Ideally located at at Culham Railway Station, which is on main Oxford to Paddington line, The Railway is a thriving bed and breakfast that offers ten rooms, a cosy restaurant and a well-stocked bar. Friendly proprietors Pauline and Roy make you feel right at home. We sampled delicious and very reasonably priced home-cooked meals starting with vegetable soup that was packed with flavour, and a tasty prawn cocktail. We followed this with lamb cutlets in minted gravy from the specials menu, and a classic steak and ale pie served with chips, seasonal veg and wonderful gravy. Both dishes more than lived up to expectations. Nearing capacity but unable to resist dessert, we decided to share an apple and cinnamon butter crumble and custard. It was as delicious as it sounds. Sunday lunch is also a popular choice, and with such great food and hospitality, we’ll certainly be back to try it for ourselves. It’s no wonder The Railway Inn earned the Best of Abingdon accolade for 2016 and 2017.
