allergy. The atmosphere is cosy, the decor charming and the hosts most welcoming. We dined in the bar as we had a small (well-behaved) dog and we were made most welcome. Service could not be faulted and the food was excellent and good value. The only downside was limited car parking but it was just before Christmas. Overall I thoroughly recommend.
