Occupying a picturesque spot in the quaint village of Sandford is the Railway Inn, a Thatchers family-run venue that offers a warm welcome to all who visit. This traditional pub has been sympathetically restored, seamlessly blending the beauty of the old with the comforts of the new.

At the Railway Inn, provenance is important. Produce is sourced locally, meat and eggs are free-range, and fish is sustainably farmed. Menus change to suit the season’s offering, meaning even regulars will always have something new to try. It was a wonderfully warm evening when I visited, and so I chose to enjoy my meal in the pub’s light and airy conservatory. I was presented with the extensive menu, and was promptly faced with the difficulty of choosing from the wealth of options. After much deliberation I chose to begin with breaded Somerset Brie, deliciously melted and paired with apple and Thatchers Gold chutney. My main course promptly followed – grilled Blagdon pork, well matched with roasted apple, celeriac and braised leek, and topped with Thatchers Heritage jus. Both courses were excellent, both beautifully presented and a delight to eat. Accompanying the fare is a range of fine wine, soft drinks and a carefully chosen selection of real ale.

If you’d prefer to visit for just a drink and a catch-up with your nearest and dearest, head to the bar area, which boasts plenty of cosy sofas to snuggle up on, and an open fire to keep everyone toasty and warm when the weather turns cold. On warmer days, the spacious garden area is the perfect place to soak up the sun with a delicious tipple in hand, while the little ones make use of the children’s play area and Wendy house. An outdoor pizza oven is soon to be completed, adding another string to the Railway Inn’s already impressive bow.
